Clear, fast curing, two-component, high strength epoxy adhesive resistant to fuels, solvents and vibration; easily sandable when fully cured. Will not embrittle with age. Bonds wood, fiberglass, carbon composites, aluminum, copper, steel, brass, concrete, glass, hard plastics, polystyrene foam, etc.
To remove excess uncured adhesive: cloth or paper towel moistened with denatured alcohol.
Adhesive thinning: thinner for epoxy varnishes S6300 (the use of thinners increases the curing time and reduces the final strength of the joint – if you need a “thinner” epoxy, use a laminating or finishing epoxy with a lower viscosity).
Use as putty, suitable fillers: microballoons, talc, baby backfill, diatomaceous earth, fine balsa or lime sawdust, chopped fibreglass. Caution – the addition of filler may reduce working time by up to 25% and (depending on the type and amount of filler used) may reduce the strength of the joint.
Suitable for bonding: soft and hard wood, chipboard, plywood, metals, polystyrene foam, ceramics, porcelain, glass and carbon laminates, glass and carbon fabrics and fibres.
Not suitable for gluing: soft and flexible plastics (including EPP and EPO), polyethylene, Teflon.
Storage: in a tightly sealed container, in a cool, dry and dark place (at a temperature of 13°C to 25°C). Do not expose to temperatures below 10°C. Take care not to confuse the resin and hardener caps – even a small amount of hardener can degrade large quantities of resin.
Durability: Under proper storage conditions, we guarantee a shelf life of 1 year while maintaining the above product properties. Practical experience shows that epoxy resins based on bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin maintain their excellent properties for many years when stored correctly (see also Note 2) – if you buy a pack of adhesive appropriate to your consumption, you do not have to “worry” about its lifetime at all.
Note 1: The curing of the adhesive depends mainly on the ambient temperature; if you mix larger amounts of epoxy at once (typically more than 20-30 g), it can cure much faster – to maintain a longer working time, the adhesive needs to be cooled, e.g. in a water bath. This is because heat is released when the resin and hardener react, and also because the resin cures faster at higher temperatures. And since the mass of the resin (and therefore the amount of heat generated) increases faster than the size of the external surface from which heat is dissipated to the surroundings as the volume increases, more resin is heated and cured faster. Don’t you believe it? Believe it! A 1 cm cube has a volume of 1 cm3 and a surface area of 6 cm2 – a 6:1 ratio, while a 2 cm cube has a volume of 8 cm3 and a surface area of 24 cm2 – a ratio of only 3:1!
Note 2: Initially clear and quite flowable epoxy resins based on bisphenol A and epichlorohydrin can sometimes thicken (“curdle” like honey bees) and lose transparency – this is due to exposure to low temperatures, humidity or time. By gently heating in hot water (60-70°C) for a few minutes until the resin becomes clear again in its entire volume, you will get the resin “like new” again, with its original properties.
