West System 404 High-Density Adhesive Filler 15 Ounce 404-15
404 High-Density Adhesive Filler is an epoxy thickening additive. We developed it for maximum physical adhesive properties in hardware bonding, or anywhere that high-cyclic loads are anticipated. Blended with epoxy, it makes an excellent gap filler or structural fillets. Use this filler wherever you need an especially strong bond. You can blend it into any WEST SYSTEM 105 Resin/20X Hardener combination, G/flex Epoxy 650, or G/5 Five-Minute Adhesive.
High-Density filler is the most cost-effective and easiest-to-use filler for hardware/stud bonding. Even small amounts of this adhesive filler help reduce creep in the epoxy. Mix this filler into liquid epoxy to create a moderately loose slurry. It should be thick enough to stay in a horizontal hole, but not too thick. Blending too much filler into epoxy can trap air. To increase the mixture’s load-carrying capacity, add chopped glass fiber or carbon fiber. However, the additional cost and application difficulty are usually not worth taking this step.
