Swifty thread finish is a structural adhesive and has extremely low viscosity.

If you have any of the long curing epoxies but find that they are a bit viscous - or thick - you can heat them up and they will become as liquid as water.
It is not a good idea to do this with a 5 or 10 minute epoxy, because the heat shortens the cure time to nearly 0.

However, if you have a 30 or 60 minute epoxy, the added heat will shorten the cure to 5-15 minutes which is fine for many projects.

Take care

It's primarily aimed at the marine market but I've used it for all kinds of projects where some flexibility is required.
