Epoxy glue is an extremely strong adhesive, used e.g. for building airplanes, automobiles, bicycles, boats, snowboards and other products that require high strength bonds. Commonly available in hardware stores is the 5 minute epoxy glue, a two component glue that comes in a tube with two different compartments. One is a resin, the other one a curing agent. When the two are mixed, they turn ito a strong plastic material.

Cured epoxy poses few health risks, but liquid and partially cured epoxies, as well as dust from sanding introduce numerous health threats that need to be managed as efficiently as possible.

Good news is that because of a growing demand, bio epoxy resins are becoming more commonly available nowadays.
