In my late teens, I built a moonshine still, where I used two part epoxy on some not so hot parts (hot parts were soft soldered).

Although heat exposure was below what the epoxy was rated for, hours of exposure to heat made the stuff brittle, and it loosened from the metal surfaces.

Conclusion: I would not use epoxy on anything more than luke-warm components.

About the still? Well, we made exellent rhum. However, it just wasn't worth all the time, once the thrill of operations wore off ;-) Also, once local law (= my mother) found out what was going on in the basement, suspence also ceased ;-)
