WEST System Epoxy Kit

Our West System Epoxy kit contains everything you need to tackle epoxy repairs and fiberglassing projects. Each kit includes a gallon of West System 105 resin (105B, .98 gal), 205B (fast) or 206B (slow) hardener, mixing pumps, 6 ounce fiberglass cloth, mixing sticks, latex gloves, the official West System user manual, and the West Fiberglass Restoration book.

205 fast hardener is used primarily in cooler temps or for a more rapid cure. 206 slow hardener is used in warmer temps or when more work time is needed.

The Gougeon Brothers (founders of WEST) have been producing an effective epoxy for boat building and woodworking for over 35 years. While items may also be purchased separately, purchasing the complete kit saves time and money.

Both epoxy kits come with the WSY-300 standard plunger pump, but are compatible with the 306-25 and 309 Pumps. The Resin to Hardener ratio for the 105B Kits is 5:1 by either weight or volume. 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. These kits are not intended for clear coating.

      Comments about WEST System Epoxy Kit:

      I've read about WEST System epoxy since I believe college. Maybe never had the time but I've just retired and for the first time used the WEST system glueing up a dory bottom. Had I used the WEST System when I first read about it, I would have lived a totally differenc life. I've never had a better glue up and can't stop thinking about the next project and the next. I've always wanted to sail a boat I built myself to Bermuda. With the WEST System it will happen.

      Great for fiberglass work on classic cars and hot rods. The cloth gives good rigidity for body lines and structure. Glass work is always messy so thats really the only con.

      Comments about WEST System Epoxy Kit:

      The pumps make it easy to use.I do not recommend using the slow hardner when temps are in low 50's. Takes too long to set up. But West System is an outstanding product that I will use on all my boating projects.

              The kit provided all the materials we needed to immediately work with epoxy and fiberglass in the class. The pumps worked especially well to measure the materials.

              Comments about WEST System Epoxy Kit:

              This stuff works great, but you must be aware of temperature in the workplace. I did my work outside and the materials were heated by the sun and when mixed, the batch cooked off in very short order. The guidelines from the instructions have to be adjusted for your work environment.

                      I've never had to repair anything using fiberglass and this kit made my first experience simple. The kit comes with and idiot guide and were easy to follow. Only negative point is, I wish the kit would have come with a few yards of woven roving.
