Ferropre vs Deks 2 Part Epoxy

Ferropre v Deks Duobond. Which is better?

Ferropre is a product made by Henkel. Deks is a cheaper alternative. From experience, we've found the Deks to be softer and not stick as well as genuine Ferropre to many surfaces. Ferropre tends to harden to a better finish as well. That's not to say there isn't a place for Deks Duobond, but in 20+ years of use, when we have a choice, it's always Ferropre.
