Very strong after curing.
Support cap epoxy Glass fiber is a two-component epoxy system based on glass fiber. The A-component of this epoxy consists of a fiber-rich kneading mass and the B-component is a blue-colored liquid. Very strong and light after curing. The Epoxy is perfect for making support caps (+/- 3 mm thickness) but is also used to create a model or shape.
Note: To obtain a surface layer (surface aspect, chemical resistance), apply EPOPAST 402 to a gelcoat. It is always recommended to apply the laminating paste on a tacky but uncured gelcoat.
- Mixing ratio by weight: Kneading mass(A): Liquid(B) = 100:14 (14%)
- Processing time: 120 minutes
- Demould time at 25C: 24 hours
- Final hardness at 25°C: 7 days
- Density mixed: 0.72 g/cm³
- A-Component -RESIN EPOPAST 402: 0.68 g/cm³
- B-Component - HARDENER EPOPAST 400: 0.97 g/cm³
Take the desired amount of Kneading Mass and add the correct ratio of liquid (5% by weight). Now knead the two components well together until an even color and a homogeneous mass is created without lumps or lumps. Use gloves! Place the kneaded dough between foil (for example cling film) and roll out this mass with, for example, a rolling pin (do not use the roller in the kitchen afterwards!) until the desired thickness is reached. The foil ensures that the dough does not stick to the roller. Apply the kneading compound to your model/mold or knead your design. When processing, take the processing time/pot life into account and never create more than you can process in the indicated time.
Note: Epoxy bonds to fresh silicone. Use a release agent or foil between the silicone and the dough to prevent adhesion!
Direct contact with epoxy should always be avoided. See safety requirements!
The epoxy is supplied in a kit consisting of 10 kg of molding compound (A-comp.) and 1.4 kg of liquid (B-comp.). At a thickness of 3-5 mm, this is sufficient for an area of 150 cm x 150 cm. (length x WIDTH)
The kneaded epoxy is best stored in a closed container in a dry place between 6 - 28°C. Shelf life is at least 1 year.
Both the A and B components can cause hypersensitivity of the skin. Only use this product with proper protection: gloves, goggles and with adequate ventilation. Also read the safety sheet for specific information.
