An easy-to-use, 2-part resin/hardener system for quick repairs, tooling, and general bonding. May be used in spot applications to hold parts in position while standard epoxy bonds cure. Bonds to wood, fiberglass, and metal. Not recommended for long-term bonds subject to high loads or moisture. This system is simple to use with its 1:1 mix ratio by volume and can be modified with WEST SYSTEM® fillers.
WEST SYSTEM® Epoxy has been used to reliably build and repair boats for over thirty-five years. But its practical uses are not limited to boats or the marine industry. The techniques used to restore an aging runabout, repair a delaminated fiberglass deck or build a stripper canoe are the same techniques used to restore historic buildings, repair damaged vehicles, and build weatherproof outdoor furniture. If you’ve used epoxy on a boat repair or building project, it’s likely you’ve found other uses for it around your house or shop. We have put together a manual of some of the more common non-marine uses of epoxy.
Modifying with fillers and additives makes WEST SYSTEM epoxy extremely versatile for a wide variety of bonding and coating applications. Epoxy can be thickened to the ideal consistency needed for a particular job. Epoxy thickened with adhesive (high-density) fillers strengthens structural bonds, bridges gaps, and fills voids. Epoxy thickened with fairing (low-density) fillers is easily sanded and shaped after it cures.
