To Fair or to Bond, That is the Question….

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FAIRING(verb): To make the connection or junctions of surfaces smooth and even by filling low spots to achieve a fair and smooth surface.

Example of Fairing:

To fair and smooth the hull of a boat with LBI 340 or 940 to remove hollows and waves to create a perfect surface for a high gloss finish.

“Many of us have seen that a high gloss finish will show every imperfection”

340 FAIR-SO-LITE

  • Marine-grade lightweight polyester based fairing compound.
  • Non-water absorbing fillers.
  • Can be used on fiberglass laminate, wood and metal.
  • Easily sanded to a smooth surface.
  • May be painted or gelcoated.

940 VINYLESTER FAIRING COMPOUND

  • Marine grade lightweight vinylester fairing compound.
  • Made with non-water absorbing fillers.
  • Can be used on fiberglass laminate, wood and metal.
  • Vinylester compounds have higher bonding & structural strength than polyester compounds.
  • Has better water resistance than polyester compounds.
  • Excellent adhesion to sand blasted steel and aluminum or chemically etched aluminum.

BONDING(verb): to connect or bind.

Examples of Bonding:

  • To bond a deck to a hull with LBI 345 or 945 Bonding Compound.
  • To bond coring of balsa, honeycomb, PVC foam (Divynicell), plywood or any other material to a fiberglass or composite laminate.

  • Marine grade, glass reinforced polyester bonding and large void filling compound.
  • Hull to deck bonding.
  • Core bonding
  • An excellent “trowel in place” core.
  • Fiberglass filler that can be built up to 3″ thick.

945 VINYLESTER BONDING COMPOUND

  • Marine grade, glass reinforced polyester bonding and large void filling compound.
  • Hull to deck bonding
  • Core bonding
