The excellent gap filling adhesive properties of EPAR 802 make it suitable for a wide variety of applications including the following:

  • Laminating and jointing of fibrous cement sheet.

  • General concrete repair and levelling.

  • Production of exposed aggregate finish by bonding pebbles to a variety of surfaces.

  • Tile adhesive.

  • Smoothing and patching timber, concrete or metal surfaces prior to painting. Can be trowelled to a smooth finish.

  • Filling & smoothing screw holes in fibre cement sheets.

What can it be applied to?

Product

EPAR GP

EPAR GP is a high strength, two-part epoxy glue. It is non-shrink and suitable for use where gap filling properties are required. EPAR GP having grease like viscosity, can be feathered out or applied up to 10mm thick on vertical surfaces. EPAR GP is suitable for service in either dry or wet conditions.

A fast curing (5-minute pot life) version of EPAR GP is also available.

What's it used for?

EPAR GP is suitable for use as a gap filling adhesive or filler for wood, concrete, steel, ceramics etc. Fields of use include:

  • Manufacture of timber joinery and furniture. Boat building.

  • Repair and manufacture of formwork for concrete.

  • Bonding and stopping of fibrous cement sheet.

EPAR GP is especially suited as a general woodworking glue for building purposes.

EPAR GP 5 minute is recommended for applications where a very fast setting epoxy adhesive is required - for example, adhering kitchen benches to timber supports.

What can it be applied to?

EPAR GP can be applied to a wide range of substrates including wood, steel, concrete, fibre cement board, etc

Limitations

EPAR GP is not suitable for applications where the epoxy is directly exposed to weathering. Epoxy at the surface of a joint subjected to weathering will discolour/chalk over time but this will not affect the performance of the epoxy within the joint.

Not suitable for bonding plastic products.

Epoxy Fairing

To fill and fair all types of substrates

Product

FAIRFILL

FAIRFILL is a two-part, light and sandable epoxy fairing and filling compound. FAIRFILL is non-shrinking, nonporous and cold curing thereby allowing application in all temperatures. FAIRFILL is easily sanded using sandpaper, a power sander or other woodworking/finishing tools.

What's it used for?

The excellent finishing properties of FAIRFILL combined with ease of use make it an extremely versatile product for smoothing or filling surfaces  before the application of a subsequent coating or paint. FAIRFILL is non-shrink and is easily sanded and finished.

As FAIRFILL is a cold-curing epoxy, curing will take place at temperatures down to 0 °C. There is no need to ensure that the ambient temperature or substrate temperature is above 15°C as is common with most other epoxy products.

What can it be applied to?

Common uses for FAIRFILL are:

  • Filling screw holes in fibre cement sheet.

  • Boats – smoothing hulls and other surfaces.

  • Repairing formwork.

  • Housing applications (timber poles, weatherboards, wallboards, etc.

  • Model making.

FAIRFILL is particularly suitable for filling gaps and holes in fibre cement sheets.

Limitations

FAIRFILL is not suitable for application to plastic substrates. FAIRFILL should not be used in applications subject to wear as, being sandable, it will be damaged by trafficking.

FAIRFILL may be used as an adhesive in appropriate applications (such as gluing timber back into weatherboards, etc), but a more suitable EPAR epoxy system should be used for more demanding applications.
