Foaming Epoxy Additive - supplier?
« on: September 18, 2022, 12:09:26 AM »
I can't seem to find the mention of it, but does anyone have experience with foaming additives for epoxy? The Carbon Art mentions it when they glue the divinycell https://youtu.be/KqLLLoNWoCo?t=121

All I could find was this stuff from europe. https://shop.hp-textiles.com/shop/en/Liquid-foaming-agent-HP-BEL11.html
They recommend 0.5 - 4 % added.

Does anyone know of a US supplier of something similar and how to mix/use it?

I would use this for gluing the sandwich of D-cell down. I made one board with D-cell and it's bullet proof but was very tricky to do the rails, which had some voids in the nose and needed to be partially cut out and filled with epoxy later.

A foaming epoxy additive could be used in the bends and avoid this issue. I could also use it for boxes, etc. and avoid gorilla glue altogether I would imagine.

Search foaming epoxy resin. There are a few sources in the US for that. Total Boat seems to sell it but is out of stock. Looks like it's a specific product here and not an additive.

I tried to track some of the stuff down a while ago. If I remember  correctly, It was only available in large amounts.
If anyone finds a supplier not in euro-im in!

This guy is using to fill up a sailboat rudder and does a few tests to see how it expands and bonds...

I'm going to experiment with mixing in Gorillla glue to moxed epoxy.
