For the first time ever, WEST SYSTEM is offering its versatile 655-8 G/Flex Thickened Epoxy Adhesive in an 8-oz size without "kit"packaging.
This toughened, versatile epoxy is conveniently prethickened for permanent waterproof bonding of plastic, fiberglass, ceramics, metals, damp and difficult-to-bond woods. With a modulus of elasticity of 150,000 PSI, it is a bit more flexible than standard epoxies and polyester, but much stiffer than adhesive sealants. This gives G/flex 655 the ability to make structural bonds that can absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration. It is ideal for bonding dissimilar materials. Mixed at a 1:1 ratio, G/flex 655 gives you 45 minutes of working time at room temperature. It reaches an initial cure in 7 to 10 hrs and full cure in 24 hrs.
Until now, G/flex 655 8oz squeeze tubes have been packaged as part of the 655-K G/flex Plastic Boat Repair Kit. While this convenient kit is remains widely available through WEST SYSTEM dealers, we have come to recognize that the versatility of this epoxy extends far beyond the limits of plastic boat repair. Thanks to popular customer demand, we're now offering G/flex 655 tubes in an 8 oz size in standalone packaging. Look for it at the WEST SYSTEM dealer nearest you.
