JB Weld In white?

Does anybody know of an epoxy similar to the original JB Weld but dries in white? I use this stuff extensively for repairing window screen frames. Because of the gray color I must paint the frame on each repair. A white epoxy of the same properties in white would save me a lot of time.

I've never seen a white epoxy putty. They've always had two colors so you can see when you have it thoroughly mixed and end up with some shade of blue, pink or gray.

A quick search for white JB Weld epoxy seemed to have a few products easily available. Apparently not the properties you are looking for??

JB Waterweld is white, but it's not bright white. By the time you are done kneading it, it's usually kind of a dirty white probably partly from grime off your hands.

Other than the cost, this will do the job. A little bit of over kill. Thanks Bud.

Xslpr, that may actually be an advantage.

JB Weld has a Marine Weld. Another brand is Marine Tex. Both are thick paste epoxy and bright white.
