Epiglass Hardeners

The diversified uses for epoxy resin means no single hardener can satisfy all requirements. Epiglass has a simple hardener range to accommodate all uses. The Standard Hardener (HT9002) is the most widely used and is supplied with Epiglass Epoxy Resin as a standard pack. It is suitable for larger jobs like laminating or sheathing or when a longer working time is needed. The Fast Hardener (HT9001) has been formulated to accommodate colder climates or for users that require a faster curing system. Fast Hardener is especially suitable for smaller jobs such as gluing when a short working time is needed.

Epiglass Extenders

Glue Powder (HT110) - produces a high strength epoxy glue when mixed with the Epiglass resin mix. The viscosity of the glue can be varied by the volume of Glue Powder added. Glue Powder does not increase the volume of the resin mix. It should also be added to filling and fairing mixtures to improve trowel!ing and feathering properties and to prevent sagging.                                                                                                                                                        Wood Fibers (HT220) - A white cellulose fiber designed for adding to glue mixes when bonding wood and especially for fillet bonding.                                                                                                                                     Lightweight Pairing Powder (HT330) - Made from microballoons which are hollow, Reddish brown phenolic spheres with extremely low density. They produce a lightweight fairing compound for use above the waterline with easy sanding Properties. Glue Powder should also be used in a fairing filler mix to prevent sagging in areas of high build and improve application proper ties. Lightweight Fairing Powder can also be added to glue mixes to give a color to match the darker wood types on interiors.                                                                                                                                 Filler Powder (HT440) - Hollow glass spheres have been specially developed to produce a lightweight, light colored, low density filling material. An extremely low moisture uptake make it ideal for above or below the waterline Filler Powder may also be used for fairing large areas offering economies over the Lightweight Fairing Powder at a slight penalty in weight and sandability. The addition of Glue Powder improves sag resistance and application properties.
