WEST SYSTEM epoxy cures to a high-strength plastic solid at room temperatures, by mixing specific proportions of liquid epoxy resin and hardener. This highly moisture-resistant plastic adheres to a wide range of materials, making it ideal for projects that require water and chemical resistence, and strong physical properties for structural bonding. Select from a range of hardeners and additives that allow you to tailor the mixture's handling characteristics and the physical properties of the cured epoxy to suit your working conditions and specific coating or bonding application.
105 Epoxy Resin® is the base material on which all West System 105 System epoxy compounds are built. The resin is a clear, pale yellow, low-viscosity liquid epoxy resin. Formulated for use with West System hardeners, it can be cured in a wide temperature range to form a high-strength solid with excellent moisture resistance.
105 Resin is formulated without volatile solvents and does not shrink after curing. It has a relatively high flash point and no strong solvent odor, making it safer to work with than polyester or vinylester resins. Resin viscosity is approximately 1000 centipoise (cp) at 22ºC.
105 Resin is designed specifically to wet out and bond with wood fiber, fibreglass, reinforcing fabrics and a variety of metals when mixed at the proper ratio with a West System hardener. An excellent adhesive, 105 mixtures will bridge gaps and fill voids when modified with West System fillers and can be sanded and shaped when cured. With roller applications, it has excellent thin-film characteristics to flow out and self-level without “fisheyeing.” 105 Resin/207 Hardener mixtures cure clear so you can achieve a natural finish when coating with varnish.
