Bucks Formula 50 Epoxy Resin with Hardener (24 hour cure time)

Very good for wetting out very lightweight glass fibre cloth on model aircraft.

The resin and hardener pack comes with 2 mixing pots and 2 spatula's. Spare hardener can also be ordered.

Note: We recommend the use of rollers for applying activated epoxy resin to Super or Ultra lightweight woven glass fibre cloth on model aircraft wings and fuselage to prevent dragging the glass fibre cloth. Depending on the quantity of the activated epoxy resin applied to glass fibre woven cloth with a roller, may need the surplus activated resin removed with absorbent paper (toilet tissue roll) to save weight of the model. In the pre-cured state of the activated resin the absorbent paper does not stick and can be peeled away from the model easily before the curing process. Remember surplus resin is only going to add weight to the model so must be removed and only leave enough of the activated epoxy resin to stick the woven glass fibre cloth to the model.

Low viscosity.

Easy measuring ratio.

    100 parts Resin to 40 parts Hardener (2.5 to 1)

Notes:

Take into consideration heat generation when mixing resin and hardener, once mixed put into a larger area this will prevent higher temperature build up and this will give you a longer pot life (working time). Never mix large quantity of resin and hardener.
