Vogel, I'll be using clamps to hopefully take most of the stress...here's a QuikSteel website for some info:
Here are some excerpts, doesn't really talk about elasticity, but it does talk about strength and hardness:
"STRONG: There are two ways strength is measured. One is on the horizontal plane -- this is called "shear strength" -- and the other is on the vertical plane and is called "tensile strength."
Shear strength -- When cured (one-hour drying time) QUIKSTEEL has a shear strength of 740 pounds per square inch. This means that when two pieces of material are bonded together with a one-inch bond of QUIKSTEEL, it would take a pressure greater than 740 pounds to break the bond. That would be the equivalent to the weight of four to five strong men. For comparison, pine lumber has a shear strength of 400 pounds per square inch. QUIKSTEEL is almost twice as strong as pine.
Tensile strength -- QUIKSTEEL has as tensile strength of 6,200 pounds per square inch. This would mean that a piece of QUIKSTEEL one-inch in diameter could lift the weight of three automobiles.
HARD: QUIKSTEEL is a very hard material. Technically it is rated at D-87. "D" is the highest hardness rating in the Shore rating system. QUIKSTEEL, when cured, can be compared to ABS plastic (material used to manufacture automobiles) or the fiber epoxy wings on the B2 bomber.
When cured, QUIKSTEEL, can be processed in any way that you can process steel or wood. It can be turned on a lathe, machined, drilled, tapped, milled, sanded, sawed, routed, primed, and painted."
What do you think?
