PRO-SET Absolute Clear Epoxies are formulated for extremely clear coatings and laminations with carbon and other reinforcement fibers. Commonly used for clear coatings on wood, surfboard laminations, and other boardsport products in a production setting, this epoxy provides colorless clarity and UV stability. For ultimate long-term UV stability, use with a UV stable topcoat.
This product offers easy processing. It’s optimized for fill coats and hand wet out of lightweight reinforcement fabrics or fibers. Cures to an extremely smooth surface with excellent sandability. Reaches full physical properties at room temperature cure.
¹To prevent water spotting, avoid contact with moisture until epoxy is thoroughly cured and top coated.
²Store PRO-SET® Epoxy resins and hardeners at room temperature in sealed containers until shortly before use. As with many highperformance epoxy resins, repeated exposure to low temperatures during storage may cause the resin to crystallize. If this occurs, warm the resin to 125°F and stir to dissolve crystals. Hardeners may form carbamation when exposed to CO2 and moisture in the atmosphere for extended periods of time. Prevent carbamation by protecting hardeners from exposure until immediately prior to processing.
Test specimens were neat epoxy (without fiber reinforcement).
