Epoxy resin for skis and snowboard.
All-purpose Biobased Epoxy System
Sei Whale is a clear, all-purpose, epoxy system with high UV resistance.
All-purpose applications with variable working times for room temperature cure, with post-curing options. Good for hand lay-up, coating and filling.
Easy impregnation of reinforcements and two hardener options. Ideal system for transparent applications.
-Clear epoxy resin with U.V filter
-For laminations and coatings in fiber glass, carbon fiber…
-Sustainable resin (up to 25% from organic waste from manufacturing process)
-Mix proportion in weight: 100:50 (for Fast hardener) and 100:46(for Slow hardener)
-Mix proportion in volume: 2 to 1
-Working time: 14-17 min or 45-55min
Tip 1: Mix a pot of 200-300mL of epoxy at the time. Dont mix much more then this! It might self heat and harden in few minutes! Stir well for 2 min with your hand, scrape the edges. The mix can become a little warm, this is normal. Let it sit for 1-2 minutes for air to escape!
Tip 2: make sure you are protected with gloves as skin contact it the worst exposure.
Tip 3: Bio based epoxy can crystalize like honey! If any crystals are present in the Resin, please make a warm water bath (about 50C or above should do, in production the resin is heated to 100 degrees so no worries) and place the Resin container in the warm water and stir til crystals are gone. This is normal for some Resins. Let it cool down to room temperature before mixing with hardener!!!
- For best results, measure the two components by weight within 5% of the recommended mix ratio.
- Always mix product for at least two minutes, scraping the container to ensure complete mixing.
- Use products in a controlled environment. Avoid high humidity and cold temperatures.
- Amine blush, a by-product of the curing process, appears as a wax-like film cured epoxy and is more noticeable in cool, moist conditions. It can clog sandpaper and inhibit subsequent bonding. Blush is water-soluble and easily removed with clean water (not solvent) and an abrasive pad.
- For good adhesion, epoxy bonding surfaces should be clean, dry and sanded.
- If unfamiliar with the product, create smaller test samples before starting a larger scale project.
