Bob Smith Industries QUICK-CURE 5 Minute Epoxy (4 1/2oz)
QUIK-CURE 5 min. epoxy cures to a slightly flexible consistency. This lack of brittleness allows it to form a lasting bond in areas subjected to high vibration or stress. QUIK-CURE shouldn't be used in areas that are subject to long-term immersion in water; however, it works fine for the internal structure of wood framed boats. QUIKCURE is our only epoxy on which you can apply polyester resins. It can be mixed with microballoons to form a quick setting putty. Items bonded with QUIK-CURE can be handled after 15 minutes. Full strength is reached in 1 hour.
Works Best On:
- Hard Wood
- Glass & Metal
Works Good On:
- Balsa Wood
- Soft Wood
- Hard Plastics
- White Foam
QUIK-CURE 5 min. Epoxy is an equal two-part hobby adhesive that forms high strength bonds through a chemical reaction between the resin and hardener. The cured epoxy is resistant to most chemicals.
QUIK-CURE is the least temperature sensitive of our epoxies. It will cure in temperatures down to 40ÂºF. Temperatures above 90ÂºF shorten the working time before the epoxy begins to set up from 5 to less than 4 minutes.
QUIK-CURE bonds best to clean, textured surfaces. Smooth, non-porous surfaces should be roughened with coarse sandpaper to improve adhesion. Acetone and Isopropyl rubbing alcohol work as the best solvents for cleaning uncured epoxy from surfaces. QUIK-CURE'S lack of brittleness allows it to form lasting bonds on materials as different as balsa wood and glass; however, it is not recommended for areas subject to long-term immersion in water. Cured QUIK-CURE can be coated with polyester resin without affecting the curing of the resin. Full cure in less than 15 minutes.
