- Thanks for the input Jim. I have referred to Thomas's pictures several times. Steve (Storm 22) has also helped me with this little adventure as well. Hopefully it will be over soon and I can get back to the lake.
Oh and by the way what should I use for a thickener?
CHOPPED GLASS chopped glass, +/-1/4", coarse high strength filler which increases tensile strength
COTTON FLOCK no fiberglass irritation, increases tensile strength. but, not as much as fiberglass
FUMED SILICA thickens with little change to cured properties, thixotropic means the thix is constant when static; when agitated it becomes thinner for several minutes, then it returns to its original thix, great for spraying on vertical surfaces
MICROBALLOONS small phenolic hollow spheres, adds sandability, reduces weight, makes smooth putty (no glass irritation)
MICROSPHERES small glass hollow spheres, adds sandability, reduces weight, makes smooth putty
MILLED FIBERS fiberglass, heavy powder, increases tensile strength, makes strong coarse putty
TALC most commonly used filler in body putty, adds sandability and super smoothness, will absorb water
WALNUT SHELLS makes good strength brown filler, can be used as wood putty, makes excellent light duty nonskid
