Fibreglass resin catalyst - any easy thinners available? Answered
I am in the need to make a quick decision before the weekend.
A local shop is closing down and I was offer a massive amount of good quality resin for price that you could call stealing LOL
Only problem is that there is no catalyst included as the owner realised the container had a leak the stuff was long gone.
Buying the required amount of catalyst down here so I consider making my own.
For obvious reasons I won't go into the details of making...
Problem on my end is that the catalyst needs to be thinned down to 40-60% to prevent unwanted results handling and using it.
All the commercial products use thinners based on very hard to obtain organic solvents.
From what I could read they are added to prevent mis-use of the product, which means there might be other solvents that work for the thinning without affecting the resin or curing process in a negative way.
Big question: What type of easy to obtain solvent can I use for this without compromising the resin or curing?
And before anyone asks:
No I won't tell you - if you don't know what I am talking about you don't need to ask on how to make it as I won't tell.
And no again, I am not looking for ways to make the resin thinner - I need to dilute the pure catalyst to make it useable and safe.
My sole intention is make a good deal but unless I find a suitable thinner I won't buy close to 300 liters of resin....
