Description

G/flex Epoxy Adhesive belongs in every boater's repair kit. Get a waterproof, flexible bond on plastic, fiberglass, aluminum, wood and more.

 

  • The 650-8 kit contains 4 oz. each of viscous liquid G/flex 650 resin and hardener. Mixing ratio is 1:1.
  • Mixed G/flex 650 is of a heavy "syrup" consistency. It will run off a vertical surface. 650 can be thickened with inert filling materials.
  • G/flex is a product of West System, a division of Gougeon Brother's, Inc. The Gougeon brothers have been using epoxy resins in boat building and repair for some 50 years.
  • It makes structural bonds that can absorb the stresses of expansion, contraction, shock and vibration.
  • In addition to its superior bonding to many different materials and its ability to bond dissimilar materials, G/flex is much more flexible than other epoxies. This is an excellent property for boat building and repair.
  • Polyethylene (HDPE) is a common kayak and canoe material. Its molecular structure resists gluing by most adhesives. G/flex solves the problem; it bonds well to polyethylene and ABS plastics.
  • After mixing, at 72 degrees F, you have about 45 minutes to apply the mixture before it begins to gel.
  • You have up to 75 minutes to assemble and clamp parts after the adhesive is applied. It cures to a solid in 3-4 hours, to a workable cure in 7-10 hours, and cures to its full strength in one to two days. It cures faster in warmer temperatures and slower in colder ones.
  • Clean up is simple. Wipe up spills with absorbent materials. Clean residue before it cures, with alcohol or acetone.
  • G/flex adheres tenaciously to difficult-to-glue hardwoods, both tropical and domestic varieties.
  • It has the ability to glue damp woods. It can be used on wet surfaces, even underwater when applied with specific techniques.
  • G/flex does indeed belong in every boater's repair kit. The more you use it, the more uses you'll find for it - with your boating gear and other sporting and household items. It's easy to mix and use. The instructions that come with the kit are top notch.

You are going to be happy with your purchase.  Trust me, I know these things.  However, if your new gear doesn’t bring you joy, like a cold banana smoothie on a hot summer’s day, then return it for a replacement or a refund.  Don’t ruin it for the next person – make sure your item is unused and returned without destroying the packaging.  We’re not animals here!

I’m feeling generous so I’m going to give you 90-days to make a return.  Plenty of time for your mate to forgot you purchased it then you can casually slip it into your gear bag and forget all about returning it in the first place.  No judgment from this monkey.

Don’t be cheap…I can’t accept returns on clearance or consignment items.  Even this monkey has its limits.  Just give it to your best mate as a birthday or holiday gift.  Like they say around here…pass the adventure on!

If I’ve left anything out then you can catch the details at:

Ok, enough from me, now buy the thing already.
