Ideal for permanent waterproof bonding of fiberglass, ceramics, metals, plastics and damp and difficult-to-bond woods, G/flex is more flexible than standard epoxies and polyester, but much stiffer than adhesive sealants. G/flex enables you to make structural bonds that absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration. It is ideal for bonding dissimilar materials. G/flex can be modified with West System fillers and additives, and can be used to wet out fiberglass tapes and fabrics. The 1:1 resin/hardener mixing ratio gives 46 minutes of working time at room temperature. Reaches initial cure in 7 to 10hrs. and full cure in 24hrs. Two one-gallon containers (1gal. Resin/1gal. Hardener) 650 G/flex Epoxy.
