Colloidal Silica

Colloidal Silica


Is a structural resin filler. Often referred to as "flox" it is used in structural joints and in areas where a very hard durable build up is required. Flox is mixed in much the same way as dry micro but only about two parts flock to one part epoxy is required. Mix in just enough flock to make the mixture stand up. If "wet flox" is called out, mix it so it will not sag or run. "Flox" is often used to reinforce sharp corners to give more structural integrity. The flox corner is done just before one glass surface is applied for a wet bond to one surface.

Not recommended for high-heat exposure.

Ratio of filler to epoxy is not critical, simply add filler to well mixed epoxy until the desired consistency is achieved. If it gets too thick, add more epoxy. Slurry is used to coat and seal the raw sanded foam before laying on the glass cloth. Also aids in easing the removal of trapped air bubbles by sealing off the foam. Dry micro is achieved by adding additional filler to the slurry. Similar to dry bread dough, has excellent and easy sanding characteristics, but ...
