System Three Silvertip Gel Magic Adhesive

Silvertip Gel Magic is a two-part epoxy adhesive that will not sag or run. Designed for wood and other porous materials. No more measuring fillers. Gel Magic components mix easily into a paste that is ready to be applied to vertical and overhead surfaces without sagging or otherwise making a mess. It's thoroughly mixed when the blue color indicator disappears.

Gel Magic cures at temperatures as low as 50°F, and can be post-cured up to 140°F for even greater performance. When fully cured, it is unaffected by water, oil, kerosene, and many other chemicals. It will not stain wood and is immune to fungus and rot.

Best used for stitch & glue, plywood, strip built and glued lapstrake construction. Also ideal as a high strength, gap filling, waterproof adhesive for general woodworking and architectural applications.

a Gel before its time


Opened the sealed System 3 Gel bottles, nothing came out, both the Epoxy and the Hardener had already jelled. I've used it in the past with good r4esult but these bottles were defective. Think I'll go back to mixing my own non-run stuff by adding a little bit of West wood filler to regular epoxy.

Great for bonding Steel to FRP


I use the Gel Magic to bond Steel Tabs to Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber Parts that go on Porsche Racing Cars to 180 MPH and its has been a fantastic product for me .I like the work time ,others I have tried dry too fast so I highly recommend the Gel Magic to anyone with a similar need

System Three Gel Magic-No runs


I was introduced to Gel Magic by boatbuilder and boat building instructor Clint Chase from The Landing in Portland, ME. He provided Gel Magic in both bulk and the mixer tubes in a boat kit. The bulk is more economical and what I primarily use in laminating various boat frame parts. The mixer tubes are unbeatable, though, for a small quantity of ready to use Gel Magic for small projects or when you need a small additional amount of the laminating gel to complete a project. As this gel does not run, it is still easy to spread to the desired thickness with short hair disposable brush or to even out with multiple types of applicators. When you clamp up your parts, you get the desired squeeze-out and still no runs. The squeeze-out does cure hard, thus cleaning up the squeeze-out make for less work later in the project.




safe choice


I've used this to build a 34-foot molded plywood schooner. At one point, bending the 1x6 D. fir first lamination of the sheer clamp in to meet the sternpost required a come-along, and the angle was acute, with the bevel on the board endgrain. I thought "She'll never hold." Guess what: she held!(I reinforced it anyway though.) Epoxy approaches magic, and this is a good one.

This is very tough epoxy


This stuff is very tuff, ( i couldn't scrap or even sand it with 80 grit very efectively), used as a sealer-adhesive does not roll out smooth it is too thick a gel, but it doesn't sag or run or fly off the roller even over head.
