To Calculate the quantities of glassfibre, resin, flowcoat and catalyst the following method should be used:
Calculate the total area in m² of glassfibre required for the repair, allowing for overlaps, extra layers etc. 1m²= approx.10ft²
The ratio applies to all polyester resins, gelcoats, flowcoats etc. unless otherwise specified. Too much or too little catalyst will inhibit cure, while gel time is adversely affected by high humidity and low temperature.
General Instructions for working with glassfibre
Please refer to the labels on the resin, catalyst and acetone containers and note the hazardous nature of the products and the safety precautions to be taken when using them. For further information refer to the relevant MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets) – available on request.
Keep all materials out of the reach of Children.
