Blending Speeds

Gurit have a range of solvent free epoxy laminating and coating products, and each of these products has a range of hardener speeds. This allow the applicator to select the appropriate gel/cure time for their application, and the conditions they are working under. But what if the slow will take too long and the fast will not give you enough time? The Answer - blend the hardeners This allows you to have ultimate control over the gel-time, working time or cure time you require. As with all things this is not quite as simple as it wold first appear due to the exothermic properties of solvent free epoxy systems – but we can help you with this. Epoxies as they cure generate heat as the resin and hardener chemistry polymerise, that is go hard. The greater percentage of Fast hardener the more this is going to be noticeable, and as…

Antal Ring - what are they for?

What are they for? Rings replace blocks. And not just furling lead blocks, but vang cascades, too, backstay's, or jib sheet leads. Since their first commercialization, in 2007, under the name of Low Friction Rings, they literaly invaded the sailing market. Sailors want low tech gear, choosing simple, non-moving, unbreakable products over standard sheaves. How much can it hold? A lot. More than needed. Load isn't a problem for Rings, friction may rather be. Antal gives a safe working load for Rings that corresponds to a situation where the aluminum structure holds, but undergoes a slight (slight) deformation. So they don't break. Nor do they ever loose their low friction property. Do we have to worry about friction? This is a good question. Let's quickly dig into this. Friction gives higher values on rings than on sheaves, but how much higher? Of course, it depends on two main points: the…
