I was surprised earlier this year when that mantra didn't work for me upon doing a splint on a leg (arm?) that broke on a frame for backyard umbrella over a picnic patio table. The JB Weld epoxy worked fine, but the substrate (painted or maybe powder coated aluminum) didn't cooperate and it delaminated.
