Does anyone out there have first-hand experience with HYSOL? If so,
list your likes and dislikes.
It's supposed to be thixotropic but once mixed it runs pretty well or
pretty badly, depending on your point of view. The mix ratio given a
fairly flexible set. I use slightly more curative to get it more
rigid. It doesn't get brittle like some epoxiys, and it doesn't seem
to be quite as strong. For all that it's plenty strong enough. I
used it on a rocket that has been launched nearly a dozen times on G,
H, and I motors. The epoxy hasn't failed. Body tube did, though.

we use Hysol brand adhesives extensively in the aircraft buisness.
Hysol is a brand name, but generally when one asks for some Hysol in
our unit (F16 fighter unit) we assume they are looking for the 2 part
thick opaque paste and dark brown catalyst type that all yu have to do
is a dab of each and stick the parts together. It is used extensively
in pl;ace of rivets in a lot of areas in an F16, such as holding studs
and brackets in place. The entire line of Hysol products is terrific
and aerospace rated. Really hard to beat...On Fri, 20 Dec 1996

I got my Hysol (EA 9309NA) from E.V. Roberts in Culver City, CA. I don't
remember the phone number, sorry. It is great stuff, very strong bond &
excellent heat resistance. It is a 2 part mixture by weight 100:23
years ago, and as I recall it was around $60.00 for their quart system.
lasts a long time though.
