Epoxy brands can vary widely in their formulations, quality of raw materials and their suitability for marine environments. Defining an epoxy’s performance criteria, and designing a formula to meet those criteria requires good chemistry, rigorous test programs, skillful shop work and direct experience with today’s high performance boats and other composite structures.
WEST SYSTEM resin and hardener formulas, ingredients and combinations are tested to compare fatigue strength, compression strength, heat distortion temperature and peak exotherm. Thorough testing such as this, is invaluable in achieving the proper balance of properties required for a versatile, high-quality marine epoxy.
Professional fabricators can be confident of consistent, repeatable results in performance and handling characteristics that will ensure high quality parts and higher production rates, while the easily used chemistry set gives the amateur builder the ability to successfully tailor the handling characterisitcs and the physical properties of the cured epoxy to suit the working conditions, and the coating or bonding requirements, for their specific projects.
