The Thin Epoxy Resin is a high quality resin system which works well for lamination of Fiberglass, Carbon Fiber or Kevlar. This epoxy has a syrup like consistency and will wet-out materials very quickly. This makes it very easy to work with. The epoxy is low odor. In addition to lamination of materials this epoxy also works very well as a sealer for porous materials such as wood, because of its ability to easily penetrate the materials. Resin viscosity: 600 cps.
This resin uses a 3:1 hardener. Mixing 3 parts epoxy to 1 part hardener will give you the appropriate final mixture.
This is considered to be a medium hardener, Our 2:1 epoxy will cure slower and our 4:1 hardener epoxies will cure much faster. However this 3:1 hardener will provide you with the best of both worlds.

**** Cold Weather Warning ****
If your epoxy arrives cold during shipment is must be allowed to acclimate to at least 75° F before using. Mixing this product below 75°F will increase the potential for under-mixed epoxy which will create wet or sticky areas on your surface. Cold temperatures will also trap more very tiny air bubbles during the mixing which cannot always be removed with the torch/heat gun. In addition applying the mixed epoxy in temps below 70° F will drastically extend cure times. To warm the epoxy quickly we recommend using either a heat lamp, an electric heater or placing the closed bottles of epoxy in a tub of warm water for 30 minutes. Getting the epoxy too hot will result in a faster reaction time, so pay careful attention to what you're doing.
