BOATCRAFT CONTRACT EPOXY RESIN

 

 

BoatCraft Pacific Contract Epoxy Resin is an economical yet user friendly epoxy resin manufactured for professional boatbuilders and repairers.  Its 5:1 ratio matches industry standard systems, but it is advanced on many other epoxies on the market by using technology developed for our Bote-Cote retail systems.  Contract Epoxy Resin is free of amine blush provided the temperature exceeds 18 deg C and humidity does not exceed 60%.  Other features are:
 

        thixotropic formulations available to control runs and sags

 

        minimum irritation ingredients

 

        reactive diluents available for improved wetting and adhesion

 

        range of custom formulated fillers and raw materials available

 

        fast, standard, and slow grades, plus accelerators, are available to adjust cure rates

 

        production dispensers are available, making dispensing of epoxy components a simple and accurate procedure
