It said it was low fired to 1200F degrees to be hardened. The Epoxy's do not need to get that hot, at lest not to my understanding. I think they behave much more like a super glue than a clay.

That is not true. Gold is neither necessary nor sufficient. Polymerization of the sap has nothing to do with gold.
