How to Fill a Gap with StarBond EM2000

Health and Safety Warning for StarBond EM2000

StarBond EM2000 is considered toxic if inhaled, so make sure to use it either outside or in a well-ventilated area. Be sure to wash your hands after each use and avoid contact with your eyes in order to prevent irritation.

What Woodworkers Advise about StarBond EM2000

Woodworkers are fans of StarBond EM2000, but many advise against using it for large gaps in wood since it can sometimes struggle to get everywhere because of the need to do it in layers. However, they are great advocates of the product for medium and small cracks because of how quickly it dries, how strong the hold is, how well it can take sanding and polishing, and how fine the applicators are.
StarBond EM2000 does a great job both as a gap filler and hobbyist glue and is adaptable to a wide variety of materials and projects. Its bond lasts strongly for a long time and maintains its semi-flexibility very well.
Because StarBond EM2000 is not completely flexible when dry, it is not recommended for gluing glass to glass. Glass on glass requires much more flexibility than StarBond EM2000 can give, which is why it is better for materials like wood and metal.
StarBond EM2000 comes with a 30-month shelf life warranty. So long as StarBond EM2000 is stored somewhere that does not dip below 40°F/4.5°C, it should last as least 30 months after purchase.
StarBond EM2000 has a viscosity of 1500-2500 mPa.s at room temperature, which is roughly the same viscosity as honey, so it is quite thick but it will flatten out when applied to a flat surface.
Yes, StarBond EM2000 both applies and dries clear. It can also be painted or treated with varnish or polish after it dries so it can blend in perfectly with its surroundings.
Never put StarBond EM2000 in your regular household or work waste as even an empty bottle can be harmful to the environment. Contact your local waste disposal management and follow their instructions for proper disposal methods.
