    how is ordinary epoxy (A + B) adhesive differed to steel epoxy (A + B) adhesive in so far as steel is concerned?

    Uh ... one has steel and the other doesn't?

    I was quite surprised when I found out that there even IS such a thing as steel epoxy but I had been using one for years called "JB Weld". I found out because I used it to glue a magnet to a flashlight and damned if it didn't flow along the magnet just as thought it was weakly ferrous, so I checked the ingredients and yep, it has steel in it. Regular old clear epoxies don't.
