I am going to have my intake reset in the neer future and was wondering what epoxy to buy? I have done some reading and it looks like people were having to problems with the "sea goin poxy putty" stuff i can get west system stuff at cost from my work does west system make anything that is up to the task? I have used the six10 stuff but it cures really hard and is pretty thin when beeing worked with there is also the gflex 655 stuff it says in the description is is somewhat flexable when cured here is the description is this stuff suitable to set an intake with? Thanks in advance
A toughened, versatile epoxy that is conveniently prethickened for permanent waterproof bonding of plastic, fiberglass, ceramics, metals, damp and difficult-to-bond woods. With a modulus of elasticity of 150,000 PSI, it is a bit more flexible than standard epoxies and polyester, but much stiffer than adhesive sealants. This gives G/flex 655 the ability to make structural bonds that can absorb the stress of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration. It is ideal for bonding dissimilar materials. Mixed at a 1:1 ratio, G/flex 655 gives you 45 minutes of working time at room temperature. It reaches an initial cure in 7 to 10 hrs and full cure in 24 hrs. Click for photo. (8 fl. oz. / 250 mL)
Have had solid success with Sea Going 'poxy putty for years and continue to use it We set a lot of intakes and withstanding a very limited issue with a small batch produced by the mfg a few years back we always find the product to be consistent and dependable
just got a bad batch of sea going putty, from cp, dated nov 8th 2013, went off in 10 min after mixing, didn't even get the intake covered with the putty, they are sending me new putty, different date. 3 years ago I got bad batch also, not from cp, not there fault, another source, it was sea going poxy putty' fault, from now on I am going to mix a test batch first.
