Fixing a delam, what epoxy should I use? And how?
Like the title says I am fixing a pretty large delamanation and trying to find some epoxy in my town. I searched and googled and came up with that hysol epoxy from lock-tite, but unfortunately I cant find that stuff anywhere around here. Damnit I cant remember the name of the stuff I did find here, it is for marine use and it remains flexible, is water proof, and can set underwater, and it's white which happens to be the color of my top sheet and base. Anyway it is like $25 for a syringe when everything else is like $11, so that kind of leads me to believe it is good quality. The hysol epoxy is around the same price ($21 online).
I hit a tree buried under snow and now I have a gaping boardgina from the end of the edge up about two inches in the curve of the nose. I picked out as much tree as I could while trying not to pull out too much board guts. Now my p-tex still looks lumpy like there is still debris in it but that should go back down once glued and clamped no? I'm sure I got all of the foreign material out. But was wondering if it is ok to pry it apart more to make sure. I am worried because I had to pry it a bit to clean the stuff out and I dident like seeing the p-tex lifting beside the edge like that...so I stopped prying.
And the edge itself took a little damage too. It looks like I split it so the last 1/16" is just kind of a chunk kinked out to the side. I don't know if I should bang it back in, file it down, or remove it and fill it with epoxy, or do something else...I suppose I pic might help if I am unclear explaining this, I can take one tomorow if it helps.
Oh yeah the board is a Lib dark series.
