different types of ptex?

1. I want to repair some minor base scratches and holes;
I searched around for shops selling ptex and found numerous online but none of them mention where they get the stuff. I know Wintersteiger makes it, but are there other companies producing it, is their ptex better or worse, or shouldn't I bother at all?

2. There's a spot where the top layer is cracked and it came somewhat loose from the edge so I'd want to glue that together;
we have all kinds of industrial-grade 2-component glue at work, definitely usable to glue yourself to the ceiling for instance, but are these ok to fix a board or are there special requirements? like the glue must be epoxy based or cannot contain certain chemicals?

1. Candle Ptex sucks, you want shop quality stuff. Candle is alright for a quick repair, but it doesn't last.

2. The glue you have at work will probably be ok for the job. You want a glue that is flexible and can take cold temps.

3. Tognar has the ptex and glues that the pros use for repairs. You just might want to buy your stuff there...
