  • A good product you should all know about!!

    I wanted to share information on a product you forum members all may find useful while working on your fiberglass panels.

    This product may be used to level out your body parts. Similar to a glazing compound but is designed to be used over fiberglass and gellcoats. This product spreads like cake icing and is very easy to sand and finish. I used it for the first time the other day and I am very impressed with the results.

    I didn’t want to use Bondo on my build and found this alternative.

    You mix this stuff up just like typical body filler but the working time is longer.

    This product is designed for fiberglass boats and may be used below the water line. So if you typically drive your car under the water or put it into an oven up to 446 degree F. It will hold up!



    ADTECH P-17 HIGH HEAT RESISTANT FILLER

    P-17 High heat resistant filler set-fast system has uses in aerospace, aircraft, automotive, tooling, manufacturing and final fabrication where potential exposure to elevated temperatures up to 230°C/446°F have to be tolerated either for short term or continuous periods. P-17 offers the user a smooth workable paste with set-fast cure to expedite those applications for repair or finish. P-17 can be applied with a squeegee, spatula or flat tool. The cured material can be finished by mechanical sanding, grinding, scraping, etc., to a feather edge. This filler has excellent adhesive and bond strength to fiberglass, SMC, BMC, RIM, FRP, epoxy, graphite and Kevlar® composites as well as aluminum, plaster and other substrates. P-17 High Heat Resistant Filler when cured and finished accepts virtually all types of coatings and decorative film without any blush or discoloration.

    Features:
    • Two component vinyl ester, thixotropic machinable paste
    • 4-6 Minute Work Life
    • White, Gray or Black

    Developed for use in tooling, fabrication and repair in the aerospace, aircraft and automotive industries where elevated temperatures (up to 230°C/446°F) may occur. Low moisture absorption also makes this an ideal filler/repair material for the marine industry. Excellent bond strength to fiberglass, SMC, BMC, RIM, FRP composites and other substrates. Accepts all types of coatings without discoloration.

    Nice find... What advantage does this have over your typical bondo besides higher temp which isn't a concern for me.

      The main advantage of this product is that it is waterproof. Typically body fillers contain talc which absorb moisture and lead to separations of the filler and the panel or bubbling of the final finish as well as cracks. This product offers the same flexibility and water resistant property's of duraglass but it will featheredege very well and therefore is ideally suited for finish work of both metel panels and fiberglass.

        How does this material compare to 2C polyester glazing putty? I use a lot of the 2Cpoly in my business (not car related) but I use it on wood. Weight is an issue but this stuff sounds great.

          What is the typical price for a gallon kit? Can I find this stuff in a painters supply shop?

            I purchased it at a local fiberglass supply store. It was somewhere around $80.00 for a gallon. It appears to act just like finishing glaze. but like I stated earlyer, waterproof. This stuff does have a strong heavy order to it. The only real issue I found is that it takes longer than the 15 minutes they claim to be able to start sanding it. You need to give it considerably more time or it will load up your sand paper quickly. I don't think there is a difference in weight. I'm really not sure about that.
