Answer

Absolutely!!

Answered on 08/12/2016 by DON GRAY

Answer

Yes absolutely. That is primarily the way I use it. It's much better than mixing the additives yourself. There's almost no sagging with this. If you have any specific product questions, West System has a phenomenal tech help department you can call as well.

Yea it is

Answered on 08/13/2016 by ANNA PORTER

Answer

I used the product 6-10 thickened epoxy for my chain plate rebedding project. It worked very well - set up was quick and redrilling went smoothly. I would recommend it for most deck rebedding projects

Answered on 08/12/2016 by DARYL SMITH

Answer

The answer might depend on what you're drilling through. For most materials, Six10 will be a good choice. If you plan to drill through something with a porous core, like a balsa-cored deck, then plain liquid epoxy will absorb into the core better. You tape the bottom of the hole, pour some in, wait for it to absorb into the core, pour more in, repeat, repeat. If you are drilling through solid wood, Six10 is a good choice, but get all the holes drilled and then fill them all, you waste the material that fills the tip each time you begin to use the tube.

Lasted two months for me

Answered on 12/06/2016 by HAROLD TAUSCH

Answer

At least one year when you kept the tubes closed but you need each time a new swirl nozzle

Answered on 12/05/2016 by FRIEDRICH KORSCH

Answer

Don'. But epoxy has a long shelf life (years) if covered and out of direct light.

Answered on 12/06/2016 by JAMES LYLE

Answer

Hi- As long as it is stored properly (remove mixing nozzle if you use it, no cross-contamination at the end, with the little double plastic sealer and cap in place) it should store indefinitely (like any epoxy). I have stored a tube for several years with no issues.

Answer

I do not have the answer, but I sure would like to know!!!

Answered on 12/06/2016 by William Ross

Answer

I'm sure the manufacturer could answer that best . My experience has been, if you keep the nozzle clean , and remember to put the bifurcated plug back so it matches colors . The end will remain relatively free and should last for month's . This stuff is very handy for small jobs at a moments notice with minimal set up .

i want to purchase west system six 10 epoxy, how long does it last if i dont use it all at once ,?what are the extra tips for ?

Asked on 08/15/2016 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

If you don't use it all, leave the tip on. The next time you need to use it screw on a new tip and you are good to go. It will last a long time in the tube.

Answer

If you ant to re-use, remove mixing tip; be sure cartridge tip is cleaned and does not have any "mixed" epoxy; re-cap.Extra tip is for second use. I did not leave it ore than a couple of weeks....

Answered on 08/16/2016 by Paul Carroll

Answer

I used the same tube a couple times within three days, the extra tips went on after taking the used tube off and recapping the tube. The used tip was full of epoxy that hardened.

Answered on 08/16/2016 by JEFF PENNINGTON

Answer

I expect it has a shelf life about as long as any other West Systems epoxy - on the order of years. The tips are disposable because the epoxy hardens inside them. The extra tips are in case you don't use the entire tube at once. I try to wait until I have a good Size job to do before I pull out the Six10. It helps minimize the number of tips I throw away. It's an expensive product, but it's worth it.

Answered on 08/15/2016 by NICK BEHLMAN

Answer

I built an icebox with it two years ago and recently used some out of the tube, stil fine. Regular mixing epoxy lasts for years and i see no reason 610 woiuld not. Carefully wipe off any excess at end of nozzle after use to prevent two types mixing. I use a permanent marker to mark tip and cartridge with one and two dots to make sure tip goes back into right hole to prevent mixing. I use a small paper cup to squeeze it out into to mix and use a black mixing stick to "cut" off excess at end before inserting tip as mixing nozzle uses a lot of mix just to fill it.

Answered on 08/16/2016 by BILL LUNDQUIST

Answer

It seems to last indefinitely as per my experience, but the hardener takes on an amber color as it ages. the discoloration does not appear to affect strength, just appearance. Extra tips: unless you are extremely meticulous, the tips are hard to clean effectively. Much easier to start with a fresh tip if you've stopped in the middle of a tube. Great stuff!

Answered on 08/16/2016 by DARBY RYAN

Answer

I bought 2 tubes in August 2014. I also bought extra mixing tips. I still have 3/4 of a tube left in August 2016. I used some about a month ago. If you remove the tip and wipe the tube end so as not to mix the two parts and replace the top it should last a long while. The mixing tip however will be no good in about an hour, throw it away. You will need a new tip every time that you use some. I hope this helps. I find it great to have around for little jobs.

I love doing handy man stuff but owning a bar doesn't give me much time- that's why the all in one tube applications was great. If I don't find what i need I will give you options a try thanks,

Answered on 03/14/2015 by Erik tes

Answer

To get a clear finish from the epoxies that I use I have to make my own up. For thickening properties I use model airplane micro balloons as the thickening agent. I mix up a clear epoxy mix and add the clear balloons as needed to get the material thick enough to fill and stay in place. After it has cured I sand smooth and cover with another coat of clear epoxy by itself. let cure and finish sand.

Are you just trying to fill a gap or are you trying to adhere two surfaces? If you are just trying to fill a gap, use OSI or Lexcel clear caulk.

Applied under water or for use under water or below the water line? I don't know. I would think the mfg. would have information for underwater use. The applicator didn't work well so I just squirted out equal parts and mixed it up. I used it on mahogany and it worked well. DT Davis

I have no experience with that - have only used on wood and fiberglass. But - PE has a surface film that should be removed before attempting any joining/glueing. good luck - it was a great success to use for my purpose.

I do not know. The Six10 should work on anything on which the West 105 resin will work. Why not try some 105 and see if it works? Then, if success, go to the Six10.

I don't have the data sheet in front of me as I write but I am sure that the data is available. I have used the product only in compression, mainly to help mount oarlock sockets and seat brackets for a dinghy that I am restoring. In that application it is just the right thing because it is thick and will not run and also can be molded to the shape desired. I am a big fan of the product!
