WEST SYSTEM Specialty Epoxies are cure-compatible with each other, and also with the 105 System. If you wish to blend one with another, first mix on ratio the resin and hardener from one of our specialty epoxies, then add it to mixed on-ratio resin and hardener from another. For example, to speed the cure of 105/205 you may mix a batch of this at the correct (5:1 – one pump each with our calibrated mini pumps) then blend with mixed 1:1 ratio G/5 Five-Minute Adhesive or G/flex Epoxy.
