Selecting materials for wrapping/covering existing parts in Aluminized Fiberglass just got easier with our pre-made kit. This kit includes all of the materials you need to cover your parts in Silver Aluminized Fiberglass to give them that desired look. You can also use this kit to produce parts entirely from fiberglass as well. You will receive the following materials with the kit. We have 3 different kit sizes that will fit your needs. This Aluminized Fiberglass is a little stiffer of a material so it will have a harder time wrapping around very complex curves. Silver Aluminized Fiberglass is referred to by many as "silver carbon fiber". Parts produced as silver carbon fiber are actually made from this aluminized fiberglass material.
All of these items in the kit are available for purchase individually in our store. If you run out of a certain material we can sell any single item by itself.
This resin uses a 2:1 hardener. Mixing 2 parts epoxy to 1 part hardener will give you the appropriate final mixture.
The 2:1 hardener has a pot life of 35-40 minutes at 80° F, set time of 5-6 hours and a drying time of 24-48 hours. This epoxy is NON-blushing.
This is considered to be a slow hardener, Our 3:1 and 4:1 hardener epoxies will cure much faster. However this 2:1 hardener will provide you with the maximum working time possible and should not be used in temps under 70° F unless a very long curing time is needed. Slow hardener should be used at temperatures above 80° F for optimal overnight curing.
