Product Description

Ecoflex™ 5

Ecoflex™ rubbers are platinum-catalyzed silicones that are versatile and easy to use. Ecoflex™ rubbers are mixed 1A:1B by weight or volume and cured at room temperature with negligible shrinkage.  Low viscosity ensures easy mixing and de-airing. Dispense using our convenient dispensing cartridges. Cured rubber is very soft, very strong and very “stretchy”, stretching many times its original size without tearing and will rebound to its original form without distortion.

Epsilon™ PRO

Epsilon™ PRO is a thixotropic epoxy coating that self-thickens for brushing onto a variety of surfaces.  Compared to original Epsilon™, Epsilon™ PRO offers a longer working time and cured epoxy is semi-rigid, offering better impact resistance.  Mix ratio for Epsilon™ PRO is 2A:1B by volume (100A:44B by weight).  A gram scale is not needed to use this product.

Applied in thin layers, mixed material holds a vertical surface without sagging or slumping. Material wets out uniformly over different surfaces.  Pot life is 22 minutes, with a re-coat time of 3 hours.  All layers should be allowed to cure for 16 hours at 73° F / 23° C and can be accelerated with mild heat.  Epsilon™ PRO is clear and can be easily colored using Ignite™ or UVO™ colorants.  Cured coating has a gloss finish and can be sanded, primed and painted.

Applications: Epsilon™ PRO is suitable for use as a protective, impact resistant coating for EPS or polyurethane foam. It can also be applied to plaster, concrete, wood and fabrics. This product is not sensitive to moisture / humidity and contains no VOC’s.

EpoxAcoat™ WHITE

EpoxAcoat™ RED, EpoxAcoat™ GREY and EpoxAcoat™ WHITE are thixotropic epoxy gel coats which are widely used for hand laminating and tooling applications. They are tough and strong surface coat resins which cure at room temperature and offer exceptional abrasion resistance. For high temperature applications (to 284°F / 140°C) use EpoxAcoat HT™ (see separate technical bulletin).

EpoxAcoat™ RED, EpoxAcoat™ GREY and EpoxAcoat™ WHITE are easy to use, wet out well over a variety of surfaces and will coat vertical surfaces without sagging. After the epoxy becomes “tacky-hard” at room temperature, fiberglass cloth is laminated behind the surface coat using Free Form™ AIR putty or EpoxAmite™ Laminating Epoxy to produce strong, lightweight tools that have excellent dimensional stability and surface finish. Cured surface machines precisely without chipping. Applications include precision tooling, master and pattern making, core boxes and fixtures.
