WEST System 206 Slow Hardeners

West System 206 Slow Hardener is a low-viscosity epoxy curing agent for use when extended working and cure time is needed or to provide adequate working time at higher temperatures.

At 72-degrees, 206 Slow Hardener will have a 20-25 minute pot life. 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.

Not intended for clear coating applications.

West System is great

I have been using West epoxy for decades. I have used it for sailboat maintenance, radio antennas, car bodywork, building repairs, toys to timbers. Anything that needs to be filled and faired. The ability to select a hardener for speedy hardening or extended working time is a great advantage.I have used soft filler to repair wooden items like the rotted frames of very large windows that I got free to install in the barn workshop. Once filled they are stronger than wood and impervious to weather for a long time. I have pumps that I occasionally use if I want perfect proportions. But I usually just slop some resin and hardener in approximate proportions into a mixing tray, and for mot purposes it works very nicely. The measurements would probably be more economical and perhaps produce a better finished product but for most jobs I don't bother. The pumps leak as temperature changes expand the pressure in the cans. A sturdy end cap on the pumps would help. I've tried electrical wire-nuts and they are marginally effective. The pumps are messy, and usually spend their time on essentially empty cans.

Normally I prefer only Fast hardener, however, I had a rather large area of mat to wet out and anticipated warm weather ahead; so I purchased the Slow hardener. I did not realize the job would require so much resin and used up all the West System Resin that I had. My preference was to purchase Total Boat Resin because I've grown to like that product more than West; not to mention the money savings with free shipping for Total Boat. Instructions indicated I could use the two name brands together so I purchased Total Boat Resin and the West System slow hardener worked fine with the Total Boat Resin.

The slow hardener provides plenty of working time in the 90 degree and 80% humidity environment I am currently working in. I always time my mixing to ensure thorough mix with resin. I am using straight mix for fiberglass layup using directions that are available from West Systems. I had colloidal filler for some smoothing fills. My choice of filler depends on strength vs ease of sanding. Mostly go with strength. With the slow hardener it gives me more working time so very little sanding is typically required. If I do miss a spot I use a grinder.

This was my first time every using an epoxy and I was a bit concerned about my lack of experience. I got the pumps (I highly recommend them for proper measurements), read the directions on the epoxy, hardener and pumps and it was easy breezy. Great results!

I'm now using this product with West 205 resin on a new multi-layer bottom for an antique Chris Craft. It allows plenty of time for clamping and fastening and completely cures in a couple of days resulting in a bottom much more solid and leak resistant than the original construction.
