Devcon ... is my favourite but sadly I cannot get it in Latvia ... so I use Bison from local hardware shop.

I use 5 min for nearly everything if epoxy called for. The difference of 5 min to slow cure is minimal when you use a reputable brand. My Bison 5 min Epoxy is fine even in -10C and lower in use. OK - there's no way I would mix and apply in such temps ... it's just unworkable for any such two part. But once cured .. it survives excellently all temps I fly in.

If your epoxy is shattering ... then I suggest it's either faulty compound or the mix is unbalanced ... too much catalyst will create a brittle unreliable mix. Too much adhesive will just create a half cured mess, that takes forever to cure.
