Prefere 4050 Resin and 5750 Hardener (formerly known as Aerodux)

4050 is mixed 1:1 with 5750 to provide a phenol resorcinol adhesive which is fully weatherproof and resistant to acids, weak alkalis, boiling water and solvents.

Due to the manufacturer experiencing some difficulties with shelf life of the "fast" resin, it has been withdrawn. We now only stock the medium resin.

The choice of many homebuilders, it is excellent for all wooden structures and especially laminations including propellers.
