It’s a de­vel­op­ment of the orig­i­nal cold weld de­vel­oped in 1969 by Sam and Mary Bon­ham. Sam needed a cold weld prod­uct to use in his truck ser­vice garage, in­stead of tra­di­tional torch weld­ing and, work­ing with a Texas in­dus­trial chemist, he for­mu­lated an orig­i­nal “tougher than steel” two-part epoxy, which be­came known as J-B Weld. The Bon­hams went on to sell it through­out the US and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets.

J-B Weld is avail­able in var­i­ous forms and pack­ages, in­clud­ing twin tubes, putty sticks and easy-mix sy­ringes. Each J-B Weld two-part epoxy ad­he­sive is for­mu­lated to pro­vide the strong­est bond and is de­signed for spe­cific sur­faces in­clud­ing me­tal, wood, plas­tic, glass and more. It’s fast, easy-to-use, safe and cer­tain prod­ucts come in a va­ri­ety of colours.

While J-B Weld started off with automotive fixes in mind, and still in­cludes a range of ve­hi­cle-re­lated prod­ucts, in­clud­ing wa­ter pump hous­ing sil­i­cones and gas­kets for around the en­gine and even glass wind­screens, it has grown to em­brace a num­ber of other prod­uct ar­eas.

These in­clude Anaer­o­bic Thread Locker for lock­ing nuts/bolts, Liq­uid Epoxy Wood and Wood Putty for bond­ing an also fill­ing wood cracks and sur­faces, Epoxy ad­he­sive sticks such as WaterWeld, HighHeat, Plas­ticWeld and SteelStick, as well as a high-strength su­per glue that J-B Weld nat­u­rally calls Su­perWeld, which is ideal for glu­ing rear-view mir­rors back onto the wind­screen.

Se­lected prod­ucts use a twocom­po­nent (or 2k) epoxy sys­tem which uses re­ac­tive chem­istry to
