WEST SYSTEM is offering its versatile 655-8 G/Flex Thickened Epoxy Adhesive in an 2 quart size without "kit"packaging.
This toughened, versatile epoxy is conveniently pre-thickened for permanent waterproof bonding of plastic, fiberglass, ceramics, and metals, damp and difficult-to-bond woods. With a modulus of elasticity of 150,000 PSI, it is a bit more flexible than standard epoxies and polyester, but much stiffer than adhesive sealants. This gives G/flex 655 the ability to make structural bonds that can absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration. It is ideal for bonding dissimilar materials. Mixed at a 1:1 ratio, G/flex 655 gives you 45 minutes of working time at room temperature. It reaches an initial cure in 7 to 10 hrs and full cure in 24 hrs.
Until now, G/flex 655 pre-thickened epoxy has been packaged as part of the 655-K G/flex Plastic Boat Repair Kit. While this convenient kit is remains widely available through WEST SYSTEM dealers, we have come to recognize that the versatility of this epoxy extends far beyond the limits of plastic boat repair. Thanks to popular customer demand, we're now offering G/flex 655 in an 64oz size in standalone packaging.
