Time was that most adhesives on the market told you three things: how much to use, setting time, solvent/thinner/debonder. In some cases where the application method had something special about it, more information on that aspect. Really useful information. Now you look at a tube of your favorite adhesive and there's nothing on the label except OSHA terrorism statements in two or three languages. They tell you not to sniff it, eat it, extrude it into various bodily orifices, bake with it, drink it, apply it as anti-fungal cream, light it, use it indoors, abuse it as an exotic/erotic lubricant, use it in the sun, flush the residue down the drain... and for God's sake, when you want to dispose of the empty tube, to be sure to wear a hazmat suit and call your local EPA representative for instructions. As I read one piece of OSHA BS after another, I could easily become convinced that merely opening the package is sure to kill me by some hideous disease at some time in the future, deform my unborn child, or make me pregant if I am a male of the species. None of us, it seems are safe from these thermo-nuclear level adhesives: not us, our spouses, children, pets.. and if we are to believe them, even our long dead forebears might be subjected to all kinds of indignities in their graves from our small dabs of glue. So, with this long preamble, I want to know:
- What's the cure time for GOOP? 2. What's the solvent for the residue?
Why hasn't anyone written a short handbook to all the common, and specialized adhesives that list the important stuff we need to know, instead of the B.S. that pencil-necked lawyers want to threaten us with?
