Microfiber & Fillers
Selection Guide (click here)
a fine fiber blend, is used as a thickening additive with resin/hardener to
create a multi-purpose adhesive, especially for bonding wood. Epoxy thickened
with microfibers has good gap-filling qualities while retaining excellent
wetting/penetrating capability. Color: off-white.
404- High-Density Filler
is a thickening additive
developed for maximum physical properties in hardware bonding where high-cyclic
loads are anticipated. It can also be used for filleting and gap filling where
maximum strength is necessary. Color: off-white.
406 Colloidal Silica
is a thickening additive used to control the viscosity of the epoxy and prevent
epoxy runoff in vertical and overhead joints. 406 is a very strong filler that
creates a smooth mixture, ideal for general bonding and filleting. It is also
our most versatile filler. Often used in combination with other fillers, it can
be used to improve strength, abrasion resistance, and consistency of fairing
compounds, resulting in a tougher, smoother surface. Color:
407 Low-Density Filler
is a blended microballoon-based filler used to make fairing putties that are
easy to sand or carve. Reasonably strong on a strength-to-weight basis. Cures to
a dark red/brown color.
is the ideal low-density filler for creating a light, easily-worked fairing
compound especially suited for fairing large areas. Microlight mixes with
greater ease than 407 Low-Density filler or microballoons and is approximately
30% easier to sand. It feathers to a fine edge and is also more economical for
large fairing jobs. Not recommended under dark paint or other surfaces subject
to high temperatures. Cures to a tan color.
