ThistleBond Marine Repair resins are liquid epoxide resins, which when mixed with the appropriate amount of hardener produces a mix that will have exceptional adhesive properties, making this the perfect repair matrix for metals, wood, glass, GRP and other synthetic materials.
UPS 19000 RH THISTLEBOND STANDARD RESIN & HARDENER is a specially developed epoxide, which ensures that the mix not only cures at normal ambient temperatures but also attains maximum strength in a reasonable working time.
Supplied in 10 Unit resin packs that are all pre-measured in correct proportions for subsequent mixing. Each individual unit contains one container of hardener and one container of resin. The resin container is designed to facilitate its use as a mixing container for both resin and hardener.
Specially developed epoxide repair compounds supplied in two separate packs marked A and B. when mixed together in equal portions by volume the cement will cure to an extremely strong mass with a better adhesive / laminate bond that one produced with the UPS 19000 RH ThistleBond Standard Resin Hardener.
Specially treated glass fibre fabric that ensures UPS 19000 RH will fully permeate the fabric and give the resultant glass fibre resin laminate repair excellent mechanical properties.
UPS 9911 Glass Mat
A fabric consisting of a random weave of glass fibres that will absorb a considerable quantity if mixed resin which, when cured, will produce a mechanically strong mass.
UPS 9913 Sealer Filler
Special non-asbestos filler in powder form for addition to the resin mix after the initial mixing has taken place. The resultant sealer filler mix has two very useful properties. The mix is very thixotropic and can therefore be applied to vertical areas. The mix can be applied to operate at temperatures up to 180°C (356°F). When it is applied a pre-coat, prior to carrying out a repair, it will help to insulate the resin laminate form the operating temperature of the parent body repair.
UPS 9912 Fairing Compound
A second filler consisting of glass fibre strands for addition to the resin mix after the initial mixing has taken place and can be used in a similar way to the Sealer Filler.
