Handipack is a multi-purpose epoxy, supplied only in a small pack. It is designed for quick repair work and small scale construction jobs. The system is extremely reactive with a pot-life of just 8 minutes at 20C. It is therefore best suited to small tasks, and should not be applied in thicknesses exceeding 3mm.

The medium to low viscosity of the material enables it to be used for small laminating tasks, using lightweight glass fabrics, such as those from the SP's reinforcements range. The system's good clarity makes it a good sheathing matrix system.

Used as a coating, it cures rapidly at ambient temperatures to form a tough, clear film, with good moisture resistance. If the coating is to remain unpainted, the cured material should be overcoated with a UV-resistant varnish, since an unprotected epoxy coating will gradually yellow in sunlight.

By using the SP range of filler powders, a Handipack resin and hardener mix can be turned into a very effective adhesive or filling compound. The Handipack is available only in one size (250ml resin and 125ml hardener), with resin and hardener components each supplied with a dedicated dispensing pump that attaches to the container. The resin/hardener/pumps package is contained in a clear blister pack, that can stand on a display shelf or hang from a display rack.

Packaging: 375ml (250ml resin + 125ml hardener)

SP 106 is a simple to use, all-purpose epoxy which can be used for gluing, coating, laminating and filling. With its range of hardeners, and easy 5:1 mix ratio by volume, SP 106 provides a quick and convenient way of using one epoxy system for a very wide range of tasks. SP 106 has been established for over 20 years as the primary epoxy system for the manufacture and repair of wooden boats, and it is now widely used in many other woodworking applications from cabinet making to the manufacture of large wooden moulds. With its Extra Slow Hardener SP 106 can be used for jobs requiring a long working time, or in "tropical" conditions of high ambient temperatures.

In its unmodified form, SP 106 can be used as a clear coating for wood and other substrates, or for laminating lightweight glassfibre fabrics such as those used for reinforcing joints. When used for clear coating, cured SP 106 should be overcoated with a UV-resistant varnish. By using the SP range of filler powders, an SP 106 resin and hardener mix can be turned into a very effective adhesive or filling compound.

SP 320 is a solvent-free, clear epoxy coating that provides a high clarity, tough finish to whatever it is applied to. When used for coating wood, just a few coats will provide both protection and a depth of clarity that can only otherwise be achieved with many more coats of a conventional varnish. The epoxy coating will protect most surfaces from moisture ingress, and will also add strength to softwood surfaces. On horizontal surfaces, SP 320 may be poured on as a flow-coat, providing an instant, thick coating layer in just one application. If the coating is to remain unpainted, the cured material should be overcoated with a UV-resistant varnish since an unprotected epoxy coating will gradually yellow in sunlight.

Due to its low viscosity, and excellent wetting characteristics, SP 320 may also be used with lightweight glass reinforcements, to provide a clear, sheathing layer. When this is further coated with extra layers of SP 320, the result is a glass-reinforced clear coating which is exceptionally strong and hard-wearing.

Whilst primarily designed as a coating, SP 320 is completely solvent-free and so can be mixed with the SP Filler range to produce filling compounds, adhesives and fillet mixes. Some information about the filler range, and how to use the fillers, is contained in this data sheet. Further details can be found in the Filler Guide.

SP 115 is a low viscosity, ultra-clear epoxy laminating system. It has been designed for the manufacture of laminates such as those used in sail and surfboards which are to remain unpainted, and where a very clear finish is required. In this way colourful embedded graphics and attractive fabric weave styles can be kept visible. The material also contains UV filters which give the product its characteristic transparent pale violet/blue colour. These filters both enhance the sharpness of graphics, and, when overcoated with a suitable UV-screening PU varnish, will reduce the tendency of clear laminates to yellow after prolonged exposure to sunlight. The product is particularly suitable for use with glass fibre reinforcements which use fibre sizings optimised for wet-out and laminate clarity.

SP 115 also exhibits a high degree of toughness and water resistance, enhancing the strength and damage tolerance of the thin laminates typically used in sail and surfboard manufacture. Being completely solvent and styrene-free, polystyrene foam blanks can be safely used to produce boards of the lightest possible weight.

                      5kg (3,75kg resin + 1,25kg hardener)

Graphite powder is an unreactive pigment designed primarily to give black colouration to solvent free epoxy coating and adhesive systems. Being finely dispersed and giving high opacity, graphite powder can be added in small quantities to mixed resin-hardener systems. Care should be taken with black epoxy systems exposed to direct sunlight as the dark-coloured epoxy will absorb more heat than normal, which could take the temperature of the system above its Tg, causing it to soften.

Packaging: 0,75kg

SP Microballoons are hollow phenolic resin spheres which have a distinctive reddish/brown colouration. This makes them particularly useful for cosmetic fillet joints and fillers in wood construction, as well as structural adhesives for less demanding applications on softer timbers such as cedar. Although not as waterproof as glass bubbles, microballoons are often preferred for their excellent sanding characteristics. Microballoons are not normally used with polyester or vinylester resins because they can be subject to styrene attack which may cause the spheres to collapse.

When storing microballoons, it is particularly important to exclude air as they readily absorb atmospheric moisture which will affect the performance of the filled mix.

Packaging: 0,1kg (1ltr approximately)
                     0,3kg (3ltr approximately)
                     5kg (50ltr approximately)

SP Glass Bubbles are hollow glass spheres with a more variable particle size than microballoons. Being composed chemically of glass, they are physically harder than microballoons and filled resin mixes are noticeably more difficult to sand. However, glass bubbles produce a more waterproof filler mix and are often used on below-waterline applications on boats. Being significantly less expensive than microballoons they are often preferred if easy sanding performance is not of prime importance. They can be mixed with microballoons in any proportion for colour purposes.

SP Microfibres are very fine wood-cellulose fibres commonly used to create structural adhesives for bonding both wood and grp.

Because any low viscosity resin system is readily absorbed into a porous surface such as wood, an unfilled adhesive may tend to give a "dry joint". With their absorbent properties, microfibres can retain a significant quantity of adhesive within a joint and limit resin absorption into the surrounding surface, thus ensuring an adequate resin supply for adhesion. Where the strongest bond is required, e.g. timber scarf joints, microfibres should always be used in preference to hollow sphere-types of filler.

For bonding parallel to the grain with lower density, lower strength timbers, such as cedar or obeche, a microballoon mix is often adequate, and is of lower density.

SP Colloidal Silica is an agent which is used to control the thixotropy or "sag" characteristics of a resin system. By adding colloidal silica powder in varying amounts to a resin mix containing the other filler types mentioned, the handling and flow characteristics can be controlled. Relatively small quantities added to a resin mix containing glass bubbles or microballoons will give non-sag properties and impart easier handling.

Colloidal silica is also used with microfibres to produce a mix suitable for use as a high strength, non-sagging structural adhesive, particularly for non-absorbent materials such as grp. The inclusion of colloidal silica has the effect of increasing the hardness of the resulting mix which will create more difficulty when sanding. For this reason colloidal silica is usually added in the minimum quantities to any mix for which sanding is anticipated. In some applications this feature can be used to an advantage, for example to create a hard wearing edge or surface.

SP Epoxy Pigment pastes are reactive pigments designed primarily to give opacity to solvent free epoxy coating and adhesive systems. Because these pigments are reactive, they can replace a proportion of the volume of the resin component in the resinhardener mix, up to a maximum of 10%. The pigmented resin component is then mixed with the hardener of the system at the normal mix ratio for that system. The properties of the cured system will be similar, but not identical, to those shown in a particular system's data table.

Epoxy pigments are available in white, grey and black, each colour being available in two sizes, 0.5kg and 2kg. If other colour surfaces of epoxy coatings or adhesives are required, then these are best achieved by overcoating with a suitable coloured polyurethane paint. Care should be taken with black epoxy systems exposed to direct sunlight as the dark-coloured epoxy will absorb more heat than normal, which could take the temperature of the system above its Tg, causing it to soften.

Packaging: 0,5kg, 2kg

SP Fast Solvent is an extremely fast evaporating solvent which is recommended for cleaning all types of surfaces prior to applying a solvent- free product such as SP 320, SP 106 and Handipack whether bonding, coating, filling or laminating. SP Fast Solvent will clean brushes and equipment if the epoxy is still in a liquid state, but if the epoxy has started to gel, it will no longer be effective.

Packaging: 1ltr, 5ltr

SP Cleaning Fluid is designed specifically for use on the surface of cured epoxies to remove "by-product". This is a "sticky" or "greasy" film which can develop particularly in cold curing conditions or in high humidity environments. SP Cleaning Fluid can be used with SP 106 or Handipack, but is not recommended for use with SP 320 epoxy.

Unlike other solvents such as SP Fast Solvent, SP Cleaning Fluid will not soften or attack plastic surfaces or those recently coated with epoxy. As a result, SP Cleaning Fluid is not effective as a brush cleaner or for removing semi-cured epoxy from brushes, surfaces or equipment. However, it may be used for cleaning individual resin or hardener components from plastic mini-pumps without causing damage to the plastic components. SP Cleaning Fluid is therefore ideal as a surface cleaner for all types of plastic surfaces, for cleaning glass and for general grime or dust removal.

Packaging: 1ltr, 5ltr

Each pump body of the pair is identical and will fit either container of the SP 1kg solvent-free resin systems SP106, SP320 and SP115. However, each pump of the pair is fitted with an extension tube of correct length to reach exactly to the bottom of one container, so that there is a "resin pump" and a "hardener pump". Each pump dispenses the same quantity of liquid (approx. 5ml) and therefore correct ratio is made by a number of strokes equivalent to the mix ratio on the resin pump (eg 5 strokes for 5:1 by volume mix ratio) for every one made on the hardener pump.

Each SP Maxipump is designed to attach to only one container of a SP resin/hardener system. Therefore there are several pump sets each comprising of a matching pair of pumps. Each pump set is sold for a specific size of a specific resin system - they are available for the SP solvent-free resin systems SP 106, SP 320 and SP 115. Each pump of the pair is identified as the hardener or resin pump, each fitted with an extension tube of correct length to reach exactly to the bottom of its container.

Unlike Handipumps or Minipumps, one stroke of each pump dispenses the correct ratio of resin and hardener. Large volumes can be dispensed quickly and easily by the same number of multiple strokes on each pump.

Syringes are "medical grade" to ensure the absence of mould release or other contamination that could affect the curing process of the resin/hardener. Most useful for dispensing resin or hardener from the smaller sizes (<5 litre) of container. It is recommended that the 50cc syringe is reserved for resin use and the 10cc syringe for hardener use. If the same size syringe is used for both resin and hardener then separate syringes will be required and each must be clearly labelled by the user with the component with which it is to be used. Do not use resin syringe for hardener and vice versa!

A clear plastic pot of 500ml working capacity (800ml maximum), with 50ml graduations marked on the side. The tough plastic of the pot can be flexed without cracking - in this way cured epoxy left in the pot can be removed to allow the pot to be re-used. The mixing pot must be clean and free of "old" epoxy for the graduations to be accurate.

Suitable for mixing in SP Mixing Pots, these are smooth, flat "spatula" style wooden mixing sticks, approximately 15 x 2cm. They are of "medical" grade to reduce the incidence of splintering and to minimise contaminating material leeching from the wood during mixing. The ends of the stick are shaped to allow easy manufacture of fillet joints for thin panels.
Available only in boxes of 100.

Disposable Foam Rollers are suitable for liquid solvent-free systems, such as the laminating systems and un-filled multi-purpose systems. They are not recommended for use with solvent-based systems as the foam is slowly attacked by the solvents. Similarly, they are not recommended for use with high viscosity systems as these will eventually tear the foam.

Eposeal 300 is a solvent-based, low viscosity epoxy sealer. It has been developed primarily for use on wood but can also be used on other materials such as GRP, stone, ferrocement, brick, etc. Eposeal 300 has an extremely low viscosity which ensures that the product achieves rapid and deep penetration of porous surfaces. Once Eposeal 300 material has soaked into a surface, the adhesive nature of the epoxy base will help to consolidate and strengthen that surface. The resultant epoxy sealing layer provides a high adhesion and moisture resistant base for any type of paint, varnish or epoxy coating system. For example, many woodworking applications combine the penetrating power of the Eposeal 300, with the thick, clear coating capability of SP 320 to produce a strong, highly protective, deep gloss surface on wood. The solvents used in Eposeal 300 evaporate quickly once the product is brushed out, so that the subsequent layers of Eposeal 300 can be applied in quick succession. Providing the lid is replaced on the mixing pot, the long pot life of Eposeal 300 means that just one mix can be used for multiple coats.

Packaging: 1 L, 5 L
