Thixotropic epoxy gel coats which are widely used for hand laminating/tooling applications. They are tough and strong surface coat resins which cure at room temperature and offer exceptional abrasion resistance. EpoxAcoat® RED and EpoxAcoat® GREY are easy to use, wet out well over a variety of surfaces and will coat vertical surfaces without sagging.
Fiberglass cloth is laminated behind the EpoxAcoat® surface coat using EpoxAmite® Laminating Epoxy to produce strong, lightweight tools that have excellent dimensional stability and surface finish. Free Form AIR® Epoxy Putty can also be used in conjunction with EpoxAcoat® and EpoxAmite® to produce tooling to be used in hand lay up or vacuum bagging composite parts.
EpoxAcoat® produces a rigid and paintable surface for making rigid Masters, Patterns, and Props that are dimensionally stable. EpoxAcoat® RED or GRAY Surface Coat Epoxy can be laminated using layers of EpoxAmite® Laminating Epoxy and fiberglass, Kevlar, or Carbon Fiber.
EpoxAcoat® HT is a slightly thixotropic epoxy gel coat that offers high heat resistance (284°F / 140°C after Post Curing).
