Epoxy User Manual & Product Guide

The marine epoxy revolution began with Gougeon Brothers in 1969. It was further fueled by the WEST SYSTEM Technical Manual, originally published in 1973. This popular epoxy user manual was the catalyst for the success of WEST SYSTEM Epoxy. It allowed us to go beyond providing customers with a strong line of epoxy products and give them the type of solid, reliable information they needed to get great results with these marine-grade epoxies. Today, it’s called the WEST SYSTEM User Manual & Product Guide.

The focus of the User Manual & Product Guide is using WEST SYSTEM Epoxy safely and effectively. Over the decades, it has evolved into a 41-page, full-color publication. It thoroughly covers the basics of epoxy chemistry, all WEST SYSTEM products, epoxy handling, and basic epoxy techniques. It also features a handy Problem Solver that addresses common concerns with curing, bonding, sanding, coating, exotherm, and proper storage of epoxy resins and hardeners.

We frequently update this publication to give you easy access to the latest information on using epoxy for construction and repair.

Clear instructions, color photographs, and product selection guides round out this indispensable 41-page manual. Besides the free downloadable PDF version above, you can pick up the printed version at no charge through your local WEST SYSTEM Epoxy dealer, or order your free copy directly from us at 866-937-8797.
