FLEX COAT HIGH-BUILD POLYMER ‘ONE COAT’ WRAP FINISH  INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE  ON RING WHIPPINGS ONLY.

1. Surface to be coated should be as level and dirt-free as possible.

2. Measure exactly equal amounts of Resin ‘A’ and Resin ‘B’ by volume. For best results and to ensure full hardness when set I recommend you use a set of syringes to get an accurate equal measure of both resins. Syringes are available for purchase in the rod building section of my website. Stir the two measured parts in a clean, dry container.

3.  Stir until the two parts are thoroughly blended. Do this slowly to prevent bubbles forming. If bubbles form allow the resin to settle for a few minutes and then burst them with a hair dryer or heat gun before applying the mixed resin. This can also make the resin thinner which aids penetration of your thread. 

4. Apply the Resin to whippings in a warm room between 21-30C (70-85F). Brush the resin evenly over the whippings with a stiffish bristle brush and  rotate the sections continuously to allow for even drying. 5-33 rpm if using a motor dryer.

SCS Flex Coat has a long pot life. To prolong use of the resin if you are concerned about the resin starting to cure, you can slow the curing process by placing the container on a bed of ice.

5. After about a 1/2- to 1 hour air bubbles created during saturation of the thread will rise to the surface.  A hair dryer on a hot setting in conjunction with your brush can be used for final bubble removal and levelling of the surface.

6. Initial curing takes approximately 6 hours, and the sections should be rotated for at least two thirds of this time at the above temperatures to prevent sagging of the resin. Final hardening depends on how high a temperature you have available The warmer the better.

Full curing after the mix has gelled can take up to 48 hours.

 

CAUTION: Resin ‘A’ contains epoxy bispherol and Resin ‘B’ contains a polyamine curing agent.  If contact with the skin occurs wash well with soap and water.  This product should be use in a well-ventilated area, and you should avoid breathing in the vapors.

FIRST AID: If Resin ‘A’ is swallowed, induce vomiting.  If Resin ‘B’ is swallowed, do not induce vomiting.

CALL A DOCTOR OR EMERGENCY SERVICES IMMEDIATELY.

EYES: Severe irritation to eyes.  In case of eye contact, flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes and get prompt medical attention.

PRO ULTIMATE GLOSS ROD FINISH INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE.

IMPORTANT. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU APPLY THIS PRODUCT IN A WELL VENTILATED ROOM!

1. Preparation is vital! Your final finish will only be as good as your preperation allows. The surface to be coated should be sanded lightly to smooth the surface and to make a key for the the new finish.

2, Ensure the surface is as grease and dirt-free as possible A tack cloth should be used to remove every trace of dust. Tack cloths are available for purchase in the rod building section of my website. A degreasing agent will ensure the area being coated is silicon free.

3. Measure out an amount of Part ‘A’ and Part‘B’ in a ratio of 25 to 1. That is 25 parts of the A component to 1 part of the B component. Do not use more part B than instructed or you will spoil the cure and ultimately run out of part B.

(Please note the bottle containing part B is only partially filled and contains enough to cure the whole Bottle of Part A)

For best results and to ensure a full cure and hardness of the resin when set, it is important that you mix exactly the correct quantities of Part A and Part B. The most accurate method of achieving this is to measure the amounts to be mixed by a volume ration of 25-1 That means 25 parts of the A bottle to 1 part of the B bottle. Syringes for accurate dispensing are available for purchase from my website. I you prefer thogh you can just add part B to the bottle of Part A and you will then have the exact mixing ratio.*

NOTE: Pro Ultimate Gloss can be stored for up to 6 months if thinned 10% with cellulose thinners if kept sealed in the Part A bottle, tightly capped in a freezer or refrigerator freezer box.

It will also keep for 1 month if stored in a cool refrigerator when thinned as above or approximatly 1 week if not thinned. Each pack can be supplied with an optional extra solvent proof empty mixing bottle at minimal cost to let you store any mixed resin safely for future use.

Before use let the cold resin warm up to room temperature. Shake the bottle for a few seconds and allow the contents to settle out the air bubbles before use.

Unused resin can be poured back into the bottle and stored for future use.

3.  Mix the two measured parts thoroughly in a clean, dry container. Stir until the two parts are thoroughly blended. Do this slowly to prevent any bubbles forming. Leave to settle for 5 minutes.  Pro Ultimate has a long pot life 2-3 hours. To prolong use of the resin if you are concerned about the mixture starting to cure, you can slow the curing process by cooling the mixture by placing the container on a cool pack, a bed of ice or in a shallow pot of cold water.

 

4. Apply the Resin to whippings or rod blank in a reasonably warm room of around 16-18c (65F max). To prevent dragging you must have the brush well charged with the resin. Brush the resin evenly over the rod shaft. For best brushing results a brush (not flex coat brushes) that has long soft bristles is best. An artists mop type brush is excellent for brush varnishing. Apply the resin in long even strokes. Pro Ultimate has excellent flow and drying characteristics and any brush marks will disappear once the resin cures and sets.

5. If using as a thread finish build up the coating with several light layers to the level rquired allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before applying the next coat.

Note this is thin light coating product. It is not a high build viscous rod wrap finish product along the line of Flex Coat or similar.

Pro Ultimate Gloss Spray Application Mixing Ratio.

IMPORTANT. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU APPLY THIS PRODUCT IN A WELL VENTILATED ROOM!

For spray application in an Air Brush or Spray Gun, Pro Ultimate can be thinned with Cellulose thinners up to a ratio of 20-1. This is a mixture equal to 20 parts of pre mixed Pro Ultimate to 1 part Cellulose thinners.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

5. Pro Ultimate is safe to touch in approximately 1.5 hours. At this point Pro Ultimate is only partially cured. Care must be taken as the surface finish can be marked easily at this point. Final hardening depends on how high a temperature you have available to leave the parts to dry in. The warmer the better. Full curing can take up to 24-48 hours.

6. If another coat is needed make sure the first coat is properly dry by leaving at least 24 hours to pass before re-coating. Lightly sand the surface with a fine grade wet and dry paper or 000 grade steel wool. Remove any traces of dust with a tack cloth. These are available for purchase in the rod building section Then re-apply as instructed in part 4 -5

FIRST AID: If Resin ‘A’ or‘B’ is swallowed, induce vomiting and CALL A DOCTOR OR EMERGENCY SERVICES IMMEDIATELY.

EYES: Severe irritation to eyes.  In case of eye contact, flush thoroughly with water for 15 minutes and get prompt medical attention.
