We have chemicals here that can dissolve any glue you can think of, but they are specific to the glues. Epoxy is very susceptible to formic acid for example.

It all depends on the chemicals.
Some 2K epoxies are reall good in this department but no matter what you try you temp limit will be at around 100° C before the stuff softens.
If you want it for repairs replace it instead, if you want to attach something use metal clamps designed for the purpose.
Once glass is broken there is no such thing as an easy repair that last to chemicals and high temps.

It depends on the chemicals, but you're probably looking at a two-part epoxy resin. It won't be pretty.
