A thixotropic agent which prevents sagging or dropping of resin when applied on vertical surfaces. Also ideal to use as a thicken with Pros-aide to create a creamy formula which helps prevent any dripping.An extremely fine powder used to thicken virtually every liquid material. It is typically used to thicken resin, paint, dyes, and even water. It is great for making fillet putty, thickening epoxy for a better glue consistency.
Milled Glass Fibers can produce a high strength non-sagging structural adhesive. 3M Glass Bubbles produce an easy spreading and sanding faring compound.
Proper sequence for mixing these compounds is to first measure catalysts or hardener into resin and mix thoroughly. Next, add fiber reinforcements and mix to assure complete fiber wet out. Fillers such as 3M Bubbles follow with the fumed silica is added last. Mix well. Fumed Silica can contribute to difficulties in sanding. Where sanding will follow, use only as much fumed silica as is required to impart thixotrophy.
CAUTION: Dry powdered materials can build static electrical charges when subject to friction. Proper precautions in the presents of flammable or explosive liquids should be taken to prevent accidents.Avoid contact with eyes and prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Wear goggles and face shield when handling. Avoid breathing dust, wear respirator. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep away from heat, spark, and flame. Store, handle and use in a manner that will minimize dust generation.
FIRST AID: in case of contact with skin wash with warm water and soap. For eyes, immediately flush with plenty of water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists, get medical attention. If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If breathing difficulty persists consult physician. Wash clothes before re-use.
