Araldite on the side of the angels
Keen gardener Roddy Clenaghan noticed his resident angel had apparently suffered a crash landing - result, one broken wing.
Just hours later the cherubic guardian was back on duty, courtesy of Araldite Standard adhesive.
Araldite® Standard is one of the brands trademark high strength epoxy products. With good gap filling properties and a temperature tolerance of -30 oC to 65oC it's ideal for this job.
Here's how the repair was made.
Brush loose particles and dirt off both parts to be bonded.
Araldite® Standard packaging is eco-friendly and easy to use - just slip the blister free of its backing card
The double-barreled syringe pack has some smart features; break off the cap and just one plunger delivers equal amounts of resin and hardener.
There is an integral re-closure cap to keep the adhesive in good condition and a snap-off mixing spatula
Resin and hardener are thoroughly mixed in seconds
Araldite® Standard was applied to both surfaces and the wing then attached using firm pressure for about 30 seconds.
Maximum bond strength is achieved in 14 hours - and the angel is restored to glory.

While ARALDITE RAPID does not contain any highly toxic components, it also does not meet the very strict standards required in order to be considered an acceptable food contact material in the EU. Thus we cannot support using a mug glued with ARALDITE RAPID.
