STRONGBACK GS-154 EPOXY

StrongBack® GS-154 Epoxy

GS–154 was developed to be used in conjunction with the GS–561 epoxy and tape of the StrongBack composite pipe reinforcement system. This is a highly modified 5-minute cure type repair 2-part epoxy compound, formulated for strength and versatility under adverse field conditions. Applied to fill critical voids, reservoirs or as a fairing compound, it is intended for use prior to the overall application of the GS–561 epoxy coating and when a fast cure time is required.

GS–154 is tolerant of wet conditions and can, therefore, be used underwater or to repair wet, leaking pipes. It adheres strongly to steel, copper PVC, gel coat, galvanizing and most other engineering materials. GS–154 can be shipped “Non-Regulated” by USDOT IATA and IMO.

RECOMMENDED USES

STRONGBACK PIPE REINFORCEMENT SYSTEM:
To fill critical voids and cracks quickly and prior to application of the load transfer medium, the GS–561 epoxy.

REINFORCES STRUCTURES:
Use with glass fiber for extra strength.

REPAIR LEAKS:
Bonds to steel, copper, PVC, paint, etc. and resists water, oil, and fuels.

UNDERWATER REPAIRS:
Attach, seal or repair materials underwater.

GENERAL REPAIRS:
Ideal, all-purpose sealer and adhesive purpose for general use.
