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.
