West System G/Flex 650
G/flex 650 has the ability to make structural bonds that can absorb the stresses of expansion, contraction, shock, and vibration. This epoxy is resilient and impact resistant. With a modulus of elasticity of 150,000 psi (WEST SYSTEM 105 Resin/205 Hardener has a modulus of elasticity of 450,000 psi), G/flex is more flexible and can deflect further before breaking than WEST SYSTEM 105/205, while being much stiffer than typical adhesive sealants.
G/flex has the ability to glue damp woods.
G/flex adheres tenaciously to difficult- to-glue hardwoods, both tropical and domestic varieties. This is important since many of the exotic and tropical species now being used to replace traditional woods present bonding challenges.
G/flex is ideal for bonding a variety of materials, including dissimilar ones. It has has a superior grip so that it can be used to bond to metals, plastics, glass, masonry, and fiberglass. This epoxy is ideal for repairs to aluminium boats and polyethylene and ABS canoes and kayaks. It can also be used to wet out and bond fiberglass tapes and fabrics.
G/flex is a simple two-part epoxy system. Resin and hardener are mixed in a 1-to-1 mix ratio by volume. It provides a relatively long open working time (up to approx 45 min in ideal situations), yet it cures quickly and can be used in cool temperatures. Because it is simple to mix and use, this 2-part epoxy is an excellent starting point for customers new to epoxy use.
