West System Six10 pre-thickened gap-filling epoxy

West System's Six10 is a pre-thickened, gap-filling epoxy that the manufacturer says has a smooth, non-sagging consistency that trowels easily, so it is ideal for filling voids and making fillets.

West System says Six10 adhesive provides similar characteristics to 105 resin and hardener thickened with 403 Microfibre Blend, but with the advantage of being pre-mixed and applied straight from the cartridge for point-and-shoot convenience with any standard caulking gun.  They say it is ideal for stitch-and-glue boat construction, fibreglass laminate repair and general bonding, and it bonds to a wide range of materials including wood, metals, composites and masonry.

How It Works

A unique piston inside the cartridge simultaneously dispenses the resin and hardener from the separate chambers and accurately controls the ratio. The resin and hardener are separated from contacting each other until they are outside the cartridge.

It should be noted when doing smaller jobs, you don't have to use the static mixer.  Simply squeeze out the amount needed onto a piece of plywood or board, mix the resin and hardener together thoroughly, and then apply to the job with a mixing stick or plastic spreader.

The hardener provides a long open time but has fast through-cure.  Six10 stays workable in the static mixer for 42 minutes at 25°C , making it practical for long or complicated assemblies, and cures in temperatures as low as 10°C.   It cures to a solid state in 5 – 6 hours at 25 degrees Celsius and will take high loads in 24 hours.

The coaxial cartridge contains 190ml of resin and hardener and additional static mixers are available in packs of 2.
