WEST SYSTEM (Gougeon Brother inc) is a company with 50 years of experience in epoxy. The WEST SYSTEM line is high quality, versatile products that can be modified to offer unlimited products. Ideal for construction and repair requiring increased resistance to humidity and naval constraints. For repairing and building boats made of fiberglass, wood, aluminum, steel, composite materials, ferrocement as well as polyester!
WEST SYSTEM epoxy resins is a high quality, versatile two-component epoxy that can be easily modified to offer a wide range of coatings and adhesives. It is used for construction and repairs requiring increased moisture resistance. Ideal for the production of wooden boats, WEST SYSTEM products are well known in the shipbuilding industry and are used daily to repair and build ships. However, WEST SYSTEM epoxy resins are widely used for many applications within the construction industry, model making and the do-it-yourself market.
With its innovative dosing system, it is very simple to get the right amount of resin and hardener. To pour the exact proportions of resin and hardener (into a clean container made of plastic, metal or non-wax paper), press the mini pumps until they are fully pressurized. All you need is one full pressure of resin and one full pressure of hardener. Mix the resin and hardener thoroughly for 2 minutes, or longer at low temperatures.
The PRO-SET range is a brand of WEST SYSTEM dedicated to professionals. (coated in large volumes.). These are strong and light epoxies capable of withstanding the most difficult environments. For shipbuilding, system under infusion, post curing.
Multi-purpose two-component epoxy resin pack for the permanent waterproof bonding of many materials (fibreglass, ceramics, metals, plastics, wood and fabrics). Formulated to create structural bonds that absorb expansion stresses, blows and vibrations. Ideal for small repairs around the boat, in the workshop, in the garage or at home.
Easy to use, 1:1 mixing ratio. Working time is 45 minutes and pot life 75 minutes at room temperature. Cures in 3-4 hours and can be worked after 7-10 hours.
Resin 105 is the basic component of WEST SYSTEM products. It is a transparent, pale yellow, low-viscosity liquid resin. When mixed with one of the WEST SYSTEM hardeners, it can be used to impregnate wood fibres, glass fibres and a variety of materials. It can harden over a wide range of temperatures to form a very tough solid with excellent moisture resistance.
There are different hardeners according to your needs (fast, slow, for coating and UV protection, extra slow). For each size of resin canister, there is one size of hardener and mini pumps. Make sure that all cans have the same letter corresponding to the same packaging (e.g. A, B, C, D).
Adjust the strength, weight, texture, sandability and colour of the cured epoxy with one of the eight WEST SYSTEM fillers. Adjust the viscosity of the resin/hardener mixture according to the amount of filler added.
The fabrics are specifically reinforcing materials. These fabrics are very strong, they have a high capacity to resist tensile stress and compressive loads. WEST SYSTEM fabrics are periodically tested to ensure excellence and quality that meets the highest standards.
WEST SYSTEM tools are reusable plastic tools. The epoxy does not adhere to the plastic because of its smooth surface. We offer a wide range of tools allowing you to carry out your work in all serenity!
