evercoat Panel bonding adhesives

Has anyone used them? I want to buy the 815 or 816. They can be used with a standard caulk gun. I will be gluing rear quarter patch panels and trunk extensions on with this, nothing structural.

I have never used them, but have used MANY other Evercoat products for years and they are some of the best. We use Evercoat fillers every day and they are TOP KNOTCH. I have to assume the adhesives are going to work like others on the market or better. I use other brand adhesives simply because they are supplied to me at work thru a wholesale supplier. We use a lot of it with great success.

Maxim? I have used it, no problems. Be advised that it is very thick and is hard to squeeze out of a caulking gun and it also has to be forced thru a 4" long mixing tube so make sure its a good quality gun as you will be using alot of force. I use an air powered caulk gun now

About $45 including shipping for a single tube. If you buy in bulk it would surely be cheaper.

Yes it is a 2K, the big difference is the cartrage can be used in a regular caulking gun. But as pointed out you better have a high quality one! The dime store sheetmetal versions will collapse under the pressure of trying to pump out the thick components and mixing them in the mixing tube.

XPS...,

I am curious of how you made out with the adhesive and if you did use the Evercoat? I am assembling a Vette and tried it on one piece and would like to know your results before I more forward. If it holds the body like it did the fasteners, it's good stuff!?!?

Thanks.

I ended up using Lord Fuzor products. I had a bad experience with the Evercoat stuff. The product is probably fine but it said that a standard caulk gun could be used. That is not true. You need a 28:1 trigger gun at least to have enough force. I ruined a couple of tubes and nearly gave myself hemroids trying to squeeze hard enough with a standard gun. I bought the lord fuzor gun and loved their product. Easy to work with and not too expensive. I haven't painted the car yet, just primed it. The stuff dries hard as steel yet is sandable. I would love to test the limits of the product and see how it could be used as a body filler or to mold parts out of it. I bet that if you were to put a bead of it at the edge of doors and fenders you could make perfect gaps without the product chipping off the first time the door bumped something.

Thanks for your response. You are the second person that posted and Evercoat interest that ended up using Lord Fuzor. When I tested the Evercoat 816 I did not use the mixing tips because I'm cheap and didn't want to waste the material in the mixer! I just shot equal amounts on a piece of poly and mixed it with a putty knife, then spread it. That is how I use stuff out of a can so I was use to it.

I've worked with Posi-mixers in all sorts of machine pumps and I know what a pain it can be. The chalking gun shot the goop out fine without the mixer tube.

If you wish to mold something, there is a shrinkage factor with any casting material so expect to build it up a bit after it dries.
