Kwik Kick Epoxy

The fastest setting hand lay up epoxy yet.  As fast or faster than polyester resins in many production scenerios. Mimicks polyester resin in curing by thickening in a similar way but without the hard gel time. This system has only one speed, FAST.  Also compatible with our other systems so this can be dropped into production when speed is nessesary.
 
Some examples: 
Ambient Temperature       70F (21C)         80F (27C)        90F (32C) 
 
Pot Life
Kwik Kick                          18 min.            14 min.           11 min.
RR 2000/2100F                  22 min.            17 min.           13 min. 
RR 2000/2100S                  40 min.            30 min.          22 min.
 
Set Time - Tack Free          
Kwik Kick                          1.5 hrs.           45 min.           30 min.
RR 2000/2100F                    3 hrs.            2 hrs.             60 min.        
RR 2000/2100S                    6 hrs.            4.5 hrs.           3 hrs.
 
 
Some typical working aspects and tips:
 
1. The low viscosity wets out fast and a fast lock time virtually eliminates resin drain but doesn't preculde the continued ability to move the resin and continue work for the entire pot life and beyond.  This system stays where it's put better than any other, even on vertical and curved surfaces.
 
2. UV stability is excellent with little or no discoloration in over 1000 hours.
 
3. This system contains UV absorber which allows it to be used in conjunction with sensitive substrates. I.E. Urethane foam, PVC foam, light colored woods, etc.
 
4. KK is significantly stronger than all other epoxies tested (numbers forthcoming)
 
5. Low viscosity also facilitates easier and more thorough mix.  2 to 1 ratio is easy.
 
6. Compatible with RR Additive F for easy sanding and finishing.
 
7. For surfboards KK is compatible with all modern fin box systems with no foam meltdown.  Very low exotherm considering it's speed.
 
8. Excellent flex charateristics while still maintaining excellent dent resistance.
 
9. During initial tack free state KK can be hand molded using a hard roller.  This saves significant sanding.  Bubbles in laminates can be pushed or pinched out during this stage as well.
