    Do you a link to it? Nothing came up with Google or Bing searches, at least with that spelling.. -Al

    Yep, that's the stuff I was referring to. Most of the information I find on it seems it's mostly used in the aviation industry.

    I did find this Q/A, though, which suggests it wouldn't be suitable for bedding.

    Q: How much heat will Metlweld epoxy adhesive take?

    A: MetlWeld has a maximum service temperature of 125F. At this temperature, the cured epoxy will start to soften but will remain highly crosslinked.

    When evaluating any material for use as a bedding product, the shrinkage during curing is the first thing to consider. In general, the slower the cure time the less the shrinkage. Not always , but it's a good place to start.

    Good shootin'. -Al
