The MGS 335 Epoxy should be mixed at a 100:38 resin:hardener ratio. This means the following:
|60 g (~2 oz)||43.48 g||16.52 g|
|120 g (~4 oz)||86.96 g||33.04 g|
|180 g (~6 oz)||130.43 g||49.57 g|
|240 g (~8 oz)||173.91 g||66.09 g|
Don’t try to mix more than 8 ounces (~240 g) in a batch. If your layup requires more than 8 ounces, make multiple batches. Mix enough epoxy for a 3:4 ratio of epoxy to fiberglass by weight (that is, mix 75% as much epoxy as fiberglass by weight).
Mix the glass bubbles with already-mixed epoxy.
|Material||Desired Consistency||Ratio (Balloons:Epoxy) (by volume)|
|Slurry||Almost same as epoxy||1:1|
|Wet Micro||Sags or runs like thick honey||2-4:1|
|Dry Micro||Paste that does not run or sag||~5:1|
Apply Dry Micro with a putty knife. Apply Wet Micro and Slurry with brushes.
As with Slurry and Micro, mix the flocked cotton with already-mixed epoxy.
|Material||Desired Consistency||Ratio (Cotton:Epoxy) (by volume)|
|Flox||Just enough to make the mixture stand up||~2:1|
|Wet Flox||Sag or Run|
When using flox to bond a metal part, be sure to sand the metal dull with 220-grit sandpaper. Also paint pure epoxy (no flox) on the metal part prior to bonding with flox.
