MAS Low-Tox

Postby Bill Edmundson » Sun Aug 17, 2014 10:08 am

I have just tried this product. First, I've had no reaction to it so far. Second, This stuff is SLOW. At 6 hours it was not tacky but it was still soft. Temperature was low 90's/upper 80's. It also has light green tint. Clear but green.

Take Two.

I just tried to do some fabric , dynel. This hardener is fairly thick, viscose. I does not wet out fabric very well. I like it for gluing. But, it doesn't seem to wet out well.

I've been using the low viscosity MAS for wetting out 6oz glass on both the Titan (3 years ago) and on the gentry this past spring with no problems.

I have the low viscosity resin. But, the Low Tox Hardener is very thick. It is a little difficult to work glass. The good news is that it really fills the weave.

Bill; I just did some encapsulating on the Gentry and added 10 percent methyl hydrate to the mix (permitted according to MAS) and it brushed out really nice.

Thanks. My jug doesn't have a back label with that info. I'll give it a try. It really needs thinning.

Like Bill, I have found this stuff to be slooooow. Even after 8 hours at 60-70 degrees, low humidity, it is still tacky. I used West Systems before and done recall this problem....this is slowing down the build. I think low tox or not, its time to make a change.
