Finally bought a new pack of JB, seems to mix up darker grey than the old stuff from a year or two ago- anyone else noticed this?
Seems fine otherwise

It's been awhile using jbweld but isn't it black filler and white hardner. Depending on the mixed ratio your color will vary no?

It's a 1:1 mix, but my previous 2 year old stuff seemed somewhat lighter when mixed

Still looks the same to me. Maybe I just haven't got any of this new stuff if they did change it?

The regular JB Weld was always mixed up dark & JB Kwik mixes up a light gray.

Dark gray is the new formulation, this color was chosen so as to scare people only slightly.

A Dark "Slate Grey" color is wjat the final outcome should be after mixing the black epoxy with the white-ish hardener. The lighter frey color it is the faster it will setup which is an indication that you used too much hardener.
