A fine, light-weight, white powder added to polyester and
epoxy resins to make light-weight, sandable, fairing compounds.
Usually used in combination with thixotropic powder (described
above) for additional sag resistance on vertical and sloped
surfaces. To make your own fairing compound, mix the glass
bubbles in with the resin to a thick gravy consistency. Then
add thixotropic powder to desired thickness. With epoxy systems,
resin and hardener must be pre-mixed thoroughly before adding
fillers or additives. With polyesters, catalyst (MEKP) should
be mixed after adding the fillers or additives to the resin.
Remember that the clock starts ticking as soon as you add
