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.

        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.

                    As a first time wooden boat builder, I tried two other epoxy resins before finding West system resins. The others only wasted time and money. There is no comparison. The pumps make a perfect mix everytime. It goes on easier than anything else I tried. It dried quickly and evenly. It is simply the best to use and goes on perfect everytime.

                    My Dad built a Popular Science Redwood canoe in the '70s. I am trying to make it look good and useable again. This stuff handles all my adhesive needs as well as adding structural integrity to somewhat degraded Redwood. I am also using it for my fiberglass repairs on Polyurethane Resin. I also have an early '70s Chrysler TriHull that needs bottom repairs & this is the product.

                      I had done some fiberglass work in the past,mixing the correct ratio of hardener to resin was always a problem. Not with West Systems. Your repair manual is excellent. I now feel that there is no job that I couldn't do.

                          I use epoxies and adhesives daily in my "regular" job. I have never used a product that was this good. The West System 105 resin is the best I ever used. It is easy to apply, provides more surface area coverage, and dries to a tack free surface faster than any other resin I have used. I also like the blush free finish after it is fully cured. I highly recommend the West System products
