Cure Speed 

This product provides fast cure and property development at ambient and low temperatures without accelerators and allows for quick return to service.  Typical pot-life on this item is roughly 45-50 minutes based on mass and temperature.  Thin film set time (3mil. film) is roughly 5 hours at 78F.  Fast cure and green time while exhibiting low exothermic temperatures (120C.) makes this product ideal for all applications.  Full cure is 24 hours at normal conditions.

This product cures to a brilliant high gloss finish.  The finished product will be very rigid, smooth, clear, and display a brilliant high gloss finish similar to glass. 

Mixing, Storage, and Application

Mix this resin 1:1 by volume.  If mixing by weight, mix 100 parts of resin into 83 parts of hardener.  When mixing this product, make sure to use a round cup & mix thoroughly scraping all sides and bottom of mixing container.  Improperly mixed epoxy can create a major headache.  Remember that thermoset plastics are temperature sensitive.  Cold weather slows the cure process down, whereas heat speeds curing up.  Always try to mix chemicals at room temperature.  For best results, try pouring epoxy into hardener.  Pour along the side of the container to help alleviate air entrapment.  Mix for at least 3-5 minutes in a in a round motion until chemical are clear and free of striations.  Allow the mixed components to stand in your mixed cup for at least 5 minutes.  This allows for bubbles to rise to the surface.  Small castings and potting units may take longer to cure than larger items.    

This chemical needs to be stored in a dry, safe, temperature controlled environment.  Always keep the lids tightly sealed when not in use.  Remember, oxygen and moisture oxidize and can rapidly degrade the epoxy and hardener.  Moisture is also a potential issue.  Always keep the bottles sealed when not in use.  

When applying this product, use gloves, goggles, and proper safety equipment.  Please refer to the safety data sheet before using any of our epoxy products.
