EXCELLENT ADHESION to hard-to bond woods. This toughened, versatile liquid epoxy for permanent waterproof bonding of fiberglass, ceramics, metals, plastics, damp and difficult-to-bond woods. A little more flexible than standard epoxies and polyester, but much stiffer than adhesive sealants. Makes structural bonds that may absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock, and vibration.
IDEAL FOR BONDING dissimilar materials. It may be modified with WEST SYSTEM fillers and additives and used to wet-out fiberglass tapes and fabrics. Mixed at a 1:1 ratio, this 2-part epoxy offers you 46 minutes of pot life at 72°F and an open (working) time of 60-75 minutes. It reaches an initial cure in 3 to 4 hrs and a workable cure in 7-10 hours.
OFFERS GREATER FLEXIBILITY than traditional epoxies or polyester resins. Yet it’s much stiffer than adhesive sealants. With a modulus of elasticity of 150,000 PSI, this epoxy bonds tenaciously to a metals, plastics, glass, masonry, and fiberglass. Can be used to wet out and bond fiberglass tapes and fabrics.
MAKES STRUCTURAL BONDS that may absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock, and vibration. G/flex can be utilized on damp or wet surfaces, or even underwater when applied with specific techniques. Perfect for repairs to aluminum and boats and canoes or kayaks made of polyethylene or ABS.
EASILY MODIFIED with WEST SYSTEM Fillers, Additives, and Pigments to fit the job at hand. Adding G/flex to other WEST SYSTEM epoxies can support their toughness and flexibility. Not intended for clear coating.
