The system is suitable for the manufacturing of large structures and composite parts by wet layup with low viscosity and excellent wetting characteristics. The system is also suitable for filament winding applications and adaptable to VRTM. Parts can be released from a mold without post-curing.
BioPoxy 36 has been designed for coating and reinforcing fabric saturation in wood composite boat building.
This system exhibits excellent cured mechanical properties providing stronger, lighter, higher performance parts that can be sanded, shaped, machined, drilled, and tapped. It can be used in combination with EcoPoxy GelCoat or to make rigid molds and tooling.
BioPoxy 36 is commonly used for structural wood construction. It may be used for: all woods laminations, coating, scarfing, strip planking, as well as bonding in form of fillet joints applications when filled with wood flour and silica.
BioPoxy 36 is bio-based and safe to store around the house. Our resins can be used in educational institutions and schools.

Mixed epoxy will cure rapidly if left in pail. Have your mold or surface ready, and begin using BioPoxy immediately after mixing. Mix resin and hardener separately for 30 seconds. In a clean, dry container; combine (by volume) 4 parts resin with 1 part hardener, and mix thoroughly for 5 minutes.
The working area should be clean, dry, and free of dust or insects. BioPoxy 36 is compatible with most lay-up fabrics, including fiberglass, carbon-fiber, Kevlar, hemp fiber, and more. It can be applied using a variety of techniques, from rollers to spray applicators. BioPoxy 36 can be used in molds with or without vacuum-bagging, and also works great for repairs.
For best adhesion between layers, wait 2.5-24 hours between applications. If more than 24 hours has elapsed since previous application, it may be necessary to sand with 180 grit sandpaper, then wipe down lint-free cloth and alcohol before continuing.
15-25ºC (59-77ºF) with tightly sealed lids.
Epoxy has a shelf life of about 2 years providing it is properly stored in sealed containers.
