Overview

Highly trusted by boat-builders, WEST SYSTEM Epoxy is ideal for use as an ultra-tough waterproof coating, a high-strength, gap-filling adhesive or an easily sanded surface filler. The Resin works in conjunction with a variety of WEST SYSTEM Hardeners, Fillers and Pumps for a wide range of applications.

The 105 Epoxy Resin is the base material of the WEST SYSTEM family. A clear, pale yellow, low-viscosity resin, 105 forms a high-strength solid with excellent moisture resistance, and is designed specifically for wood fiber, fiberglass, reinforcing fabrics and a variety of metals.

105 Resin

  • 105 Resin viscosity is approximately 1000 cP (centipoise) at 72°F (22°C).
  • Coverage for "A" resin containers: Porous surfaces: 90-105 sq. ft. (8.5-10m2)Non-porous surfaces: 120-135 sq. ft. (11-12.5 m2)
  • Coverage for "B" resin containers: Porous surfaces: 350-430 sq. ft. (32-40 m2)Non-porous surfaces: 462-550 sq. ft. (43-50 m2)

Combined with 205 Fast, 206 Slow and 209 Extra-Slow Hardeners, the cure time of 105 can be fine-tuned and adjusted for a wide range of temperatures. For coating and roller applications, it can be combined with 207 Coating Hardener, which provides excellent thin-film characteristics to flow out and self-level without "fisheyeing." Cures clear to light amber, so you can achieve a natural wood finish when coating with varnish.

205 Fast Hardener

  • Pot life at 72°F (22°C) - 9 to 12 minutes.
  • Cure to a solid state - 6 to 8 hours.
  • Cure to maximum strength - 1 to 4 days.
  • Minimum recommended temperature - 40°F (4°C).

206 Slow Hardener

  • Pot life at 72°F (22°C) - 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Cure to a solid state - 9 to 12 hours.
  • Cure to maximum strength - 1 to 4 days.
  • Minimum recommended temperature - 60°F (16°C).

209 Extra-Slow Hardener

  • Pot life at 72°F (22°C) - 40 to 50 minutes.
  • at 95°F (35°C) - 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Cure to a solid state at 72°F (22°C) - 20 to 24 hours.
  • at 95°F - 6 to 8 hours(35°C).
  • Cure to maximum strength at 72°F - 4 to 9 days.
  • Minimum recommended temperature - 70°F (21°C).

206 Coating Hardener

  • Pot life at 72°F (22°C) - 22 to 27 minutes.
  • Cure to a solid state - 9 to 12 hours.
  • Cure to maximum strength - 4 to 7 days.
  • Minimum recommended temperature - 60°F (16°C).

When combined with 404 High Density Filler (optimum strength) 407 Low Density Filler (optimum volume) or 406 Colloidal Silica Filler (optimum versatility), WEST SYSTEM epoxy will bridge large gaps and voids and can be easily sanded and shaped when cured. It has no strong solvent odor, making it far safer and more pleasant to work with.

Round out your set with the 300 Mini Pump Set, which includes one resin and two hardener pumps calibrated to dispense perfect ratios every time. Pumps mount directly on the resin and hardener containers, eliminating mess, and include extension tubes for various container sizes. NOTE: "A" and "B" sized resin containers correspond with "A" and "B" sized hardener containers. The 300 Mini Pumps can be configured to fit any size.

Richard G from Bozeman, MT Posted April 9, 2013
My daughter wanted a dining table made from rustic hickory. This raised two issues. First, it required a hard surface able to take damage because she wanted the table to be a project area for the kids in addition to a dining table. Second, rustic hickory is full of holes that need to be filled. Both the technical support at Rockler and at West was a great help. There is a white paper on the West web site that deals specifically with using their product on bare wood {105 and 207 to get a clear finish}. Filling the holes was easy once the ones that went clear through the wood were taped on the bottom of the table. Getting a smooth thin surface coat was also easy. Once that was done, I did a final sanding with 220 grit and applied a polyurethane finish over the epoxy. This avoided the shinny surface that would have resulted from the epoxy alone. I had never tried anything like this before and it worked very well – much easier than I had originally thought.

Todd H from Eau Claire, WI Posted December 7, 2010
Top quality wood epoxy, with very easy to use pumps dispensing just the right mix of resin and hardener. I use the 105 resin with the 205 and 206 hardeners, with excellent results when building custom electric guitars and basses. Great for building laminated necks for use in neck through basses and guitars. Superb for bonding bubinga, wenge, and other exotic woods. Simply use a credit card or auto body putty squeegee to spread coats on both surfaced to be joined, wait five minutes, then put more epoxy on one of these surfaces and clamp together. Dries hard and clear, with sound transfer properties superior to other wood glues. Also used as a grain filler on guitar/bass body surfaces, as a base for polyester finishes, etc. One tip when gluing more than two pieces of wood together at the same time 3-piece body laminates, 5-piece neck laminates, etc. is to dry fit the pieces, clamp them together, and drill four corner holes through the layers in waste areas, to receive 10d nails slid into the holes. Then when you later glue the pieces, slide these nails in the holes just prior to clamping them down, thereby insuring the pieces will not slide off-register when you begin to clamp them together. Slide the nails out when the clamping is completed, wait one day, and proceed to the next step in your project. Great stuff- thank you Rockler for carrying it! P.S. Yes, I would definitely recommend buying the mini-pump set along with the 105 resin and the hardener of your choice, from among the 200 series.
