Hi Myriam & HistoNetters

This is actually a very complicated question, 
depending on quite a lot of factors.  However, 
the one suggestion I would certainly make is to 
substitute BDMA for DMP-30 as the accelerator. 
It has a viscosity of 0.85 cP at 25°C compared to 
DMP-30 (20.50 cP).  If you are going to use 
Araldite, I recommend you consult Audrey 
Glauert's books.  I usually use Luft's NMA/DDSA 
formula, except with BDMA.

best regards,
Steven Slap
