Clear Laminating Epoxy

From: 71.29

Clear, general use, laminating epoxy for composites, coating, and adhesive applications. CLR is a Super Sap® Formulation.

Product Overview

CLR Clear Laminating Epoxy is our flagship, high-performance, clear-coating epoxy system. A Super Sap® Formulation, the CLR system is a water clear, UV-stabilised epoxy system for applications that require a low-colour, low-yellowing epoxy such as high-colour applications. This system features a quick air-release and world-class UV resistance package. CLR works with multiple hardeners to match your working parameters. It has an ideal viscosity for a wide range of applications that use hand layup techniques with fast, room-temperature cures.

Available in CLX (Extra Fast), CLF (Fast), and CLS (Slow) cure speeds. Hardener speeds can be combined to customise working times.

CLX Extra-Fast Cure: 18 min pot life, 2 hr tack-free time, recommended Full Cure 7 days @ 25°C.

CLF Fast Cure: 21 min pot life, 4 hr tack-free time, recommended Full Cure 7 days @ 25°C.

CLS Slow Cure: 43 min pot life, 8 hr tack-free time, recommended Full Cure 7 days @ 25°C, Post cure recommended.

Two-part epoxy resin kits are comprised of CLR Clear Laminating Epoxy Resin and CLX (EXTRA FAST), CLF (FAST), or CLS (SLOW) Hardener.

For white substrate applications, we recommend our BRT Optically Brightened Laminating Epoxy Resin formula.

Instructions

Application Tips:

  • For best results, measure the two components by weight at the correct mix ratio.
  • Always mix product for at least two minutes, scraping the container to ensure complete mixing.
  • Try to use the product in a controlled temperature environment within the optimal specifications of the product. Avoid high humidity or cold ambient temperatures.
  • For optimal bonding performance, be sure the surface is dry and free of dirt, debris, and oils. Mechanical preparation of the surface from sanding is highly recommended.
  • Build sample coupons using proposed materials and processes to fully understand the curing characteristics of the epoxy in your working environment and compatibility of the epoxy with other materials.
