TDS FFE-200 FAIRING & BONDING EPOXY “The Professional’s Choice” TDS FFE-200 1:1 Fairing & Bonding Epoxy is a customblended epoxy mastic of high quality resins, activators and engineered fillers to yield a blush-free, light weight, flexible and easily-sanded system used for both leveling and the final bonding of teak panels or planks. TDS FFE200 weighs only 0,85 kg per litre when cured and its celllike structure makes it an excellent sound and thermal insulator. The viscosity of the TDS FFE-200 is formulated to be high enough to remain in place when used for deck fairing, but low enough to provide excellent wet-out for bonding. The TDS FFE-200 Fairing & Bonding Epoxy will cure in temperatures as low as 7º C. Developed to be userfriendly, the simplified 1:1 mix ratio allows a batch of any size to be easily measured and mixed. Once thoroughly mixed, the material can be spread immediately, requiring no induction time. See Properties Chart at the end of this document for cure specifications. TDS FFE-200 Fairing & Bonding Epoxy is D.O.T. non-corrosive so it does not require hazardous labeling for shipment. Advantages: • Good bond strength • Excellent fairing material • Excellent wet-out of bonding surfaces • Best for vacuum bagging • Medium viscosity for ease of spreading and leveling • Flexible strength resists shock and twist • Light weight fillers for reduced weight and sand-ability • Good low temperature cure down to 45°F, 7°C • 1:1 mix ratio for easy mixing • Non-blushing Surface Preparation: All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of any dirt, grease, oil, etc. before beginning any surface preparation. Steel should be sandblasted or ground to clean white metal per SSPC-SP63 to a 0,07-0,10 mm profile. Vacuum surface to remove grit and dust. Wipe with acetone. Apply 2-3 coats of a commercially-approved epoxy primer such as Alexseal Epoxy Primer, Devoe 235 Epoxy Primer, Awl-Grip Hull Guard, or equivalent, following the primer manufacturer’s instructions accordingly. Aluminum should be sandblasted or ground with 24 grit disc pads to a 0,07-0,10 mm profile. Vacuum surface to remove grit and dust. Then follow with a vinyl wash primer or AlumaPrep followed by a mil/spec zinc or strontium chromate corrosion-inhibiting primer, then Alexseal Epoxy Primer, Devoe Epoxy Primer, AwlGrip Hull Guard or equivalent, following the primer manufacturer’s instructions accordingly. Fiberglass/Gelcoat should be ground with 36 grit paper until no shiny surface is present, then wiped down with acetone. Wood should be scuffed with 36 grit paper, then wiped down with acetone. Do not use polyester resin or wood sealers that contain oils. Mixing Instructions: Stir both A & B components before combining, especially

if less than a full container is being used. Mix by volume 1:1 One/1 part base resin to one/1 part activator using a Milwaukee 1675-1 dual speed drill or equivalent and an EM120 Ribbon Mixer blade or equivalent operating at 300-1200 RPM or for larger projects, a Myers Engineering Catalyzing Mixer Model 501-1-5. Always mix at the lowest possible speed to avoid excess air entrapment. TDS FFE-200 is supplied as a red base and an offwhite activator which must be mixed thoroughly to achieve a uniform pink color with no streaking. Mixing MUST be thorough to ensure a proper cure.
