ATLANTA (April 14, 2015) – For the first time in its 46-year history, J-B Weld, the global leader in consumer epoxy adhesives, is offering direct-to-consumer sales. The new JBWeld.com offers the company’s most complete catalog of over 30 products—in different sizes—in one convenient location.
“In its first 40 years, J-B Weld became a household name with six core products offering the strongest bond available for a variety of auto and DIY projects,” said Jan Sorensen, executive vice president of sales and marketing at J-B Weld. “In the last six years, that product lineup has expanded to over 30 products in various sizes, including putty sticks, specialty adhesives and our new syringe applicators. Online sales are the next logical step in the evolution of this DIY and automotive enthusiast brand.”
Originally designed for the aftermarket auto repair industry, J-B Weld’s twin tube products provided an alternative in applications where traditional welding was not practical or possible. Since then, J-B Weld has become a staple in the toolboxes of auto mechanics, plumbers and other professionals. But the J-B Weld brand has also inspired generations of DIY’ers.
“As our customers wrote to us about the hundreds, sometimes even thousands of dollars they saved repairing projects around the home, in the garage, on the farm or at the marina, we realized there was an opportunity to develop products for use on wood, plastics, glass, metal and many other surfaces,” said Sorensen. “Our fans now have quick and convenient access to our entire product line for their upcoming projects, from any digital device.”
In addition to new shopping features, DIYers and professionals can share innovative repair ideas, post questions for other enthusiasts or connect with an expert at J-B Weld for questions about product specifications and usage.
J-B Weld, the leader in consumer epoxy adhesives, is based in Sulphur Springs, Texas. The family of J-B Weld products includes J-B Weld, J-B Kwik, SteelStick, WaterWeld, KwikWood, WoodWeld, MarineWeld, Perm-O-Seal, Perma-Lock, SuperWeld, ClearWeld, PlasticWeld, Plastic Bonder and an exiting new program of J-B Weld Gasket Maker Silicone Sealants and adhesives.
