  • Coating an epoxy type filler

    Can anyone tell me how well powder takes to JB Weld or is there another filler that would work better. I'm going to shoot my parts with Ult Chrome if that matters. I'm wanting to smooth out some aluminum welds before coating and it's hard to get into some of the places I need to get to with sandpaper or grinding stones. . Thanks for any advice or info.

    Ive HEARD it both ways, it works, it doesnt. I personally use JB weld to smooth the plastic LS intake manifolds and have NEVER had a problem.

    With that being said,,,,,,,, you may have to warm the JB to get powder to stick to it, so its a give and take I guess.

        It will take the heat, but is not conductive.

        It will work, but there are better products out there - namely Tiger's Epo-Strong.

        I haven't used it yet (Epo), but it's come on good recommendation.

          I use USC's "All Metal" for repairs. Powders usually stick to it cold, takes up 600 degrees, works and sands like auto bondo, it's sandable in @ 30min to an hour ( depends on how much hardener you use ) and after blowing off the dust, it's ready for powder.

            I've dealt with Lab Metal (sux) used JB Weld (not conductive, needs heated) and Metal to Metal (noticed Bubbles while it heated, then disappeared) and All Metal (Ditto w/Beebob, works good and conductive).

            With the Metal to Metal, I would be afraid with it rising when heated, if it was bonding to the metal after it cooled. I don't know at this point if it did or not. Do want to try the EPO stuff. Hear it's pretty good.

              I use the All Metal as well. Since most of my repairs are limited to road rash nicks on wheels or casting pores in valve covers, I use the 2-part putty that comes in a small tube. The hardner is the inner layer, the putty is the outer layer. You cut off a length to make how much you need, squeeze and knead it together until the color is even, and apply with a putty knife. You have about 2 minutes to work with it before it sets too much, but in about 30 minutes, you can sand it and powder right over it. Never had a problem with it bleeding, but like I said I just use it on small areas of damage.
