Dries hard but not brittle, flexible without cracking. No heat box needed for curing. However, like any epoxy this glue can resoften and cause a delamination if temperatures reaches over thresholds. (80-85 degrees Celsius) Therefore, using heat to cure will give you extra bonding strength and will increase the temperature threshold at which the glue will resoften. Cooking the bow at 185-200 degrees (80-100 degrees Celsius) will increase resoftening threshold from 125-130 degrees to a much higher threshold. Wrap the bow completly with shrink wrap or plastic wrap before cooking to prevent the wood and bamboo from drying out and becoming brittle. If you do not wish to use a heatboxs simply make sure curing takes place in at least 70-75 degrees minimum. Glue will set up in about 12 hours and will fully cure in about 24-36 hours.
