105 Epoxy Resin:
The key component in a wide variety
of boatbuilding, restoration, and repair projects
105 Resin is the base material of
the WEST SYSTEM family of products, on which all of the WEST SYSTEM compounds
are built. The resin is a clear, light amber, low-viscosity liquid epoxy resin.
Formulated for use with WEST SYSTEM hardeners, it can be cured in a wide
temperature range to form a high-strength solid with excellent moisture resistance.
It is designed specifically to wet out and bond with wood fiber, fiberglass,
reinforcing fabrics and a variety of metals. An excellent adhesive, 105 will
bridge gaps and fill voids when modified with WEST SYSTEM fillers and can be
sanded and shaped when cured. With roller applications, it has excellent
thin-film characteristics to flow out and self-level without
"fisheyeing." The resin cures clear so that you can achieve a natural
finish when coating with varnish. It has a relatively high flash point and no
strong solvent odor, making it safer to work with than polyesters.
