WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive

West System Six10 is a thickened epoxy adhesive that combines the strength and reliability of a two-part epoxy with the easy to use convenience of a single part formula.

Cartridges feature mixing tips that ensure the right ratio of resin and hardener is automatically mixed upon application. Easy to apply with a standard caulking gun, Six10's unique non sagging formula lets this epoxy bond tenaciously to wood, metals, fiberglass, and concrete. Colorless resin and hardener.

Are you working on your boat or project after work or on the weekend? Not having to mix resin and hardener beforehand saves time. Are you working overhead, on vertical surfaces, or tight spaces? This thick adhesive won't cause problems with sagging or runoff.

Additional static mixing tips can be purchased separately.

Six10 Application & Cure Time Informaiton

Six10 cures in temperatures as low as 50F. Working time is 42 minutes at 72F. It cures to a solid state in 5-6 hours and will take high loads in 24 hours. The cure time is faster at warm temperatures and slower in cool temperatures. The Six10 cartridge holds 190 ml of epoxy resin and hardener.

To use this adhesive, replace the retaining nut and plug on the West System Six10 dispensing cartridge with the 600 Static Mixer that comes attached to the cartridge. Dispense the mixed 2-part epoxy adhesive using a standard caulking gun.

The efficient internal geometry of the 600 Mixer thoroughly blends resin and hardener in a short mixing length for good application control and a minimum of waste. Place high-strength, non-sagging Six10 thickened epoxy exactly where it's needed in less time and with no mess.

Additional 600 Static Mixer nozzles are available in packages of two or twelve.

If you're doing a small job, you don't have to use the static mixer. Simply squeeze out what you'll need (maybe even a little less- you can always mix a little more if short) onto a piece of poster board or plywood and stir thoroughly. The resin and hardener are slightly different colors; use this color difference to gauge the thoroughness of your mix. All should be a consistent color with no streaks.

As an amateur builder, working on evenings and weekends, Six10 is a timesaver. Mixing is limited to unthickened wet out. I can fly with the cartridges, laying the thickened epoxy wherever I want, following up with shaping and filleting. Also holds in situations where my mixes might have run out. I also use it in scarfs to dam the edges of the scarf and then feed more unthickened epoxy (which is stronger) from the top. That's a win-win.

I ran a single bead of this glue around the transom frame and when I got back to the start point the color was not the same. In fact the color changed through out the beads length. I should have stopped but thinking it would be OK I applied the plywood. Three weeks later the glue in some areas is still not hard. Lucky that these are above the water line. Yes I did waste the first few inches into a cup.

      Comments about WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive:

      I bought this to fill a few gaps that opened up on my new wood driftboat. When I first applied, I was thrilled, went on clear and very easy, so after filling the gaps I thought I'd cover the scratches on my beautiful red oak trim. What a mistake, I came back the next day and my oak trim had white streaks everywhere I applied this epoxy. I have 25 years as a taxidermist and would recommend Jamestown add a product taxidermist use, I believe it is used in the aircraft industry too; taxidermy supply companies sell under the name of Smooth Out or Magic Smooth, much less expensive and harden to almost clear, depending on how thick it is applied.

      Comments about WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive:

      I got this to tack between the stitches on a stitch and glue kayak. The tip dispenser is perfect for this. I also used it to bond the pieces for a hatch hold down and the strength is great.

      I did have problems dispensing after only 10 or 15 minutes. I though that since the product isn't mixed until it enters the tip, curing in the tip would not be a problem. This was not the case. I changed tips and finished the tube but had the same problem with the second tube. These were continuous applications but in 20 minutes it became almost impossible to get anything through the tip.

      I did use it without the tip, mixing in a cup and it worked great. Good tack. The parts stayed where I put them. Didn't need clamps.

      Comments about WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive:

      JD emailed me saying they were cancelling my order of West system six10 because it was hazardous. I immediatly ordered from another sourse and it is in the mail. Will I be likely to order from JD or, the more reliable source? Which supplier will I recommend to others in person and online?

      Comments about WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive:

      After pulling the boat and finding numerous jell-coat nicks on the bottom that needed repair, the old system of mixing and then getting it to stick to the boat while you are laying on your back just didn't get it! The ease of "squirting" the mix "up" directly onto the damaged area saved many hours of "mix, mess & drip". I love this stuff. The only drawback is that you can work so fast that you have to watch the rate in which you go thru the mix to insure you pace yourself and have enough to last to the end.

      Love the product. Remove the nozzle (static mixer) when done cut a small rubber washer to fit in back of nozzle with hole in center, use air pressure hose (blower) to blow through hole to clean out all the epoxy from the nozzle. works great none is wasted.

          Be warned about actual quantity supplied

          By preventec47

          from Atlanta, GA

          Pros

          • Very strong epoxy
          • Works Terrifically

          Cons

          • 1 ounce wasted in tip
          • Expensive for the QTY

          Best Uses

          • Verticle surfaces are OK
          • When convenience needed
          • When hi strength needed

          Comments about WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive:

          This is a very strong glue that is thick enough
          to be applied to vertical surfaces without sag
          or runoff. It is very convenient to use and store
          in compact spaces but beware of the limited quantity that is supplied. About six ounces come in the tube and one of those six are wasted in the tip so the tube only delivers about five actual ounces of mixed epoxy so it is best used as adhesive and not for filling etc.

          Pros

          • Little waste or mess
          • Very Easy To Apply

          Cons

          • Nozzles cannot be reused

          Best Uses

            Comments about WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive:

            I've used this product in the restoration of a wooden boat. The prethickened epoxy has remarkable nonsagging abilities and sets up well even in colder environments. The use of a caulking gun helps reduce waste and mess, although it's a shame that the mixing tip can't be reused. I recommend buying extras.

            be aware of quantity remaining in tube

            By Jim

            from Sierra Vista, AZ

            Pros

              Cons

              • Careful tubes half empty
              • Resin occupies back half
              • Tube empty at half plunge

              Best Uses

                Comments about WEST System Six10 Thickened Epoxy Adhesive:

                I was surprised. I thought the tube still half-full because the plunger on the gun was only in half-way. Apparently, it is the back half of the tube which the unmixed product occupies. When you think you've used about half, the tube is about empty.
