FE180A TDS FITTING EPOXY OUTSTANDING BOND STRENGTH “The Professional’s Choice ” TDS FE-180A Fitting Epoxy has been formulated to achieve outstanding bond strength to most common marine materials including teak, other woods, fiberglass, aluminum and steel. The specially-engineered fillers allow the FE-180A to display superior wet-out of the bonding surfaces resulting in both a mechanical and chemical bond to adhere to even the most challenging substrates. Once cured, the FE-180A Fitting Epoxy provides excellent water-resistance, flexibility and internal strength which ensures the long term stability of the composite structure. TDS FE-180A Fitting Epoxy will cure in temperatures as low as 50° F / 10° C. Developed to be user-friendly, 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. At 77° F / 25° C, a layer of FE-180A applied with a 3/16" / 4,5mm toothed trowel will have an open time of approximately 120-130 minutes, the material will set in approximately 6-8 hours and complete cure will be achieved in approximately 24-36 hours. TDS Fitting Epoxy is DOT non-corrosive so it does not require hazardous labeling for shipment. Mixing Instructions: Stir both A & B components before combining, especially if less than a full container is being used. Mix by volume: 1 part base resin with 1 part activator. Mix well, scraping the sides of the container, until you have achieved a uniform tan color with no streaks. Mixing MUST be thorough to ensure a good cure. DO NOT ADD ANY FILLERS OR REDUCER. Application is not recommended below 50° F / 10° C. All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of any dirt, grease, wax, etc. before beginning any surface preparation. Steel should be sandblasted or ground to clean white metal per SSPC-SP63 to a 0,07 - 0,1 mm profile. Wash with Metal Prep. Do not wipe surface with rags due to the possibility of leaving a fiber pathway through the seal coat. Apply 2-3 coats of a commercially approved epoxy primer such as Awl-Grip High-Build, Devoe Epoxy Primer or equivalent, adequately filling the blast profile. Aluminum should be sandblasted or ground

with 24 grit disc pads to a 3-4 mil profile. Do not wipe surface with rags due to the possibility of leaving a fiber pathway through the seal coat. Then follow with a vinyl wash primer or Alumaprep followed by a mil/spec zinc or strontium chromate corrosion-inhibiting primer, then AwlGrip High-Build epoxy, Devoe Epoxy Primer, or equivalent. Fiberglass/Gelcoat should be ground with 36-40 grit paper until no shiny surface is present, then wiped down with acetone. Wood should be scuffed with 36-40 grit paper. Do not use polyester resin or wood sealers that contain oils. For all faired...
