Thixotrope is added so that the viscosity of Jesmonite can be adjusted to the users preference. This is particularly useful when applying a Gel Coat into a mould. By adding Thixotrope it is possible to apply a controlled 1mm – 3mm layer of material without it running off the mould surface. This also prevents glass reinforcements from showing at the face of laminated objects. Thixotrope can also be used to make the material into a paste, which can be used as a repair filler, and jointing paste for bonding two laminates together.
