Just one of the “recipes” that I mix up in my glassing workshop.
– Resin 250 ml
– 6 mm Chop Strand 2 cups
– Colloidal Silica 2 cups
– …and don’t forget the catalyst 5 ml !!
Then up to the boat, I have about 15 to 20 mins before it “kicks”, that is,
starts to harden. As soon as it kicks it goes off very quickly, as it
produces its own heat thereby accelerating the process. Quickly up the
ladder and into the boat.
I have about 5 or 6 different recipes depending on what the intended use of
the “mix” is for. The one above is mainly for bonding and filleting.
