Yes, you can use it for gluing when thickened with silica or wood flour or encapsulation unthickened. I would using the slow hardener for everything.

I'm using 105/206 for everything - I prefer to have more working time which the 206 hardener allows compared to 205. In winter (UK) I have had to bring things into the house to cure fully but in summer my garage is often over 30 degrees (celcius) so the slow hardener is essential - same as it would be in Egypt. I'm using 406 colloidal silica as a thickener because West recommended this over 403 microfibres but the preference was minimal so you'll be OK with the microfibres.

Hey Dr. Ayman

I was wondering if you could help me out on where you were able to purchase the West Systems resins in Egypt.

I’m from Egypt as well and I can’t find a distributor for West Systems.

I’m looking forward to your reply.

Thanks
