Gel Patch 5000

Gel Patch 5000

Flexible, Low CTE, Shock Resistant Epoxy 

Gel Patch 5000 is a flexible, non-abrasive filled 100% solids epoxy system. It is excellent to patch horizontal and vertical cracks and holes. Gel Patch 5000 is used as an underlay for tile, ceramics, and marble as well as wood, concrete, steel and many other materials. It functions as a permanent waterproofing system. Gel Patch 5000 is a material which exhibits low coefficient of thermal expansion and offers exceptional shock resistance. It is designed in such a way that the mix ratio is 1:1 by volume. Gel Patch 5000 is a room temperature cure, has excellent moisture resistance, and is also dispensable by machine and pneumatic & manual dispensing guns.

MIXING

Premix base (Part A) and hardener (Part B) separately. Mix one part base to one part hardener by volume. Mix thoroughly scraping all sides and bottom of container.

MORTAR 

For large cracks or holes make a mortar consisting of equal parts of epoxy compound and quartz by volume.
