WEST System 206 Slow Hardeners

West System 206 Slow Hardener is a low-viscosity epoxy curing agent for use when extended working and cure time is needed or to provide adequate working time at higher temperatures.

At 72-degrees, 206 Slow Hardener will have a 20-25 minute pot life. When combined with 105 Resin in a five-part resin to one-part hardener ratio, the cured resin/hardener mixture yields a rigid, high-strength, moisture-resistant solid with excellent bonding and coating properties.

Not intended for clear coating applications.

            This was my first time every using an epoxy and I was a bit concerned about my lack of experience. I got the pumps (I highly recommend them for proper measurements), read the directions on the epoxy, hardener and pumps and it was easy breezy. Great results!

              Comments about WEST System 206 Slow Hardeners:

              I'm now using this product with West 205 resin on a new multi-layer bottom for an antique Chris Craft. It allows plenty of time for clamping and fastening and completely cures in a couple of days resulting in a bottom much more solid and leak resistant than the original construction.

                    Great epoxy for using on laminating wood.
                    Very thin and flows out easily.
                    I recommend getting a good postal scale so you can do some small batches.
                    Easy ratio to remember, hardener is .20 of the resin.
                    So a 5 gram of resin needs 1 gram of hardener.
                    Dries real hard too.

                          I have been using WEST system since 1980. Never a problem. I balance my use of 205 and 206 hardeners for seasonal conditions. Think before you mix. Plan each project. All the best.
