MAX BOND LOW VISCOSITY A/B is a two-part epoxy/polyamide resin system specially formulated to provide structural strength to a variety of marine and boat building use such as structural fiberglassing, waterproofing, and high strength bonding application.
It is the low viscosity version (thinner) of MAX BOND family of marine grade resin systems providing improved ease of use and faster fiberglass fabric wetting.
Please note that the consistency of this formulation is similar 30-weight motor oil. It is only diluted from the base epoxy and curing agent formulation to yield ease of use and general fabric impregnation. Over dilution of the resin system ( below 1000 cPs similar to the consistency of cooking oil) are over diluted with lower functional epoxy diluents that will also dilute or lower the final cured mechanical strength.
All the MAX BOND series of epoxy resin demonstrates excellent adhesion to polyester based marine hulls. It is best suited for structural building and reinforcement, waterproofing and in all manners of boat building construction, repair and maintenance.
MAX BOND LOW VISCOSITY A/B demonstrates negligible loss of mechanical properties from continuous water immersion. MAX BOND LOW VISCOSITY A/B will cure even in humid and low temperature conditions. It is generally room temperature cured but can be snap cured at elevated temperatures for a short period of time.
MAX BOND LOW VISCOSITY A/B demonstrates structural bond strengths to a variety of substrates commonly used in the manufacturing of modern marine vessels of such as wood, steel, aluminum, copper and other metal alloys, polyester constructed fiberglass and most plastics.
MAX BOND LOW VISCOSITY A/B performs well in wide range of service temperature and resists cracking and delamination caused by repeated impact cyclic vibration, thermal expansion/contraction and physical breakdown due to continuous sea water immersion.
