WEST SYSTEM GRAPHITE POWDER ADDITIVE – West System’s 423 Graphite Powder is a fine black powder that can be mixed with West System epoxy to produce a low-friction exterior coating with increased scuff resistance and durability. Epoxy / graphite is commonly used as a low-load, low-speed bearing surface, and as a coating on rudders and centerboards, or on the bottoms of racing craft that are dry sailed. It does not provide antifouling qualities. The epoxy / graphite mixture can also be used in teak deck construction to simulate the look of traditional seams and to protect the epoxy from sunlight. Cures to a black color. Sold by the individual 12 oz. can.
Mix Ratios: Add to mixed resin/hardener at the rate of 10% by volume or 1-1/2 tablespoons per 8 fl. oz. of epoxy. 5.7 oz. of 423 will modify one B group of epoxy.
