Cool I Chipped The Edge Of Glass Cooktop

I chipped the edge of a black countertop range that is fixed to the granite countertop with adhesive. A new top will cost $251.75 plus shipping and it's such a small area that it's not worth a new top. Would anyone happen to know if there is a black epoxy or mastic that will harden that I can use for repair?

So the piece is gone, you're looking to build up what's there as opposed to gluing the chip back on?

JB Weld (2 part epoxy, you can even get at an auto store) would probably be perfect for this. Tape around the area first so you dont get epoxy into an are you dont need to. After the epoxy hardens, sand it down to match the area, then paint it to match.. That's what I would do..

Actually, it sort of crushed the area some fibers are showing. There is no chip to adhere back on. Someone said that the heat resistant engine black epoxy is one thing top possibly use. The damage is to the edge and nowhere near a burner and the subsequent heat it'd give off. So yes, I want to build up the area that is chipped/crushed. Some of the ceramic is as I said crushed so most likely it'd have to be removed prior to any "epoxy."

JB Weld has black epoxy so perhaps that'll work??

I've only seen the black / grey mix which usually turns out like a dark grey but if they have black, even better. It's pretty heat resistant, I've used it on hot engines, just not sure what the limit is..

I doubt heat would be an issue with JB Weld especially at the edge of the cook top. My concern would be getting the repair formed/sanded and painted where it didn't look like a repair. The only JB Weld I've used is the white/black that turns grey when you mix it. They do have a couple of other products but I haven't used them.
