Subject: RE: cracked resin table tops - the solution

Post:

Greetings,

I mentioned slate top science table tops and how to clean, polish them.
My table tops are resin tops, not slate tops.

When the tables were installed, one end had a small piece broken off.
The installers repaired it with a two-part black epoxy cement. In is
almost impossible to see the repair. The material is:

Smooth-On
PC3 Black Epoxy Cement label - on one can
PC Series Part B label - on other can

Says it joins, bonds, caulks sections of laboratory counter top

Phone 908-604-2224
1000 Valley Road
Gillette, NJ 07933

Says it is for industrial use only

Hope this helps

Dick

Dick's message reminds me of a lingering question I have. Finally
inspired to
write, here's my question.

Our lab benches have resin tops. They are heavier than lead (it seems)
and
black. We managed to drop one and crack it, breaking off a large corner.
It's
a dark gray inside. Does anyone know of a way to "glue" these pieces
back
together?

Jim
