Default Snowboard Layer Seperation

My snowboard is separating between the top sheet and the core layers. I have read around that epoxy will do the job. But that is very expensive. I do have some Pasco Fix adhesive though. Would I be able to use that to fix the separating layers?

You really want to use epoxy, if it as a large splinter I use flexible epoxy so it doesn't fall off when you flex the board.

Go to the dollar store & grab some for a buck, it'll work.

With the epoxy, what would I use to spread it? I'm thinking a strong piece of wire or a thin, sturdy sheet of metal.

I don't know if you're joking or not. But I will have a look anyway

I had a similar problem, someone on the forum recommended a syringe. Try that, if you can get your hands on one. Clamp, unclamp, wipe away excess epoxy, reapply, repeat.

I was being cereal. I use the cheap shit all the time.

I like to use bbq skewers, they are bamboo & pretty tough.
Sand it down to a flat point & you should be able to cram it in pretty deep.

Use the flat part to smear epoxy like a butter knife.

Epoxy expensive?!?

I like the lepage stuff that comes in a syringe. It's two tubes meeting at one nozzle. You squeeze the two parts out onto a piece of plastic, or into the core of the board, use a toothpick to mix the epoxy REALLY well, then rest the board in a position that will allow the epoxy to sort of sit in its final position.

Generally the stuff is quite liquid when working with it, so you want to make a cavity for it to fill, then pour it in and let it cure. Then you can sand, file, shave it down and paint if need be. I repaired board this way in the mid-90's and it's still holding up.
