Has anyone used JB Weld to glue a splinter bowl back in? The medical glue is hard to get and JB is supposed to be pretty heat resistant. Not sure if there are any real dangers?
Temperature tolerance measures whether the glue will fail and does not reflect off-gassing. I don't know whether medical grade glues are tested for off-gassing as they are heated but I would guess they are not. Here's a summary of the difference between medical and non-medical grades:
Adhesives are vital and ever-expanding in the medical device manufacturing industry. Cyanoacrylate adhesives, commonly known as "super glues", allow for the construction of precision equipment and medical devices that can be lifesaving for many patients. Medical devices are used in the most...
The bottom line is that for our purposes, I don't see any difference between medical and non-medical glues. I used a non-medical glue to fix my Splinter. Your tolerance of risk might be different.
