Entropy Clear Extra Fast Hardener

Entropy Clear Extra Fast Hardener (CLX) provides the fastest cure time for the Clear (CLR) and Optically Brightened (BRT) laminating epoxy systems. The CLR system is water-clear; the BRT system is bright white.

Both are low-viscosity, UV-stable liquid epoxies for composites, coatings & adhesive applications, and are optimized for hand lay-up, room temperature processes, or infusion laminating of wood, fibers, glass, carbon, or Kevlar. All Super Sap resins exhibit low color, excellent air release, and great UV & color stability.

Use CLX Hardener with CLR or BRT resins for fastest cure time at room temperature. CLR and BRT resins, as well as CLS/CLF/CLX hardeners have a bio-content greater than 30% & can be modified with epoxy compatible colorants & fillers.

Features of Clear Extra Fast Hardener (CLX) Combined with Clear (CLR) or Optically Brightened (BRT) Laminating Epoxy Resin

  • Fastest speed hardener for Entropy's high-performance, clear (CLR) epoxy coating, or bright white (BRT) epoxy resin.
  • Green epoxy resin with fast room temperature cure.
  • Excellent composite laminating resin ideal for hand layup and vacuum bagging.
  • Great for high-color applications requiring a clear, non-yellowing resin system.
  • UV-stable formula with relatively low viscosity.
  • First USDA BioPreferred Certified liquid epoxy resin system.
  • CLX requires corresponding size of CLR or BRT Laminating Epoxy Resin for use (2:1 mix ratio). See chart below.

Safety and Handling Information

Despite the natural derivation of Entropy resin products, exposure to these materials represents hazards typical of all epoxy resins. Exposure should be minimized and avoided through the use of proper personal protective clothing & equipment, and appropriate manufacturing controls. All persons who use, store, or transport these materials should understand proper handling precautions and recommendations, as stated in the SDS (safety data sheets).
