  • Talc Fillers

    2.5039.80 (ex vat)

    Talc is an all-purpose inexpensive filler powder which is used to make resin into a bodyfiller. Also used in resin casting to reduce cost, shrinkage and heat generated by resin curing. Catalyst should be added before filler powder. Dark grey in colour.

  • Carborundum grit – Slip Resistant Grit

    7.98119.75 (ex vat)

    Carborundum grit is used to produce an extremely hardwearing slip resistant surface. It can come pre-mixed Slip Resistant Topcoat or sprinkled onto a final flocoat or resin surface while still wet (pre-mixed looks better). Especially useful on workboats where abrasion to the GRP laminate is caused by ropes and chains. Also on Roofs/ Balconies and steps where a degree of slip resistant is required. Supplied as Grade 24 (medium grade). Other grades (Fine 36 grade & Course 12 grade) are available on request.

    White Virgin Aluminium Oxide – Slip Resistant Grit

    8.90128.60 (ex vat)

    White Aluminium Oxide

    White aluminum oxide is used as a durable and efficient non-skid media. The white color minimizes the ‘darkening’ or ‘dilution’ of colored coatings. The angular shape of aluminum oxide makes it an ideal grit for use in a variety of non-skid applications including concrete floors, stairs and boat decks. The inert nature of aluminum oxide allows it to be used with a variety of coating materials. The hardness of the grit particle creates a durable, long-lasting surface that requires minimal maintenance.

    The grit is used to produce an extremely hardwearing slip resistant surface. It can come pre-mixed or sprinkled onto a final flocoat or resin surface while still wet (pre-mixed looks better). Especially useful on workboats where abrasion to the GRP laminate is caused by ropes and chains. Also on Balconies and steps where a degree of slip resistant is required.

    Epoxy Filler – SP Microfibers 500gm

    23.50 19.86 (ex vat)

    SP Microfibres are very fine wood-cellulose fibres commonly used to create structural adhesives for bonding both wood and grp.

    Because any low viscosity resin system is readily absorbed into a porous surface such as wood, an unfilled adhesive may tend to give a ‘dry joint’. With their absorbent properties, microfibres can retain a significant quantity of adhesive within a joint and limit resin absorption into the surrounding surface, thus ensuring an adequate resin supply for adhesion. Where the strongest bond is required, e.g. timber scarf joints, microfibres should always be used in preference to hollow sphere-types of filler.

    For bonding parallel to the grain with lower density, lower strength timbers, such as cedar or obeche, a microballoon mix is often adequate, and is of lower density. Weight – 500gm

    Technical Details;

    Composition: Milled bleached cellulose wood pulp
    Appearance: White ‘fluffy’ fibrous consistency
    Particle Size: 200 – 300 microns
    Particle Density: Particles absorb resin
    Bulk Density: 100g/litre approx.

    Polyester + Epoxy Filler – Colloidal Silica 250gm

    29.87 26.74 (ex vat)

    Colloidal Silica is a feather weight thixotropic powder, which is used to thicken resin & gelcoat and for bonding & filleting applications.

    By adding colloidal silica powder in varying amounts to a resin mix containing the other filler types mentioned, the handling and flow characteristics can be controlled. Relatively small quantities added to a resin mix containing glass bubbles or microballoons will give non-sag properties and impart easier handling.

    Colloidal silica is also used with microfibres to produce a mix suitable for use as a high strength, non-sagging structural adhesive, particularly for non-absorbent materials such as grp. The inclusion of colloidal silica has the effect of increasing the hardness of the resulting mix which will create more difficulty when sanding. For this reason colloidal silica is usually added in the minimum quantities to any mix for which sanding is anticipated. In some applications this feature can be used to an advantage, for example to create a hard wearing edge or surface. For General Health Information see section on hazards.

    Epoxy Filler – Glass Bubbles 300gm

    34.76 29.86 (ex vat)

    SP Glass Bubbles are hollow glass spheres with a more variable particle size than microballoons. Being composed chemically of glass, they are physically harder than microballoons and filled resin mixes are noticeably more difficult to sand. However, glass bubbles produce a more waterproof filler mix and are often used on below-waterline applications on boats. Being significantly less expensive than microballoons  they are often preferred if easy sanding performance is not of prime importance. They can be mixed with microballoons in any proportion for colour purposes.

    Technical Details:

    Composition: ‘C’ Glass
    Appearance: White powder
    Particle Size: 40 – 80 microns
    Particle Density: 200g/litre approx.
    Bulk Density: 100-150g/litre approx.

    Epoxy Filler – Microballoons 300gm

    39.85 32.50 (ex vat)

    Gurit SP Microballons are a phenolic resin filler agent that can be mixed into epoxy system mixes to produce a redish/brown colouration for cosmetic filler in wood construction.

    SP Microballoons are hollow phenolic resin spheres which have a distinctive reddish/brown colouration. This makes them particularly useful for cosmetic fillet joints and fillers in wood construction, as well as structural adhesives for less demanding applications on softer timbers such as cedar. Although not as waterproof as SP Glass Bubbles, SP Microballoons are often preferred for their excellent sanding characteristics.

    SP Microballoons are not normally used with polyester or vinylester resins because they can be subject to styrene attack which may cause the spheres to collapse.

    When storing SP Microballoons, it is particularly important to exclude air as they readily absorb atmospheric moisture which will affect the performance of the filled mixture.

    SP Glass Bubbles and SP Microballoons can be mixed in any proportion for colour purposes.
