Product Information:

BarrelBond is the best pen turner’s glue we’ve used – ever. The two-part epoxy gel formulation is easy to mix and use, and the five-minute open time is enough to glue up multiple tubes. What else? It is gap filling, waterproof, flexible, easy to trim, easy to sand, non-sagging, and has an unlimited shelf life. Our favorite features are the gap filling and flexibility, because when properly applied, these characteristics mean fewer pen blank “blowouts”


  • Easy to mix and use

  • Gap filling and flexible

    Comments about System Three BarrelBond 5 Minute Gel Glue 2-oz :

    All the different epoxies I've used smell. Because they are mixed and then applied, they are messy. Those are small trade-offs for a good permanent bond that this product provides. I use it on all my pens and other projects requiring a tube to be glued to a blank. It sets up in about 5 minutes which gives me time to get the tube positioned in the blank. It also gives me time to clean out any extra glue inside the tube if it got in. It is viscous enough to fill any voids which especially helps with the inlay pen blanks I've worked. I've turned blanks after letting them set for a few hours but prefer to give them a 24 hour drying time for maximum strength. Works great with no failures to date.

    For the odor, the mess, and the drying time, I found that CA works alot better for makinvg pens. It might work great in other aplications.

    Comments about System Three BarrelBond 5 Minute Gel Glue 2-oz :

    This is a great product. It works as it is described. The cap on the tubes tend to adhere to the tube and it is difficult to get off at times and makes a mess. A different container or applicator should be considered.

    Great epoxy!

    Pros

    • Dries Quickly
    • Easy Application
    • Very Adhesive

    Cons

    • Long Dry Time
    • Longer than 5 minutes

    Best Uses

    Comments about System Three BarrelBond 5 Minute Gel Glue 2-oz :

    I bought this epoxy after reading many favorable reviews on various turning forums. It works well and dries reasonably quickly. Its name, however, is a bit deceptive. 30 minute epoxy would be more accurate. Still, this is faster than most epoxies I've used in the past. I would definitely recommend it for pen turning.
