is a light-weight, microballon-filled, fast-curing two-part
epoxy fairing putty with excellent moisture resistance.
It is designed to be used on both fiberglass and wood-epoxy
boats above or below the waterline. It is ideal for fairing out and smoothing up large surfaces, such as the weave pattern in fiberglass cloth, or sanding scratches, dings and gouges, and screw and nail heads. The two color-coded
parts have a non-sagging, butter-like consistency and
are easily mixed to form a third color. At 70° F,
QuikFair is sufficiently cured to be hand-sanded in
3 hours or machine sanded in 4 hours (this allows the
user to apply three coats each 24 hours in a standard
eight-hour shift or six in a round-the-clock basis). Keep in mind that the cure time is longer in cooler temperatures.
Other epoxies need to cure overnight (at least 16 hours)
before sanding. QuikFair allows the user to complete
a fairing or filleting job in a day rather than three
or four days. QuickFair bonds to most surfaces such as wood, fiberglass, epoxy, polyester, vinylester, foam and metals. It must be sanded after curing to insure adhesion between coats or for epoxy primers and topcoats.
NOTE: OuikFair's warm butter-like consistency
makes it easy to measure by weight. Use care when measuring
by volume as QuikFair does not self-level and may trap
air pockets. Because QuikFair is fast curing, the working
time is short. QuikFair allows approximately 10 minutes
of working time at 70 degrees F.
