PolyPoxy® Epoxy Clay Series

PolyPoxy® Epoxy Clays are two-component, room temperature curing (RTV) systems. When mixed together, these components form a soft, dough-like consistency that ultimately cures to a hard solid with excellent toughness and dimensional stability. The gray Resin and a colored Hardener of PolyPoxy® epoxy clays provide visual assistance to help obtain thorough mixing. Cured epoxy clay can be machined or carved with common wood working tools.

DESCRIPTION: PolyPoxy® Laminating Epoxies are low viscosity, room
temperature curing (RTV) systems formulated for general purpose and
high-temperature fabrication applications. These room temperature
curing systems should be used with reinforcement materials such as
fiberglass, carbon fiber, and other materials for lay-up mold making and
master production applications. Product options include:
PolyPoxy® 5008-2 is a clear, unfilled general purpose laminating epoxy.
PolyPoxy® 5010 is a white, filled general purpose laminating epoxy
with higher viscosity than 5008-2.
PolyPoxy® 5105 (unfilled) and PolyPoxy® 5114 (filled system) are heat-
resistant options for high-heat applications up to 300°F (for use above
150°F, post cure is required). This product is well-suited for constructing
vacuum form tools, lay-up and compression molds, RTM and RIM molds,
and matched dies. PolyPoxy® 5114 provides a higher viscosity mix for
vertical applications.
BEFORE USE: Thoroughly read Safety Data Sheets, product labels
and the“SAFETY”section in this Technical Bulletin.
WARNING: THE EPOXY CURE REACTION IS VERY EXOTHERMIC -
IMPROPER USE OF LAMINATING EPOXY CAN CAUSE WARPING
AND EVEN A FIRE. Laminating epoxy is not suitable for casting
applications and is designed to be applied in very thin layers and with
reinforcement material. Exothermic reactions can be greater when
working in temperatures higher than the recommended mixing/
application temperature range and when the epoxy is in a mass in the
mixing container. It is recommended to only mix as much epoxy as
will be needed for one layer. Because epoxy is especially exothermic
in masses, it is important to work quickly to get the epoxy out of the
mixing container and onto the desired surface.

PREPARATION: Prior to the application of laminating epoxy, a surface
coat epoxy should be applied to a properly-prepared original master.
Looking for a compatible surface coat epoxy? Consider PolyPoxy® 6005,
PolyPoxy® 6060 or PolyPoxy® 6126.
Once the final layer of the surface coat epoxy has been applied, allow
it to cure to a point where it’s tacky, but not wet. At that point, the first
layer of laminating epoxy can be applied.
Before use, be sure that Resin and Hardener are at room temperature
(73°F) and that all tools are ready. Surface and air temperatures should
be between 60°F and 80°F during mixing, application, and for the entire
curing period.
Elevated temperatures will reduce pot life, while lower temperature will
slow the cure. Very low temperatures could possibly prevent the cure
entirely.
MIXING: Read product labels to determine the correct mix ratio and if
pre-mixing of the Resin or Hardener component is required.
It is recommended to only mix as much epoxy as will be needed for the
- Room-temperature curing (RTV)
- Low-Viscosity Formulas
- General Purpose & High-Temperature Application

application of one layer. Because epoxy is very exothermic, especially
in masses, it is important to work quickly to get the epoxy out of the
mixing container and onto the desired surface.
Accurately weigh and dispense the Resin and Hardener components
into clean plastic, metal or wax-free paper containers. Mix thoroughly,
scraping the sides and bottom of the mixing container repeatedly.
APPLYING:NOTE: Laminating epoxies are not recommended for casting
applications due to their very strong exothermic reactions – never cast
these materials in thicknesses greater than 3/16”without reinforcement.
Once mixed thoroughly, use a chip brush (cut the bristles for better
control) to brush a very thin initial layer onto the epoxy surface coat.
Once thoroughly coated, apply reinforcement material into this layer.
Use the chip brush in a stippling motion to work the epoxy into the
reinforcement material to ensure thorough saturation. Use additional
epoxy to fully saturate the reinforcement material if needed. Do not
over-apply the epoxy to the point where it starts to pool.
Allow this initial layer to cure until almost“tack-free”– when in this state,
the application of the second layer should not disturb or pull away the
initial layer. Continue to apply thin layers in the same manner as the
initial layer until a desired thickness has been achieved. Do not allow a
preceding layer to cure for the specified demold time before applying
the next layer.
CURING: Allow epoxy to cure at room temperature for the specified
demold time listed in the Physical Properties table in this Technical
Bulletin. Parts demolded too soon may be subject to deformation.
Low temperatures will slow the curing and extend demold time, while
higher temperatures will shorten the demold time.
Although a part may be demolded after the specified demold time,
ultimate physical properties will not be achieved until after 7 days at
room temperature. For PolyPoxy® 5105, ultimate physical properties are
achieved upon post curing.
POST-CURING: For PolyPoxy® 5105 & 5114 - For best results, post
cure on the original master to help eliminate deformation. Post cure for
applications requiring temperatures above 150ºF can be accomplished
in an oven with gradual heat rise; 2 hours @ 150ºF plus 2 hours @ 250ºF
plus 2 hours at 300ºF. This post cure schedule will result in a laminate
with a heat distortion temperature of approximately 300°F / 149°C.
CLEAN UP: Tools should be wiped clean before the epoxy is hard.
Denatured alcohol is a good cleaning solvent, but must be handled with
extreme caution owing to its flammability and health hazards. Work
surfaces can be coated with wax or release agent so that cured plastic
can be easily removed.
STORAGE LIFE: For best results, store products in unopened containers
at room temperature (60-90°F/15-32°C). Use products within six months
from date of shipment.
SAFETY: Before use, thoroughly read Safety Data Sheets and product
labels. Follow safety precautions and directions.
Resin: Keep out of reach of children. Avoid breathing fumes, vapors
or mists. Use with adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to
minimize exposure levels. If needed, a NIOSH-approved respirator with
organic vapor cartridge may be used. Wear impervious gloves, such as
butyl rubber or nitrile rubber. Wash thoroughly with soap and water
after handling. Contaminated work clothing should not be allowed

PolyPoxy® Epoxy Clay Series

  • 1. DESCRIPTION: PolyPoxy® Laminating Epoxies are low viscosity, room temperature curing (RTV) systems formulated for general purpose and high-temperature fabrication applications. These room temperature curing systems should be used with reinforcement materials such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, and other materials for lay-up mold making and master production applications. Product options include: PolyPoxy® 5008-2 is a clear, unfilled general purpose laminating epoxy. PolyPoxy® 5010 is a white, filled general purpose laminating epoxy with higher viscosity than 5008-2. PolyPoxy® 5105 (unfilled) and PolyPoxy® 5114 (filled system) are heat- resistant options for high-heat applications up to 300°F (for use above 150°F, post cure is required). This product is well-suited for constructing vacuum form tools, lay-up and compression molds, RTM and RIM molds, and matched dies. PolyPoxy® 5114 provides a higher viscosity mix for vertical applications. BEFORE USE: Thoroughly read Safety Data Sheets, product labels and the“SAFETY”section in this Technical Bulletin. WARNING: THE EPOXY CURE REACTION IS VERY EXOTHERMIC - IMPROPER USE OF LAMINATING EPOXY CAN CAUSE WARPING AND EVEN A FIRE. Laminating epoxy is not suitable for casting applications and is designed to be applied in very thin layers and with reinforcement material. Exothermic reactions can be greater when working in temperatures higher than the recommended mixing/ application temperature range and when the epoxy is in a mass in the mixing container. It is recommended to only mix as much epoxy as will be needed for one layer. Because epoxy is especially exothermic in masses, it is important to work quickly to get the epoxy out of the mixing container and onto the desired surface.

Looking for a compatible surface coat epoxy? Consider PolyPoxy® 6005, PolyPoxy® 6060 or PolyPoxy® 6126. Once the final layer of the surface coat epoxy has been applied, allow it to cure to a point where it’s tacky, but not wet. At that point, the first layer of laminating epoxy can be applied. Before use, be sure that Resin and Hardener are at room temperature (73°F) and that all tools are ready. Surface and air temperatures should be between 60°F and 80°F during mixing, application, and for the entire curing period. Elevated temperatures will reduce pot life, while lower temperature will slow the cure. Very low temperatures could possibly prevent the cure entirely. MIXING: Read product labels to determine the correct mix ratio and if pre-mixing of the Resin or Hardener component is required.

Because epoxy is very exothermic, especially in masses, it is important to work quickly to get the epoxy out of the mixing container and onto the desired surface. Accurately weigh and dispense the Resin and Hardener components into clean plastic, metal or wax-free paper containers. Mix thoroughly, scraping the sides and bottom of the mixing container repeatedly. APPLYING:NOTE: Laminating epoxies are not recommended for casting applications due to their very strong exothermic reactions – never cast these materials in thicknesses greater than 3/16”without reinforcement. Once mixed thoroughly, use a chip brush (cut the bristles for better control) to brush a very thin initial layer onto the epoxy surface coat. Once thoroughly coated, apply reinforcement material into this layer. Use the chip brush in a stippling motion to work the epoxy into the reinforcement material to ensure thorough saturation. Use additional epoxy to fully saturate the reinforcement material if needed. Do not over-apply the epoxy to the point where it starts to pool. Allow this initial layer to cure until almost“tack-free”– when in this state, the application of the second layer should not disturb or pull away the initial layer. Continue to apply thin layers in the same manner as the initial layer until a desired thickness has been achieved. Do not allow a preceding layer to cure for the specified demold time before applying the next layer. CURING: Allow epoxy to cure at room temperature for the specified demold time listed in the Physical Properties table in this Technical Bulletin. Parts demolded too soon may be subject to deformation. Low temperatures will slow the curing and extend demold time, while higher temperatures will shorten the demold time. Although a part may be demolded after the specified demold time, ultimate physical properties will not be achieved until after 7 days at room temperature. For PolyPoxy® 5105, ultimate physical properties are achieved upon post curing. POST-CURING: For PolyPoxy® 5105 & 5114 - For best results, post cure on the original master to help eliminate deformation. Post cure for applications requiring temperatures above 150ºF can be accomplished in an oven with gradual heat rise; 2 hours @ 150ºF plus 2 hours @ 250ºF plus 2 hours at 300ºF. This post cure schedule will result in a laminate with a heat distortion temperature of approximately 300°F / 149°C. CLEAN UP: Tools should be wiped clean before the epoxy is hard. Denatured alcohol is a good cleaning solvent, but must be handled with extreme caution owing to its flammability and health hazards. Work surfaces can be coated with wax or release agent so that cured plastic can be easily removed. STORAGE LIFE: For best results, store products in unopened containers at room temperature (60-90°F/15-32°C). Use products within six months from date of shipment. SAFETY: Before use, thoroughly read Safety Data Sheets and product labels. Follow safety precautions and directions. Resin: Keep out of reach of children. Avoid breathing fumes, vapors or mists.
