MAS Slow hardener is formulated for use with MAS epoxy resins and can be applied in a wide range of conditions where increased working time is required.
We highly recommend MAS Slow Hardener when coating or laminating large surfaces. The Slow formulation cures blush free and eliminates the need for time consuming wash downs during on-going laminations or repetitive build coats.
Use this hardener (200-250 poise) with MAS low viscosity epoxy resin for fast wet-out of reinforcing fabrics.
Note: Due to this item's high hazardous content, the 4 gallon and larger containers cannot be shipped by UPS or FedEx under any circumstances.
Available in Pint, Quart, Half Gallon, Gallon, 4 Gallon, and 5 Gallon sizes.
Use protective gloves when working with epoxy resin systems. Use soap and water or white vinegar to clean your hands. Use Denatured Alcohol to clean your tools.

I was looking for more epoxy for my CLC Teardrop kit build. Jamestown had the best price I could find, when shipping was factored in. This stuff works well. Easy to measure with the pumps.

I thought my boat project would take place in winter, so initially ordered fast hardener. Instead, the project has stretched into warmer weather and I need the slow hardener. Like all MAS products, the slow hardener is easy to work with and performs consistently. I just wish they would bring back the Miss MAS T-shirts with the really hot looking mermaid!

I am not an epoxy expert by any means, and Ifound MAS epoxy to be very easy to work with. Additionally, I have found Jamestown Distributors to be even easier to work with, and are now my first choice.

Using to lay out a large section of Dynel in 80 +degree heat and it keeps the epoxy workable just long enough to squeegee out after rolling.

Not as toxic as other hardeners. 2:1 mix with Mas resin as opposed to 5:1 West Systems. No yellow tint as with West System

it works nice and slow giving you a lot of working time. In colder temps it might be better to use a faster hardener but I have not tried it.

I first used this product while building Skerry from Chesapeake Light Craft. It's supplied with the kit. It's long working time make it very easy to use for the novice boat builder. The beautiful amber hue it imparts to wood and it's diamond hard finish will give you a boat that will be passed down for generations. Make sure to cover with a Good UV varnish so the epoxy doesn't yellow with age.

I work with reclaimed wood this combined with the low viscosity resin does a great job of filling cracks and securing knots, saves me a lot of time.

The Mas slow hardner system is an excellent choice for people who need a little extra set up time as it is slower to go off than some other epoxies I have used. It sets up clear on it's own and mixes well with additives. I will be using this product on all my new projects.
