North Sea Resins® (NSR) products incorporate cure-on-command resins that can be used as adhesives, fillers and sealants. These one-part resins require no mixing and they can cure at temperature extremes beyond 28°F and 104°F, without impacting strength characteristics. As a rapid cure product, the resin cures in as fast as 30 seconds. Cure times will vary according to specific resin product and depth of product applied. The mechanism of cure is a specific wavelength of visible light. This wavelength of light does not have harmful health effects. This resin can offer rapid repair options in the most difficult locations.
This video gives you a clear understanding how quickly repairs can be done with the North Sea Resins light activated system. The video demonstrates the simplicity of using light to cure resin under the most challenging conditions.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Many questions concerning the North Sea Resins' Rapid Repair Kits can be found by reviewing our "Instruction Sheet and Use Considerations" document. The information will also provide insight on unqiue applications that can benefit from NSR's key attribute of cure-on-command under harsh conditions.
As a filler and sealant, NSR™ products have proven effective for composite materials, copper, brass, stainless steel, aluminum, FRP, PVC, ABS, HDPE, wood, and concrete. Although these products are not intended for use with rubber, they are highly versatile and suitable for most other marine and industrial product materials.
As an adhesive, NSR™ resins can be used with clear substrate hangers, disks or fiberglass mesh. Due to the requirement for light to reach the bond area, adhesive applications are effective when a clear top substrate is present.
Machine and maintenance down-time can be minimized due to the rapid cure time and minimal environmental considerations associated with use of the resin products. In a wet or damp environment, effective bonding can be achieved. These characteristics allow North Sea Resins products to be effective for performing emergency repairs to canoes, kayaks, and other water craft.
