Description

Ultra Clear Fishing Rod Building Epoxy is designed and manufactured in Australia for Australian conditions. UBR Ultra Clear is a 2 part, low viscosity epoxy that produces crystal clear finish. It is solvent free and cures to form an extremely high strength abrasive resistance protective coating which is perfect for fishing rod building applications. Tolerant of humidity and serviceable to temperatures up to 100° Celsius. It even has great curing properties even at low working temperatures.

This epoxy works extremely well with suspended pigments for marbling details.

Unlike all other rod building epoxies that require a gel epoxy and a clear finishing epoxy, UBR Ultra Clear Epoxy Kit is one pack of epoxy. Combining the UBR Ultra Clear with UBR Fumed Silica we can form a paste or gel for glueing handles, grips and reel seats. The Paste forms a high-quality slow cure epoxy that creates a very strong flexible bond between the blank and components. The bond is completely waterproof and flexible giving the user a responsive feel through the handle.

This kit will be sufficient for finishing the guides and glueing handles/reel seats on approximately 15 rods.

Nil V.O.C. Free from any suspected or potential carcinogens.
