Cold Cure Epoxy

Features: Cold-Cure has been one of the latest break-through in epoxy resin technology. The disadvantages of the earlier systems have been overcome. Studies were completed to provide the quality need to be used in adverse conditions for a variety of applications.

Low Temperatures: An outstanding feature it the ability to remain workable and cure in temperatures just above freezing. Most resins are so viscous (thickened) at low temperatures they are extremely hard to pour in correct proportions, to be mixed and applied. Cold-Cure has a low enough viscosity that it enables pouring and working easy, even in cold temperature.

Wet Conditions:

One major drawback of standard epoxies is the fact that the hardener will react with any moisture rather than the epoxy, thereby destroying he hardener. The unique quality of Cold-Cure is that displaces the water and prefers to interact with the hardener, giving a bond to wet wood and damp fiberglass and even underwater surfaces.

Flexibility: The older rapid curing epoxies had a design flaw that became a major draw back – that of the resulting reacting was so extreme that it produced a very brittle product.

The current Cold-Cure product is flexible making it ideal for use with wood.

100% Solids: Cold-Cure is 100% solids (no solvents) which means it is completely waterproof and moisture vapor proof.

Safety: Cold-Cure is very mild compared to some of the other systems available. There is low skin irritation, and being solvent free there is no danger of explosion. Thorough cleanliness should always be practiced, using soap and water for hands and acetone or laquer thinner for tools.
