WEST System Graphite Powder Customer Questions and Answers

4 of 4 Questions

Question

I want to use the Graphite Powder but need to build up the material a little bit, 1/8 or less with 406 filler. Can I mix the two and apply on the second filler coat or would it be best to apply three coats, Graphite Powder last?

Asked on 04/06/2016 by David Rhead

Top Answer

I would think you can go either way. if you are looking for the graphite to be your final coat underwater I would use the 207 hardener. only the 207 will keep it from fogging to a dull finish.

I would call the west system folks for their recommendation!

Answer

You can mix the powder and apply in the initial application. There will be some shrinkage due to the depth of area being filled. Mix must be accurate for best results. I hope this response helps.

Answer

Question

Thinking of using graphite filler on teak toe rail joint. Then varnish over it with epiphanies gloss varnish . Any issues with varnish over the graphite export?

Asked on 09/08/2015 by E Hat

Top Answer

I didn't try to varnish over the graphite export - I have used it for hotcoats on rails of epoxy surfboards. Unsanded, I suspect that it will behave the same as unsanded epoxy. The problem is that, when using epoxy and varnish, I have always sanded the epoxy prior to using the varnish (which works well). I am just not sure if sanding will expose graphite particles and, if so, whether the varnish will have problems sticking to the exposed graphite. You may want to try a section.

No issues. You should be fine. west system is a very stable product. Add graphite up to a point it stops sagging and stop. Any more than that and it seems to affect its density.

Answer

I used West epoxy mixed with graphite for the finish coat of the sides and bottom of a wood/epoxy kayak. Worked great, but I'm not sure the varnish would stick very well to the graphite/epoxy mix. Apparently, the graphite inhibits UV degradation of the epoxy, so I don't see much point in coating it with anything.

Answer

Although not a direct answer to your question, I used it to fill knot holes in a maple counter top I built (because i wanted the color of the holes to be black ). I slightly overfilled the holes and sanded. Then used 3 coats of Waterlox finish. Been in daily use now for almost 3 years with no problems.
