IMO do a test block roughly the same size as your target, see what happens.  Try 2:1 - it says on the resin "Use ratio specified on the hardener".

test #1 results:

 

2:1 (2TS +1TS) TS - Tea Spoon

 

Instead of 12 Hours as per label - it hardened in 48 hours :-(

 

In room temperature - very hard; drillable, does not crack. When heat applied (about 40-50C) it becomes flexible as rubber.

 

test #2 - just mixed 1:1 will see

we use a bizline product called BIZ GEL which works really well and is re-accessible, you can get it form ideal electrical and it comes in a caulking tube or a 2 part mix and works really well its also IP68

Very Interesting. How hard is it after polymerisation? i.e. Motorcycle frame is vibrating a lot.

I'd make more than a few teaspoons.

 

 

 

The reason for the long curing is the hardener is old.

 

After it's exposed to air, the chemicals break down a bit. We  actually have a hardener at work that will harden overnight after being exposed to air. And others that won't work at all.

Interesting. Can you give an approximate price for it? They really don't seem to want to give any pricing info online.

Final decision was - epoxy. It is up and running now. We'll see how long will it last.

Hardex

found some options

 

 

At least not that expensive.

 

Note that "Steel Stick" is metal reinforced - I would assume it is electro conductive, hence not for electronics. "Aqua Stick" - noted for future reference.
