Scott Bader 2-85000 GP Resin x 225kg
General Purpose Laminating Resin. 225kg (£1.90 p/kg)
Our main resin is a Pre-Accelerated, LSE laminating resin for general moulding.
IBC’s also available.
Crystic 2-8500PA is a low styrene emission, pre-accelerated, orthophthalic polyester resin, which rapidly wets out reinforcements. It is a general purpose resin and has been specifically designed for non-critical and industrial applications. It is not suitable for boat construction, chemical resistance or mouldings in contact with food products.
Crystic 2-8500PA is available in several colours and the information contained in this leaflet also applies to these pigmented versions.
Crystic 2-8500PA should be allowed to attain workshop temperature (18°C – 20°C) before use. Stir well by hand, or with a low shear mixer to avoid aeration, and then allow to stand to regain thixotropy. Crystic 2-8500PA requires only the addition of catalyst to start the curing reaction. The recommended catalyst is Catalyst M (or Butanox M50), which should be added at 1% into the resin. (Please consult our Technical Service Department if other catalysts are to be used). The catalyst should be thoroughly incorporated into the resin with a low shear mechanical stirrer where possible.

The resin, mould and workshop should be at, or above, 15°C before curing is carried out.
Crystic 2-8500PA is designed for hand laminating and would normally be used with chopped strand mat.
Higher specification reinforcements are not recommended.
The addition of filler or pigments can adversely affect the hardening of the resin. Users should evaluate the effect of any potential additives before use.
Satisfactory laminates for most non-critical applications can be made with Crystic 2-8500 PA by curing at workshop temperature (20°C).
