1) FUMED SILICA

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO MARINE CATALOG HOMEPAGE **


Fumed Silica Thickener: (ALSO A FAVORITE WITH FLY FISHERMAN)

We Proudly sell only hydrophobic (will not dissolve in water - some fumed silicas do) fumed silica - Click Here to goto our FUMED SILICA PAGE. learn more about fumed silica than you really care to know!


Used to gel and thicken epoxies. Looks like fake snow. Extremely light (1 pound equals about 10 quarts) Equal amounts of epoxy and silica produces a mixture similar to thin cake batter. Two parts silica to 1 part epoxy yields an icing like mixture. Increasing the mixture to about 2.5 to 1 results in a fudge like putty. Some fumed silicas are water soluble. Our product is NOT water soluble.


NOTE - THIS PRODUCT IS VERY FINE AND PUTS PARTICLES INTO THE AIR WHEN 'SCOOPING' OR TRANSFERRING- USE PROPER PROTECTION TO KEEP OUT OF FACE AND OFF CLOTHING. DON'T ORDER IF YOU HAVE DUST/BREATHING CONCERNS.


Common applications: epoxy thickener, used by fly fishermen to coat their fishing flies

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO MARINE CATALOG HOMEPAGE **

0% VOC --- Shipped UPS ground only. Only shipped within the lower 48 states


 An alternative to the every popular Fumed Silica, EZ thick is a cellulose based powder that quickly and easily blends into the epoxy (unlike fumed silica). A 1 gallon unit will thicken about 3 quarts of our No Blush epoxy into something approaching mashed potatoes (in texture and color).


Common applications: epoxy thickener



PRICING

2  quart - $17  (about 7.9 oz per quart)


Shipping often costs more than the product. Best to combine this product with an 'over the phone' epoxy order. This way it pretty much ships "'free" with the epoxy.





3) MICRO BALLOONS - MICRO SPHERES

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO MARINE CATALOG HOMEPAGE **


MICRO SPHERES -- Used to bulk up or thicken epoxies and permit easier sanding after the epoxy cures. Sags more than Fumed Silica. DON'T BUY MICRO SPHERES IF YOUR SOURCE DOESN'T TELL YOU THE SPECIFIC GRAVITY OF THEIR PRODUCT (it's critical, like the octane rating of your gasoline)! Our 0.6 sg spheres are 15% lighter than most other generally available ceramic micro spheres!


NOW Available - EXTRA LITE micro spheres --- These micro spheres are half again as light as the micro spheres listed above (0.28 specific gravity, 70-75 micron dia.) The extra thin 'shell' results in a white micro sphere instead of a gray micro sphere color of thicker micro spheres. Lighter means thicker with less sagging and easier sanding. These are the premium, super light micro spheres available only from Progressive Epoxy Polymers!


NOTE - THIS PRODUCT (ESPECIALLY THE 0.28 SIZE) IS VERY FINE AND PUTS PARTICLES INTO THE AIR WHEN 'SCOOPING' OR TRANSFERRING- USE PROPER PROTECTION TO KEEP OUT OF FACE AND OFF CLOTHING. DON'T ORDER IF YOU HAVE DUST/BREATHING CONCERNS. NOTE: NOT AS BAD AS THE FUMED SILICA BUT STILL 'MESSY'

7) GRAPHITE

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO MARINE CATALOG HOMEPAGE **


Add 5+ ounces of graphite per quart of epoxy (15% by volume - other sources suggest 10% which is about 6 tablespoons per quart of epoxy) for a slicker, less frictional surface with improved wear resistance and durability. Improves temperature conductivity, electrical conductivity and reduces friction. Sometimes used on boat bottoms that get pulled up on beaches/rocks. Use on rudders and centerboards, and bottoms of dry sailed racing boats. Also sometimes used in seams on teak decks for traditional 'black seam' look. When mixed with epoxy turns the epoxy a very dark, somewhat shiny gray/black. Leaves 'pencil' dust when sanded. Priced cheaper than other suppliers.

8) COPPER POWDER

** EMAIL //// ph 603.435.7199 EST ////  BUY ONLINE (two different online stores) /// RETURN TO MARINE CATALOG HOMEPAGE **


Copper Powder - 50 micron leafing copper powder (actually includes some zinc in the formulation)

Copper powder is considered and environmental hazard and cannot be shipped legally without special training, permits and labeling. We have contracted with a metallic powders company that can legally ship 5 or 10 pound units of 60 micron leafing copper powder via UPS to Lower 48 USA locations only.

Copper powder is often added to our Low V Epoxy and applied to the boat hulls below the waterline. (be sure to use Leafing copper for this application).

Makes a nice 'metallic pigment' is varnish and other clear coatings.

 

ANTI FOULING: 5 pounds of this copper is added to a 1.5 gal unit of our Low V epoxy. This is generally enough for about a 27 ft boat. Boats in the 30 - 40 ft range generally require 10 or 15 pounds of copper and epoxy units. Boats in the 40 ft range generally require 20 pounds of copper and epoxy units.
