Product Overview

BRT Optically Brightened Laminating Epoxy is a Super Sap® Formulation. This optically-brightened, clear laminating system is designed specifically for ultra-white cosmetic applications, such as surfboard laminations over EPS (polystyrene) or PU (polyurethane) foam. Based on Entropy Resins classic CLR – CLEAR Epoxy Resin, BRT Optically Brightened Laminating Epoxy Resin can be paired with all CLR Clear hardeners.

Available in EXTRA FAST (CLX Extra Fast Hardener), FAST (CLF Clear Fast Hardener), and SLOW (CLS Clear Slow Hardener) cure speeds. Hardener speeds can be combined to custom working times.

Extra Fast Cure: 18 min pot life, 2 HR tack-free time.

Fast Cure: 21 min pot life, 4 HR tack-free time.

Slow Cure: 43 min pot life, 8 HR tack-free time.
Two-part epoxy resin kits are comprised of BRT Optically Brightened Laminating Epoxy Resin and CLX Clear Extra Fast Hardener, CLF Clear Fast Hardener, or CLS Clear Slow Hardener.
For dark color substrate applications, we recommend our CLR formula.

Instructions

Application Tips:

  • For best results, measure the two components by weight within 5% of the recommended mix ratio.
  • Always mix product for at least two minutes, scraping the container to ensure complete mixing.
  • Use products in a controlled environment. Avoid high humidity and cold temperatures.
  • Amine blush, a by-product of the curing process, appears as a wax-like film cured epoxy and is more noticeable in cool, moist conditions. It can clog sandpaper and inhibit subsequent bonding.
  • Blush is water-soluble and easily removed with clean water (not solvent) and an abrasive pad.
  • For good adhesion, epoxy bonding surfaces should be clean, dry, and sanded.
  • If unfamiliar with the product, create smaller test samples before starting a larger-scale project.
