Paid Links / Last update on 2020-09-28J-B Weld Inc. is an international, employee-owned company founded in Sulphur Springs, Texas that manufactures adhesives and sealants. It has been in business for over 40 years.
J-B Weld Inc. is a part of the Commercial Real Estate Management Industry and markets its products here in the United States. J-B Weld Inc. prides itself on having established an avidly devoted customer base composed of people to whom doing a good job is vital.
Sam and Mary Bonham formed the J-B Weld Company back in 1969. It all began when Sam found that he required a “cold weld” product for use in his machine shop, rather than using the customary torch welding. Joining his efforts with a Texas A&M chemist, he conceived the idea of an innovative “tougher than steel” two-part epoxy and called it J-B Weld.
Well, the product took off and it wasn’t long before Sam and Mary moved from peddling the product out of their car across Texas to have it featured in stores worldwide.

Making a Strong Brand Even Better
In 2008 the company was bought by private investors who had as their leader the current CEO and President, Chip Hanson. In order to satisfy the present-day needs of its customers, within several years, the company expanded the product line to include new adhesives for plastic, wood, metal and general use.
The company also states that presently, J-B Weld products can be found in some of the largest automotive, home improvement, hardware, and big-box stores in the world.
ProductsAmong the products which the company offers are gasket markers, thread lockers, silicon sealants, and various other products.
Paid Links / Last update on 2020-09-28This is the company’s premium and original product: it is described as a distinctive, high-temperature epoxy adhesive the purpose of which is to bond materials together. It can be used on surfaces from porcelain, ceramic, metal, glass, ABS, PVC, concrete, marble, fiberglass, wood, paper or even fabric.
J-B Weld comes in 2 individual tubes: the “steel” (black tube containing resin) and the “hardener” (red tube). Mix equal amounts from each tube. In order to obtain the strongest bond, sandpaper should be used to roughen surfaces.
Is J-B Weld more powerful than welding? The answer is No. This product is a fantastic filler and can even be used for casting small parts, it is nowhere near as strong as metal that is welded. Understand this and do not expect the same results from this product as from welding.
This product contains about 50-60% of the strength of aluminum. It will turn a dark grey color after it has set, which can take anywhere from 15-24 hours. It can even be put on in layers if it is necessary. All that’s required is that you wait up to 8 hours before reapplying it.
It has been stated, however, that even though J-B Weld is very powerful, it works better on bonding metal rather than paper and fiberglass.
While J-B Weld may be super strong it is not toxic, however, accidental consumption of the product should be treated in the emergency room.

J-B Kwik Epoxy
Paid Links / Last update on 2020-09-28Like its predecessor, J-B Kwick is a two-part epoxy, used as either a filler or an adhesive, that can endure through medium-temperatures (up to 300 degrees F or 149 degrees C). While it cures a lot faster, it is not as strong and cannot withstand the amount of heat as the original product.
There are also further original products in J-B Stik (epoxy putty), Waterweld (underwater filler/adhesive), and several others.
While these products have been thoroughly tested and approved, it is highly recommended that you follow high-quality practices to obtain the best results possible.

JB Weld Tips
On December 15, 2012, Caltius Mezzanine closed a $20.2 million investment deal with J-B Weld. The company was described as creates, promotes, sells, and distributes a line of cold-weld epoxy adhesives to the hardware and automotive markets.
The monies from the investment were put towards refinancing the company’s current debt and enabling management to repurchase shares sold to outside investors. In the papers relating to the deal, J-B Weld was spoken of in the highest terms and given glowing praise for its success.
On December 12, 2019, the manufacturer of “MUFFLER WELD,” was granted a preliminary injunction by a federal district court in New Haven, Connecticut, preventing the manufacturer of “MufflerWeld” — J-B Weld from marketing or selling its product.
It was further determined that by using the trademark “MufflerWeld” brand the offending company, J-B Weld had already cost the original “MUFFLER WELD” a loss of income, due to the fact that it was proven that at least one customer discontinued using the “MUFFLER WELD” brand of products and began using the J-B Weld company’s “MufflerWeld” items instead.
This is essentially the only negative information available concerning the company J-B Weld. It is not known if the company will pursue further legal action, or will abide by the decision of this court.
