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.

        Comments about WEST System 206 Slow Hardeners:

        The slow hardener provides plenty of working time in the 90 degree and 80% humidity environment I am currently working in. I always time my mixing to ensure thorough mix with resin. I am using straight mix for fiberglass layup using directions that are available from West Systems. I had colloidal filler for some smoothing fills. My choice of filler depends on strength vs ease of sanding. Mostly go with strength. With the slow hardener it gives me more working time so very little sanding is typically required. If I do miss a spot I use a grinder.

                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.
