What is the proper surface preparation for gluing wood to metal using G2?
Make sure that the surfaces are clean, sanded, and free from contaminates. Best results are achieved by adding some silica thickener to the G2. Also, apply only enough clamp pressure to close the joint. Over clamping will squeeze out the G2, resulting in a weak bond.

My epoxy resin is taking too long to cure. How can I speed it up?
The only way to speed the cure of our epoxy resin products, once they've been applied, is to heat the room or the area that your project is in. Every 18°F increase in temperature cuts the time it takes for the resin to cure in half.
