2. Surfboard Repair: Ideal for repairing damaged surfboards, providing a reliable and strong bond that restores the board’s integrity.
3. Other Composite Applications: Can be used in various other composite applications where similar performance characteristics are required.


1. Excellent Clarity: The transparent blue liquid resin allows for easy visual inspection during the application process, ensuring a perfect finish.
2. Durability and Strength: Offers high tensile and flexural strength, making it perfect for surfboards that need to withstand significant stress and impact.
3. Light Stabilized: The resin's light stabilization ensures that it remains clear and durable even after prolonged exposure to sunlight.
4. Easy to Use: Its low reactivity and medium viscosity make it easy to handle and apply, reducing the chances of errors during the application.
5. Versatile Curing Options: Suitable for both hand lay-up and UV curing methods, providing flexibility in manufacturing processes.

Usage Instructions

- Preparation: Ensure the resin is at a temperature of 25║C before use. Do not apply directly onto polystyrene.
- Catalyst Addition: Mix with 1% MEKP 50% catalyst and ensure thorough dispersion.
- Application: Suitable for hand lay-up and UV curing methods. Apply in a well-ventilated, flame-proof area due to the volatile and flammable nature of the resin.

Q & A

Can i use this to repair a Surfboard?

If the surfboard was manufactured using a Polyester resin then yes, if not it would have been made with an Epoxy resin in that case you would need an Epoxy resin to do a suitable repair as the adhesion between Polyester and Epoxy would not be suitable.
