West System 105A Epoxy Resin with 206A Slow Epoxy Hardener and 300 Mini Pumps Set

This Lifestyle By Focus bundle contains a West System 105A Epoxy Resin Container (32 fl oz), 206A Slow Epoxy Hardener Container (7 fl oz), and 300 Mini Pumps Epoxy Metering Pump Set (3-Pack). When combined with 105 Resin in a five-part epoxy resin to one-part hardener ratio, this cured resin/206 Slow Hardener mixture yields a rigid, high-strength, moisture-resistant solid with excellent bonding and barrier coating properties. The West System 206 Slow Hardener is not intended for clear coating.

West System 105A Epoxy Resin (32 fl oz)

This 105A Epoxy Resin is the base material on which all West System 105 System epoxy compounds are built. It is a clear, pale yellow, low-viscosity liquid epoxy resin. Blended with hardener at the proper ratio, it cures to a hard, solid plastic with superior physical properties. Based on which hardener you choose, it cures at a wide range of temperatures. Once cured, it forms a high-strength solid that is functionally waterproof, and highly resistant to moisture. The West System 105A Epoxy Resin is designed to wet out and bond with wood fiber, fiberglass, and reinforcing fabrics. It also bonds well with a variety of metals when mixed at the proper ratio with a West System Epoxy hardener.

No Strong Solvent Odor

105 Epoxy Resin is formulated without volatile solvents and does not shrink after curing. It has a relatively high flash point and no strong solvent odor, making it safer to work with than polyester or vinylester resins. Resin viscosity is approximately 1000 centipoise (cP) at 72-degree-F (22-degree-C).

Thickening Epoxy

Modifying this epoxy with West System fillers creates an excellent structural adhesive or fairing compound. You choose the filler that suits your project. Epoxy thickened with adhesive (high-density) fillers makes structural bonds, bridges gaps, and fills voids. Epoxy thickened with fairing (low-density) fillers is easily sanded and shaped after it cures.

Great Coating Material

This epoxy is also a great coating material. With roller applications, it has excellent thin film characteristics, allowing it to flow out and self-level without fish-eyeing. By combining it with blush-free 207 Special Clear Hardener (sold separately), you can create a natural finish when coated with varnish. This is a good alternative that builds mil thickness quickly, saving time and effort. The results are long-lasting.

Epoxy’s Cure Stages

Mixing 105 Epoxy Resin with a hardener begins a chemical reaction that transforms the combined liquid ingredients to a solid. This period of transformation is the cure time. As it cures, epoxy passes from the liquid state, through a gel state, before it reaches a solid state.

Batch Size and Cure Speed

You need to know that in larger quantities, epoxy cures much faster. This is because epoxy generates heat as it cures and also cures faster at higher temperatures. This snowball effect increases until the epoxy cures—which in very large batches could take only a couple of minutes. Large pots of mixed epoxy can generate enough heat to cause a runaway exothermic reaction. This includes fumes, melting the mixing cup or even starting a fire. Spreading epoxy thin allows the heat to dissipate and slows its cure.

Epoxy Casting

West System Epoxy has a very low percentage of shrinkage. In fact, the standards used to calculate shrinkage of other resins (polyester and vinyl ester) aren’t used with West System because it shrinks so little to measure that way. When epoxy is used to fill holes drilled into wood, it will soak into the end grain. This might look like shrinkage, but it’s not.

West System Epoxy

Based on 105 Epoxy Resin, West System Epoxy is a versatile low-viscosity epoxy system. It is used for boat building, composite construction and repairs that require high-strength, waterproof coating, bonding, and filling. It readily wets out fabrics and porous materials, and is easily modified for a wide range of working conditions and applications. West System Epoxy is the world’s most reliable and widely used marine epoxy.

Clamping Force

Unlike traditional wood glues, West System Epoxy is stronger than wood. Because of this, it is beneficial to have some epoxy between the objects you are gluing together whether they are wood, fiberglass, or other materials. As long as the epoxy is contacting the entire surface of both substrates, no clamping pressure is needed.

West System 206A Slow Epoxy Hardener (7 fl oz)

The West System 206 Slow Hardener is a low-viscosity epoxy curing agent for use when extended working time or a longer cure time is needed. It also provides adequate working time at higher shop temperatures. When combined with 105 Resin (sold separately) in a five-part epoxy resin to one-part hardener ratio, this cured resin/206 Slow Hardener mixture yields a rigid, high-strength, moisture-resistant solid with excellent bonding and barrier coating properties. The West System 206 Slow Hardener is not intended for clear coating.

No Need for Excessive Clamping Force

Unlike traditional wood glues, West System 105 Resin-based epoxy mixtures including 105 Resin and 206 Slow Hardener are stronger than wood or many other substrates. Because of this, it is beneficial to have some epoxy between the objects you are gluing together. As long as the parts are held in place and epoxy is contacting the entire surface of both substrates, no clamping pressure is needed. With epoxy, the goal clamping is to simply ensure the epoxy contacts the entire surface for the duration of the cure time. Moderating clamp force is all that is required.

Epoxy Filler is Important

If an epoxy filler is not used and a high clamping force is used, the result can be a glue-starved joint which will make bond failure much more likely. Glue starved joints are weaker than their counterparts. Avoid glue-starved joints by following the one- or two-step bonding method.

General Coating and Bonding Applications

The 105/206 Epoxy Mixture is used for general coating and bonding applications when extended working and cure time are needed or to provide adequate working time at higher temperatures. This epoxy resin forms a high-strength, moisture-resistant solid with excellent bonding and barrier coating properties. It will wet out and bond to wood fiber, fiberglass, reinforcing fabrics, foam and other composite materials, and a variety of metals.

Multiple Coats

The 105/206 Epoxy Mixture can be thickened with West System fillers to bridge gaps and fill voids and can be sanded and shaped when cured. With roller applications, it has excellent thin-film characteristics, allowing it to flow out and self-level without fish-eyeing. Multiple coats of the epoxy mixture create a superior moisture barrier and a tough, stable base for paints and varnishes. It is formulated without volatile solvents resulting in a very low VOC content. It has a relatively high flash point, no strong solvent odor and does not shrink after curing. It is not intended for clear coating natural finished wood.

West System 300 Mini Pumps Epoxy Metering Pump Set (3-Pack)

These 300 Mini Pumps from West System are designed for convenient and accurate metering of Group A, B, and C resin-based epoxy. This 300 Mini Pump Set contains one 105 Epoxy Resin Pump, one 205/206 Epoxy Hardener Pump, and one 207/209 Epoxy Hardener Pump. Pumps mount directly on the resin and hardener containers and eliminate the mess involved with measuring by weight or volume.

Calibrated for Precision

These pumps are calibrated to deliver the proper working ratio with one full pump stroke of resin for each one full pump stroke of hardener. 105/205-206 pumps deliver approximate 0.8 fl oz of resin/hardener with one full stroke of each pump. 105/207-209 pumps deliver approximately 0.9 fl oz of resin/hardener with one full stroke of each pump.

For Group A, B, and C Containers

Made of durable polypropylene, the Mini Pumps gives years of dependable service. As packaged, the pumps are ready to install on the Group Size B containers. A package of extension tubes for Group Size A containers is included with this pump set. Group Size C extension tubes are included with the 105-C Resin and 207-SC or 209-SC Hardener containers.

Accurate Metering

West System Epoxy Metering Pumps are calibrated for accurate metering of West System Epoxy Resin and Hardener at the proper mix ratio, while eliminating mess and guesswork. The correct epoxy resin to hardener ratio is important to ensure that the epoxy reaches its full potential for cured physical properties.

Ratio Verification

The ratio of each pair of Mini Pumps is controlled by the installation of a clip, that limits the stroke (and volume) of one or both of the pumps. All Mini Pumps are carefully inspected during this operation and during packaging. But the final test of a pump’s performance can’t be made until it is actually pumping resin or hardener. The ratio verification test described in the instructions confirms that both pumps are dispensing the correct volume and that the ratio of resin to hardener is within a critical narrow range.

Why Use Epoxy Metering Pumps?

Epoxy metering pumps ensure you’re using the correct ratio of resin to hardener, crucial to epoxy performance. Depending on the hardener you select, West System Epoxy is mixed at a ratio of five parts resin to one part hardener, or three parts resin to one part hardener. At the proper mix ratio, the number of chemically reactive sites in the resin balances the number of reactive sites in the hardener. The resin molecules are larger than the hardener molecules, and have few reactive sites, hence the 5:1 or 3:1 ratio. When the mix is stirred thoroughly, the resin and hardener molecules react to develop full strength.

Epoxy Metering Pumps for Fast Dispensing

West System Pumps dispense epoxy faster than any pump they’ve ever offered. These pumps work by trapping a fixed amount of resin and hardener then forcing (displacing) that trapped volume into the discharge tube. These offers improved epoxy pumping performance because changes in viscosity due to temperature change do not affect their performance.
