WEST SYSTEM Six10® is a thickened epoxy adhesive with point-and-shoot convenience.
The unique single cartridge design incorporates 2 moulded chambers that separate the pre-thickened resin and hardener and allow accurate dispensing at the correct mix ratio. An interchangeable co-axial mixing wand ensures thorough blending of the 2 components and precision application of the adhesive.
WEST SYSTEM Six10® is perfect for applying a simple fillet for stitch and glue boat construction, fibreglass laminate repair and general bonding and proves practical for long and complicated assemblies of a multitude of appropriately prepared materials.
WEST SYSTEM Six10® has a viscosity high enough to resist sagging but can still wet out a surface without pre-coating, thanks in part to a property called shear thinning, or a reduction in viscosity as it is mixed. The shear thinning property enables users to wet out light to moderate-weight reinforcing fabrics such as fibreglass and carbon fibre.
WEST SYSTEM® products have a long-established history and are still acclaimed as the best premier marine-grade epoxy solutions in the industry, backed by over five decades of continuous epoxy innovation and expertise.
Those epoxy users already familiar with our WEST SYSTEM® product range will appreciate the convenience and cleanliness of WEST SYSTEM Six10®, saving time and excess waste.
