Details

Highest Strength Room Temp Epoxy

System 2000 Epoxy Resin is a medium viscosity, light amber laminating resin that is designed to offer the highest ultimate strength for a room temperature epoxy. It is used for fabricating high strength parts and other demanding structural applications. Use this system to maximize the physical properties of carbon fiber, KEVLAR®, and fiberglass laminates! Test results superior mechanical properties over other room temperature epoxies. This epoxy system does not contain methylene dianiline (MDA), or any other potentially harmful aniline derivatives. Typical applications include aircraft and sail plane skins and structural components, auto bodies, radomes and prototype parts. Its low viscosity and great handling characteristics make it a favorite in the shop too!

Three high performance hardener systems are available for the System 2000 resin. 20 minute, 60 minute and 120 minute pot life versions are all options. This added variety allows the fabricator to select the system best suited to the size, complexity, or time-frame of the project. Simple parts which need to be demolded quickly should use the 20 minute hardener. Larger and more complex parts can use either of the other hardeners.

Vacuum Bagging applications would typically warrant the longest 2 hour working time. As with any epoxy system, adhere to the proper mix ratios and maintain an adequate curing temperature of at least 77 degrees F.

Heat will probably be necessary when constructing thin laminates using the 2060 hardener and will be required when using the 2120. The cure time will be cut in half for every 10 degrees F that the temperature is raised above 77 degrees F.

Purchase a single cure, or buy resin in bulk and order a variety of hardeners to keep on hand for any project. First, select the amount of System 2000 Resin that you will need. Then select your needed curing agent or combination of curing agents. Remember, these are not exact kits, so be sure you have enough Hardener!

Chopped strand mat contains a binder which prevents proper bonding with any epoxy resins. Use our polyester or vinyl ester resins with chopped strand mat.

Epoxy resin

Aug 11, 2022  |  By Peter Ratti

I am very happy with your epoxy resin. I like to keep a quart on hand for Pwc repair. Your twenty minute system makes the use of polyester resin unnecessary. My only negative comment is that I had a quart set up during storage in the cabinet.

Just re-did the floor and added some transom braces in my 87 checkmate. I got the 60 minute hardener and it all layed flat and did a really good job. Sands nice.

Absolutely amazing product

update and recant of bad review
Feb 23, 2021  |  By John TerHAAR
Talked to a Fiberglast rep today . She told me how to correct the issue I had with the resin. It crystalized possibly when it was delivered because of the cold . I have never seen this in my 45+ years working with resins. 2 hours of heat and lots of stirring . we were good as gold. I'm happy this ended well and they are my go to for composites.

good products for a big job

Fibreglast provides knowledge and advice as well as good materials for my car body project. I use 2000 resin, 2020, 2060 and 2120 hardeners, 1098 & 1099 surface epoxies, and 10 oz and 20 oz cloth. Resin saturates cloth easily. Surface epoxies give a smooth surface to both molds and finished parts.

The hardener I ordered showed up quickly and in good shape.

Awesome product. Used extensively building a kayak mold. Wets out fast and pot life is great. No heat needed for curing.

This was first time using the System 2000 Epoxy resin. The product was very easy to mix and the 20 minute hardener time was spot on! I plan to place another order for System 2000 Epoxy Resin in the very near future.

System 2000 Best Resin out there
Apr 4, 2016  |  By sam
Results have been so great with all my components that I never even bothered trying any other resin than the system 2000. Cures rock hard, doesn't haze over time. I have made some very strong components with this resin and will continue using since it has been perfect... thanks again for quality composite materials!

Great product. Your chemistry is right on point. I wouldn't order anywhere else.

Awesome epoxy, very easy to use and VERY strong. I've used both the 20- and 60-minute hardeners and had great success with this product. I have also mixed silica, glass microspheres, and 1/4" chopped fiberglass with this resin and achieved great results.

Excellent resin

I'm very pleased with this resin for its high strength, low weight and reliability. It's easy to handle and helps to achieve impressive results at low cost. Perfect choice for model aircraft applications.

System 2000 epoxy resin

Very good product. I have used this in the past and was always very pleased with it. I use it for covering my rc airplanes with 3/4 oz glass and it works great for this. I have also used it with carbon fiber tow to make landing gear for a F4U Corsair which turned out incredibly strong. This is the only epoxy I know of that you can't use wax paper as a release film. I have used The West system at work for some things and you can use wax paper to lay down so the epoxy won't stick to it. Not so with System 2000, this stuff even sticks to wax paper. Another plus is the high service temps you can get just with room temp cures. Other epoxies are around 136 F to 164 F but I think this is around minimum 186 F and with certain hardeners around 200 F. This is the only epoxy I buy. The shelf life of only 6 months is a con but I try to plan stuff so that I have plenty of layup work so I use most of it up before it expires.
