G/flex 650 is a toughened, versatile, liquid epoxy resin for permanent bonding of fiberglass, ceramics, metals, plastics and damp and difficult-to-bond woods. With a modulus of elasticity of 150,000 PSI, it is a bit more flexible than standard epoxies and polyester, but much stiffer than adhesive sealants. This gives G/flex 650 the ability to make structural bonds that can absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration. It is ideal for bonding dissimilar materials. It can be modified with WEST SYSTEM fillers and additives, and used to wet-out fiberglass tapes and fabrics. Mixed at a 1:1 ratio, G/flex 650 gives you 75 minutes of working time at room temperature. It reaches an initial cure in 7 to 10 hrs and full cure in 24 hrs. 650 G/flex Resins should be paired with comparable size 650 G/flex Hardeners. Includes one gallon of resin and one gallon of hardener.
