G/flex 650 is part of the WEST SYSTEM® range of epoxy products. While G/flex offers physical properties and applications that are that are different from WEST SYSTEM 105 resin-based systems, they share the same high standards for performance and reliability.
G/flex 650 is the result of experimentation to develop a toughened epoxy that was simple to use, viscous enough not to drain out of a joint, and would adhere tenaciously to a variety of materials under difficult conditions.
This advanced formula is resilient enough to absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration. G/flex offers a superior grip to aluminium and other metals, plastics, fibreglass, ceramic, masonry, glass, damp wood, difficult-to-bond wood species and dissimilar materials.
G/flex 650 is a two-part system with a user-friendly 1:1 mix ratio that can be used as a coating or modified with WEST SYSTEM fillers and additives, and used to wet-out fibreglass tapes and fabrics. Pot life is 40 minutes at 25oC, and G/flex 650 reaches an initial cure in 7-10 hours and full cure in 24 hours.
Sample projects include:
- repairing leaks
- repairs to polyethylene and ABS canoes & kayaks, wooden boats
- repairs to household and sporting equipment
G/flex 650 is available, throughout Australia from leading marine outlets, in easy-to-dispense squeeze bottles in 250ml and 1 litre packs.
WEST SYSTEM is the world’s leading brand of marine epoxy, created by Gougeon Brothers, who understand the engineering and chemistry required to formulate epoxies for high-performance composite structures. It requires thorough research, rigorous test programs, and direct experience with today’s high-performance boats and other engineered structures.
This experience and dedication to performance has given WEST SYSTEM a level of quality that sets it apart from other brands of epoxy.
