Resin Filleting, Laminating and Gluing Resin F.L.A.G. Resin is a “medium” body resin specifically designed to perform as an adhesive and structural laminating foundation. The medium viscosity allows for the incorporation of fillers when fairing putties, gluing slurries and filleting systems are required. F.L.A.G. is more reactive than our Low Viscosity Resin when mixed with Medium Hardener. This keeps fillets and fairing from slumping. F.L.A.G Resin is next day sand able when cured at 60 degrees F. and higher with Medium Hardener. F.L.A.G Resin may be used with all MAS Hardeners, however, for filled applications we recommend Medium Hardener
FLAG resin like all our other resins is a no blush no wax formula so there is no washing down between coats. FLAG must be mixed at two parts resin to one part hardener by volume or weight our pumps are pre calibrated (we recommend digital scales brought from the super market and covered with cling film for any long project) Mix the hardener and resin well, once mixed additives such as workshop mix or W.S M 10/20 can be added for gluing or fairing (see additives for more information).
Use. Flag can be used with slow, medium or fast hardeners for gluing most substances. It can be used just with its hardener added to go over any cloth work and build depth and thickness and fill in any weave that has been soaked out or to build a barrier coat.
With fillers such as silica micro balloons W.S 10/20 etc it can be used to fair out areas and help bring back the shape to a hull or object when used with Medium hardener it has very good anti slump properties
When gluing adding workshop mix or other additive helps fill voids however on large areas we recommend drilling of small holes which allow the epoxy to push through like worms these set to become epoxy nails and help prevent pockets of air from being trapped in the layers
When adding powders to make putty or slurry remember to always leave a shine on the mix otherwise it may be epoxy starved and crumble and not cure (do not make the mix to dry)
When moulding or filling large voids do so in small layers to avoid over heating
