he use of composite materials in home built aircraft construction got its start back in 1970 when Ken Rand introduced his KR-1 and KR-2 kits. At
the same time, a young designer named Burt Rutan was completing the design of his VariViggen which was awarded the Stan Dzik trophy for
design contribution at Oshkosh in 1972. Although this aircraft featured some composite construction materials, it was fairly labor intensive to build
and interest was modest. Taking the canard design concept a step further and simplifying construction through the use of the moldless composite
technique, Burt educated thousands of builders and future designers through his plans, construction manuals, and many seminars and convinced
aircraft enthusiasts worldwide that composites were indeed the future for aviation construction. Rutan Aircraft Factory followed the tremendous
success of the VariEze kit program with plans for new designs such as the Long-EZ, Defiant, and Solitaire. At the same time, SCALED, Burt’s new
company specializing in design and prototype construction, was busy building proof-of concept aircraft such as the AD-1, Grizzly, and Beech Starship.
Burt continues to operate SCALED today and remains active in designing and building the aircraft of tomorrow. We hope he will someday return to
the homebuilt aircraft market, and arena that allowed him endless freedom to pursue aircraft design innovation.
uring the 1980’s many new designers entered the homebuilt aircraft market including Nat Puffer who introduced the popular Cozy, a side-byside version of the Long-EZ. Aircraft Spruce & Specialty Co. became the distributor of Cozy kits as it had been for the Rutan designs since
ME D
1976. Hundreds of kits were shipped worldwide, and Aircraft Spruce grew as quickly as the composite movement. At the same time, Aircraft Spruce
HA
began supplying kits and materials to designers marketing their own new designs using the new “fast-build” pre-fabricated kit concept. This type of
kit program was pioneered by Tom Jewett and Gene Sheehan of Quickie Aircraft and Tom Hamilton of Glasair fame. Many new designs followed,
including Lance Niebauer’s Lancair, Ken Wheeler’s Express, the Cirrus and White Lightning. Aircraft Spruce has been a supplier of materials for all of
these kit programs, and looks forward to working with the designers of new composite aircraft on their kit programs in the years to come. The design
sophistication and ease of construction that are offered in composite aircraft kits today have provided a way for many aviation enthusiasts to build
and fly higher performance aircraft at affordable prices. What an exciting time to be involved in sport aviation!
ADVANCED COMPOSITE FABRICS

dvanced composite fabrics are those materials which have been used for a number of years in aerospace applications, replacing standard fiberglass fabrics. Today’s materials - Kevlar, graphite, S glass and ceramics - are now making the transition from aerospace to homebuilt aircraft.
Kevlar is an organic fiber which is yellow in color and soft to touch. It is extremely strong and tough and about the lightest structural fabric on the market
today. Kevlar is highly resistant to impact but it is rather difficult to work with for hand layup applications and its compressive strength is considered
poor. Graphite fibers are created by extreme stretching and heating of rayon fibers to change their molecular structure. Graphite has very low density
(weight/unit volume), is very stiff (high modulus) and very strong (high tensile). S glass uses a different chemical formulation from standard E glass
fabrics, and is stronger, tougher and stiffer than E glass. One ply of S glass can replace several plies of E glass, which can result in a stronger and
considerably lighter aircraft component. Ceramic fabrics are the latest innovation in advanced composites. These fabrics produce laminates approaching the qualities of S glass plus they can withstand temperatures of almost 3000° F. Ceramic cloth can produce a very lightweight and effective
firewall laminate, although at this time the cost is high. These advanced composite materials are currently being used in the production of such items
as aerospace components, high-performance boats and race cars, and many revolutionary homebuilt aircraft such as the Long-EZ, Solitaire, Sea
Hawk and Q200. The performance of future homebuilt aircraft will most certainly be incredible with the availability of these innovative new composite
materials.

WHICH ONE DO YOU CHOOSE?
ften the choice of the materials to use for a laminate is difficult
because of the required properties. One must consider the advantages of one material over another and its anticipated performance. S
glass is about 30% stronger and 15% stiffer than E glass. It has 20-25%
of the stiffness of graphite and is as strong, but it is also 30% heavier.
S glass though, has only half the strength and stiffness of Kevlar
and twice the weight. Kevlar on the other hand, is 40% stronger and
25% lighter than graphite but has only half the stiffness of graphite.
Sometimes, blending different advanced composite fabrics in a laminate
can achieve the proper balance of stiffness, strength and weight. Use
the following six parameters listed here, from a best to a worst case,
to help you decide which advanced composite fabric(s) is best for your
application.

COMPOSITE MATERIALS
HELPFUL HINTS AND PRECAUTIONS
It is important to have the entire work area including tables, foam, tools and working materials thoroughly warm before commencing. This may take
3-4 hours. An electric hair dryer may be used to warm local areas, being careful not to overheat the part or epoxy. When, due to cool temperatures,
a part is slow to wet out, a few quick passes with a hair dryer will greatly speed the layup time. Do not use a hair dryer to heat a cup of epoxy. This
can give local hot spots and ruin pot life.
CM
The epoxy system components should be stored at room temperature. Never keep resin or hardeners in a cold place, even for long-term storage. If the
resin appears to crystallize and settle out it should be returned to its normal state as soon as possible, even if prompt usage is not anticipated. Placing
the container of resin in hot (160-190°F.) water for several hours will usually decrystallize it and return it to a clear state. Mild agitation will accelerate
the process. Leaving the resin hot for 3-5 hours after it clears will reduce its susceptibility to recrystallize. Securely close containers after use.
WP
Never attempt any layup below 70°F. since the higher viscosity of the resin will make it more difficult to wet out the cloth. Ideal working temperature is
85°F. Keep epoxy at 75° to 85°F. Never work outside in sunlight. It’s acceptable to work in a shop with radiant heaters, as long as:
1.) The heat is diffused and the heat source does not become much hottr than the ambient.
2.) The heat is not provided by a source that generates particulates or aerosol hydrocarbons.
ME
Never make a glass layup over a core that is not straight and smooth. The glass panel cannot take the loads if it has bumps or depressions in excess
of the allowable values. A wrinkle, depression or bump in a layup which is greater than 1/16” high or low and which is more than 20% of the chord
length or 20% of the spar chord is not acceptable and requires repair. A depression can usually be repaired by filling with flox to level and laying over
the entire depression the amount of glass that is underneath, lapping outside the depression a distance equal to one inch per ply. Care should be
taken not to lay up a depression or bump in the thick main spar caps. The transition of the spar caps into the wing fittings must be smooth and without joggles. These precautions apply only to the flying surfaces. The fuselage and fuel tanks can have relatively large depressions or bumps without
affecting structural safety. Care should be taken in the finishing process not to sand through more than one ply on the structure.
Joining foam blocks - (1) Paint a coat of epoxy (no micro) on the joining surfaces. (2) Trowel a wedge of dry micro on the center of one surface. (3)
Squeeze the joining surfaces together, wiggling them back and forth to obtain a thin micro joint less than 1/16” thick. It is desirable to have the micro
about 3/8” low in the joint (not squeezed out). The low joint is filled with micro before glass is laid over the joint allowing a wet bond between the
micro and the glass. If some does squeeze out, wipe the joint low with a mixing stick. Do not try to fill large voids with micro, as there is a possibility
of exotherm damage. For a void larger than about 0.1”, fill with a sliver of foam with micro on each side.
•
•
•
•
A paper cutter is excellent for measuring and cutting the many little squares of glass cloth.
Epoxy should be removed from metal tools or parts with acetone, MEK or soap and water before it cures.
Micro slurry should not be applied to glass surfaces being bonded. This weakens the joint.
Do not use Bondo on styrofoam, It has a polyester base which will dissolve the foam. Bondo will not attack urethane or PVC.
HA
AP
LG
EP
Precaution - Be sure layups are not dry, with air present ( small flecks of white). Inspect thoroughly before leaving a wet layup. A cured layup that is
too dry must be rejected.
Make sure that ample micro slurry is applied over the foam, particularly the urethane. Inadequate slurry allows air to remain under the first ply, decreasing laminate peel strength and surface durability.
Hot wire cutting - A good method to use for judging wire temperatures is the appearance of the cut foam surface. A cratered or rutted surface indicates
the wire is too hot. A very light “hair” of plastic strands on the surface is just right. Always adjust the temperature so that the wire will cut one inch in
4 to 6 seconds with light pressure.
CS
IN
Exotherm foam damage - Care must be taken to avoid heavy buildups of epoxy/micro down inside a joint that is insulated by foam, such as the
assembly of the wing cores. The gap to be filled by micro when assembling any foam cores should not be thicker than 1/16”. In filling a gap greater
than 0.1”, excessive weight is added and, more importantly, the large mass of epoxy/micro insulated by the foam can exotherm. Heat resulting from
the exotherm can be as high as 450°F., which will melt away the foam locally and destroy the joint. White is the recommended color for composite
aircraft since it absorbs very little of the sun’s heat (10%) while a black surface will heat up tremendously (95% absorption). Trim colors in noncritical
areas are acceptable. Any good quality automotive enamel, lacquer, acrylic or polyurethane is acceptable. A primer-surfacer with an ultra-violet radiation barrier is recommended as an undercoating.
EL
Caution: Do not ever wipe paint thinners on any part of the structure. Minute pin holes in the epoxy/glass skin can allow the thinners to penetrate down
to the styrofoam,which dissolves in thinners.
AV
QUALITY CONTROL
One of the unique features of the glass-foam-glass composite construction technique is the ability to visually inspect the structure from the outside. The
transparency of the glass/epoxy material makes it possible to see all the way through the skins and even through the spar caps. Defects in the layup
take four basic forms: (1) resin lean areas, (2) delaminations, (3) wrinkles or bumps in the fibers and (4) damage due to sanding structure away in
finishing. Resin lean areas are white in appearance due to incomplete wetting of the glass cloth with epoxy during layup. The presence of minor white
(lean) areas up to about 2 inches in diameter is not cause for rejection of the piece. Delaminations in a new layup may be due to small air bubbles
trapped between plies during the layup. Small delaminations or bubbles up to 2” diameter may be filled by drilling a small hole into the bubble and
filling the void with epoxy. Major wrinkles or bumps along more than 2” of chord are cause for rejection in the wings, canard and winglet on the VE,
particularity on the top. In most cases the rejected part can be repaired by following the basic rule: Remove the damaged area and fair back the area
at a slope of at least one inch per ply with a sanding block in all directions. Count the number of plies removed while sanding and replace with same,
plus one more ply of BID over the entire patch.
WEAVE PATTERNS
CROW FOOT
WEAVE
PLAIN
WEAVE
The weave pattern describes the manner in which the warp yarns and the filling yarns are interlaced in the fabric.
Plain Weave consists of one warp end woven over and under one filling pick. Plain weave is generally characterized by fabric stability with minimum pliability except at low fabric counts.
Crowfoot Weaves are constructed with one warp end weaving over three and under one filling pick. It is characterized as being more pliable than either plain or basket weaves, having conformability to complex or compound
curved surfaces and making possible the weaving of higher counts than plain or basket weaves.

STANDARD E-GLASS FIBERGLASS CLOTH
CM
Fiberglass cloth is exactly what the name says - glass. Fine fibers are spun from molten glass marbles, gathered into yarn and woven into a strong,
supple glass fabric. It can be folded, rolled or draped, like any other loosely woven fabric - but it can be chemically transformed into solid sheets of tremendous strength. All the fiberglass fabrics listed below are volan treated for maximum strength and resistance to moisture and abrasion. They feature
a weave that is tight enough for high strength, yet open enough for thorough wetting by resins.

Knitted fabrics are a relatively new format in composites. The performance of the glass is greatly
enhanced by removing the interstices of the
woven fabric and the crimped condition. E-glass
in woven goods normally has 22,000 psi tensile
strength. Layered non-woven goods give 27,000
psi which is about a 20% improvement. Knitted
glass offers greater ease of fabric orientation and
saves time over multi-layered wet lay-ups.

COMPOSITE MATERIALS
RUTAN FIBERGLASS CLOTHS
The most basic structural material in building a composite aircraft is glass cloth. The use of glass in aircraft structures, particularly structural sandwich
composites, is a recent development. Glass cloth is available commercially in hundreds of different weights, weaves, strengths and working properties.
Very few of these, however, are compatible with aircraft requirements for high strength and light weight. Even fewer are suitable for the hand-layup
techniques developed by Burt Rutan for the homebuilder. The glass cloth featured here has been specifically selected for the optimum combination of
workability, strength and weight. Two types of glass cloth, a bi-directional cloth (RA7725BID) and a uni-directional cloth(RA7715 UND) are used. BID
cloth has half of the fibers woven parallel to the selvage edge of the cloth and the other half at right angles to the selvage, giving the cloth the same
strength in both directions. UND cloth has 95% of the glass fibers woven parallel to the selvage, giving exceptional strength in that direction and very
little at right angles to it. BID is generally used for pieces which are cut at a 45° angle to the selvage, a bias cut, which enables the builder to lay BID
into contours with very little effort and provides the needed shear and torsion stiffness for flying surfaces. UND is used in areas where the primary
loads are in one direction, such as wing skins and spar caps. Multiple layers of glass cloth are laminated together to form the aircraft structure. Each
layer of cloth is called a “ply”.

BIDIRECTIONAL WOVEN KEVLAR
STYLE 120
AP
STYLE 285
STYLE 281
“Kevlar” 49 aramid fiber was introduced commercially in 1972 and is the Du Pont registered trademark for its new high strength, high modulus organic
fiber. It combines high tensile strength (43,000 PSI) and high modulus (19 million PSI) with light weight and toughness superior to other reinforcing
fibers for plastics. It is available in yarns and rovings which meet all FAA requirements for flammability. It shows no degradation in jet fuel, lubricating
oils, water, salt water or high humidity. At cryogenic temperatures (-320°F.) performance is excellent with essentially no embrittlement or degradation of
fiber properties. Kevlar 49 can offer both a significant weight saving and improved stiffness versus glass in addition to superior vibration damping and
good impact resistance. A kayak made with Kevlar 49, for example, weighs about 18 pounds while the weight of a comparable boat made with glass
would be over 30 pounds. The advantages over glass in small aircraft are similar - weight savings and improved impact resistance. Kevlar 49 is used
in a number of parts on the Lockheed L-1011 because of weight savings of up to 30% compared to similar parts made of glass. One unusual benefit
of Kevlar is its “quietness”. A cowling made of Kevlar will be quieter and less sensitive to engine vibrations than its glass or graphite counterpart.
Although all of the processes used in combining resins with glass fiber are adaptable to Kevlar 49 with little or no modification. The vinyl estertype
system is compatible, but the use of polyesters is not recommended because of poor bonding with Kevlar. The epoxy resin systems featured in this
catalog are compatible with Kevlar 49 and have good wetting characteristics.
Kevlar 49 is stocked in three different fabric styles. Kevlar #120 is a very lightweight fabric, while #281 and #285 are identical except for the weaving
pattern. Other weights and weaves of Kevlar are available on a special order basis. Be sure to specify the Kevlar style when ordering.

UNIDIRECTIONAL KEVLAR
KS-400 is a unique unidirectional reinforcing material combining the benefits of Kevlar 49 with Owens-Corning Fiberglass S-2
Glass. Designed for use in laminates which must have high modulus or stiffness and tensile strength combined with low weight
or density. Specifically constructed to enhance properties of wet-out behavior, bondability and impact strength in a hand laid-up
composite. As compared with woven fabrics of pure Kevlar, KS-400 should produce laminates with better fiber-resin ratios and
superior stiffness. The integrity of KS-400 is maintained through very fine, adhesive coated Dacron fill yarns that are bonded
to, but not interwoven with, the unidirectional fibers. Only vinyl esters or epoxies should be used as impregnating resins. The
presence of the S-2 Glass enables the fabricator to determine visually when the material is properly wet out. Resin bond is far
superior to the glass than to the Kevlar. This means increased resistance to delamination. Also the presence of the S-2 Glass
even in such a relatively small amount increases the impact strength of the laminate significantly. In application, it is important
that the fabricator does not confuse the appearance of the cross-direction adhesive binder with air bubbles. The impregnating
resin will soften this adhesive and it will flow slightly. The adhesive shows up as milky areas on both sides of the fabric within
the finished laminate. A gel coat or paint covers these. areas effectively.

Woven graphite is a fabric introduced in recent years which has become
an excellent alternative to fiberglass and Kevlar - only mils thick with
great strength. In addition to its great strength, graphite fabric also has
very low density and is very stiff. Although it is quite costly, the material
saving is appreciable since only one course of graphite is required for
3 or 4 of fiberglass. It cuts considerably easier than Kevlar. Graphite
“Prepregs”, which are standard graphite weaves impregnated with either
polyester or epoxy resins, have been used by major manufacturers to
cut production time on composite parts. The required equipment and
precise production controls for proper cure of prepregs make them difficult to adapt to homebuilt applications. The excellent qualities of the
graphite fabric itself give it an immediate waiting market in the aircraft
building field.
Graphite fabric is stocked in the three different styles shown below.
Other weights and weaves of graphite are available on a special order
basis. Be sure to specify the graphite style when ordering. These carbon
graphite cloths are not pre-preg fabrics. * Warning folding for shipment can damage the filaments in the fabric. Folding will be done
at customers risk and request only.

UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON GRAPHITE
Construction is such that the fibers are oriented in a straight or linear manner with no twist and are able to be maintained in that condition while being
impregnated by hand. The fabric is formed from rovings or “tows” of fibers
similar to that used in making woven fabric. These fibers are locked into position by very fine fill (or cross machine direction) fibers which are encapsulated
with an adhesive which is compatible with common impregnating resins.
These fill fibers and the encapsulating adhesive will be visible in any clear
resin. The resulting “pattern” is normal and should not be interpreted as poor
wet-out of the reinforcing fibers. For hand lay-ups, resin may be applied by
spray, brush or by pouring action. A short napped paint roller is recommended
for spreading the resin. Excess resin should always be rolled out in a direction
parallel to the graphite fibers. The final or external layer should be applied
with the fill yarns facing down (unexposed). Satisfactory for use with epoxies,
polyesters, vinyl esters and other resins. The fabric is rolled with a polyethylene interliner to maintain cleanliness. Care and cleanliness should be
practiced when working with Graphite materials. Unattached graphite fibers
are easily airborne. A filter mask should be worn when cutting and fabricating.
Itching & irritation caused by broken filaments becoming imbedded in the skin
can result from filament breakage during handling.
This graphite fabric is similar to the bidirectional woven graphite described
above but is a unidirectional weave using standard 3000 tow graphite warp
and 75-1/0 fiberglass fill .

GRAPHITE – LAMINATING EPOXIES
CARBON GRAPHITE YARN TOW
High strength (470,000 PSI) carbon
fibers are used as reinforcement in
high performance structural composites for aircraft applications, recreational and industrial products. Carbon
fiber filaments are finer than a human
hair. These filaments are bundled
together to make a fiber of 3,000, 6,000 or 12,000 filaments which is
called a “tow”. The tow is sized with an epoxy compatible material to
improve the handling characteristics. It is then wound on a cardboard
core holding from 4 to 6 pounds of fiber. 1 Lb. spool.

be hand sanded in 3 hours or machine sanded in 4 hours.
This allows you to apply 3 coats in a standard 8 hour
shift or 6 in a round the clock basis. Complete a fairing
or filleting job in a day rather than 3 or 4 days. NOTE:
QuikFairs warm butter-like consistency makes it easy to
measure by weight. Use care when measuring by volume
as QuikFair does not self-level and may trap air pockets.
As QuikFair is fast curing the working time is short. Mix
no more than can be applied within 10 minutes.

AEROPOXY LIGHT
PATCHING/FILLER COMPOUND
Aeropoxy Light, a modification of the
ES6279 adhesive system, is a 2-component paste epoxy patching and filler
compound for foam, wood, fiberglass
and other surfaces. The mixed consistency of this system is very smooth and
creamy, so it spreads easily, and can
be spliced to a feather edge without
separation. It is a thixotropic, non-sag
material that will remain in place in thick
sections, even when applied upside
down! The resin and hardener of this
system are color coded for easy mixing. The resin is white and the hardener is brown, giving a good visual
indication of complete mixing with a uniform tan color free of streaks.
AEROPOXY LIGHT has special low density fillers incorporated into it
that provide very distinct benefits. It is a very light material (4 pounds per
gallon), and therefore contributes minimal added weight to the filled or
repaired structure. Also, the cured material is very easy to sand, making
the finished patch undetectable when covered or painted. There are no
volatile ingredients in AEROPOXY LIGHT, so the cured material will not
outgas, which could cause a loss of adhesion of paint or coverings. Sold
in kits of part A & B.

STRUCTURAL EPOXY SYSTEM
Poly Epoxy is a true high-performance epoxy
resin with unmatched tensile, compressive,
and flex strengths. It also has unbeatable
peel, shear, and fatigue resistance, as well
as impact strength and fracture behavior.
It’s great for wings, canards, fuselages, tail
feathers, and landing gear. Use it in molds
or moldless construction. It parts easily and
works beautifully in vacuum bagging. (Avoid
silicone-treated peel ply.) It has TWO cure
phases, while all other resins—epoxy, polyester, or vinylester—have just
one. The two phases occur all by themselves during the curing process.
The resulting bond is tougher and stronger than any other.

ALPHA POXY
NON-STRUCTURAL EPOXY SYSTEM
AlphaPoxy is a low-cost flexible epoxy system that is ideal for laying up non-structural
parts like wheel pants, or fairings. Because
it is flexible, we don’t recommend it for
structural applications, such as fabricating
load-bearing structural aircraft parts. Use
PolyEpoxy for these applications. This is
a low-viscosity system specifically formulated for filling with microballoons, cotton
flox, or milled glass fibers to make slurries. It
was designed for maximum sandibility; when
cured, it is soft enough to be easily cut with
sandpaper smoothing a breeze. AlphaPoxy
is also excellent when used as a final filler resin over structural parts
when an epoxy gel coat is called for. You can use it in place of polyester resins for a much more durable part at a very attractive price.
AlphaPoxy uses a non-MDA hardener that allows us to ship it as nonhazardous material.

In early 1996, Composite Design Co. developed
E-Z Poxy to provide a replacement epoxy system for Epolite (Safe-T-Poxy) which is no longer
produced by Hexcel. The E-Z Poxy series of
laminating systems utilizes one resin and your
choice of three hardeners for varying pot life and
viscosity requirements. The E-Z Poxy systems
offer the same handling and physical properties
as the discontinued Epolite systems including
ease of use, long pot life, rapid cure for demold or process continuation,
and superior room temperature curing properties. Excellent for use in
sport aviation, marine, and industrial applications.
E-Z 83 hardener is equivalent to Safe-T-Poxy standard hardener, E-Z
84 is equivalent to Safe-T-Poxy II hardener, and E-Z 87 is equivalent
to Safe-T-Poxy slow hardener. E-Z Poxy products should not be mixed
with materials produced by other epoxy manufacturers.

EPOXY LAMINATING SYSTEMS
POLYESTER RESINS
Polyester resins are hygroscopic (they
draw moisture from the air). There are two
types of resin, and one or both types may
be required, depending on the application.
Type “A” resin has a small amount of wax
in it, which comes to the surface and forms
a barrier against the moisture. This permits
the resin to cure completely and the surface
is hard and easily sanded. Bond Coat “B”
resin does not have any wax content. As
a result the surface stays a little tacky, as
the surface cure is being inhibited by moisture. This tacky surface provides excellent
adhesion between coats. Bond Coat resin
is therefore recommended for the first coat
of resin to fill the weave of the glass cloth, for bonding fiberglass cloth to
plywood or other surfaces and for multi-layers of glass cloth.
TYPE “A” RESIN
#1520-5 is a general purpose ortho surfacing resin intended for the
finishing coat applied over the Bond Coat #1063-5, or for single coat
application. A second coat may be applied after full cure and thorough
sanding but is not recommended.

* Iso Resin is highly flexible. Has excellent adhesion to metal, wood,
concrete, fiberglass and other “hard-to-adhere” surfaces. Compatible
with most fuels. Iso is a wax-free resin and must be over-coated with
Type “A” Surfacing Resin to obtain a surface cure.
SURFACE CURING AGENT is used in polyester resin to improve sanding properties. Added to #1063-5 Bond Coat or #6060-5 Isophthalic, it
will provide same sanding properties as in Type “A” Surfacing Resin.
Use in proportions of 2 oz. per gallon of resin. Surface Curing Agent is
used in addition to catalyst.

MGS EPOXY RESINS
MGS epoxy resins are approved for the production of certificated aircraft parts. The 335 and 285
systems are especially suited for homebuilders
because of their long shelf lives, excellent workability, physiological friendliness, adjustable cure
rates and excellent static and dynamic strength
characteristics. The 285 system is available with
fast and slow hardeners which can be blended with
each other in any proportion to provide the desired
working life and cure cycle. Pot lives and working times can be adjusted
from fifteen minutes, using the fast hardeners, to six hours, when the
slow hardeners are employed. Once the hardeners have been blended,
the specified resin to hardener mixing ratio must be maintained. The
335 System is available only with fast hardener. Components of the 335
system should not be mixed with those of the 285 system. With both
systems, if only the slowest hardener is used, the cure times should be
extended to a few days, otherwise some brittleness may be noted. While
room temperature curing results in good properties when the faster
hardener combinations are used, some curing at elevated temperatures
or post curing will result in the highest achievable strength and Tg, with
the slower blends. Even unfavorable low temperature and high humidity
conditions in the work environment will not effect the quality of the product and high gloss, uncontaminated, tack free surfaces are achievable
every time. The resins do not contain any unreactive dilutants which with
many systems result in de-gassing and bubbling of the painted finish.
The MGS resins do NOT contain aromatic amines. While proper processing practices should be maintained, the physiological friendliness
of these systems have been demonstrated by many years of production
experience. The 285 system has slightly higher physicals than the 335
and will also achieve a higher maximum Tg after post curing. While the
335 is more viscous than the 285, after mixing with the appropriate hardeners, their viscosities are comparable. MGS systems are used in the
construction of the Cozy, Diamond, Cirrus and other aircraft.

WEST SYSTEM EPOXY
WEST SYSTEM brand resins and hardeners, form a two-part epoxy system developed by Gougeon Brothers specifically for wood and composite boat construction. Rutan Aircraft Factory now recommends WEST SYSTEM epoxy for
certain homebuilt aircraft applications, particularly where a moisture resistant epoxy is desired. 105 Resin is the base
material on which all of the WEST SYSTEM epoxy systems are built. The resin is a clear, light amber, low-viscosity
liquid. It is designed specifically to wet out wood fiber. With roller applications, it possesses excellent thin film characteristics in flowing out and is self-leveling without fish-eyeing. Its relatively high flash point makes it safer to work with
than polyesters. It can be cured in a wide temperature range, then sanded and shaped. It cures quite clear so that
the natural finish shines through. 205 Fast Hardener, when mixed with the 105 Resin in a ratio of 5 parts Resin to 1
part Hardener, yields a high-strength, rigid solid with excellent cohesive properties and provides an excellent moisture
vapor barrier. The 105 Resin/205 Fast Hardener has a pot life of 10-15 minutes at 70°F. It is also recommended in
coating applications where natural finishing is desired. Partial cure time at 70°F is 5-7 hours. 206 Slow Hardener is a
low-viscosity mixture of polyamines. The 105 Resin/206 Slow Hardener has a pot life of 30-40 minutes at 70°F. It is
normally used when extended time is needed for large coating and bonding applications. It is especially well suited to
working in warmer climates. Partial cure time is 9 hours at 70°F.

AP
LG
(TWO-COMPONENT POLYURETHANE FOAM)
This system consists of two components - “X-30”
Resin and “X-30” Catalyst. When the resin and catalyst are mixed in equal volumes they expand into a
rigid closed-cell foam of 2 pound density. Thorough
mixing of the two components is essential. “X-30”
Foam expands approximately 40 times its liquid volume. Small-batch mixes are recommended. Cured foams can be easily
trimmed, cut and shaped with common woodworking tools. Use toluene
or MEK for cleanup. “X-30” Foam contains a highly reactive agent and
is classified as a toxic material. It is combustible, a strong skin sensitizer
and eye irritant. Avoid contact with the skin. Use rubber gloves when
handling. Used for: Flotation, thermal and acoustical insulation reinforcement and miscellaneous void filling. Most small pleasure boats can be
made “sink-proof” with approximately two gallons of “X-30”. Data sheet
available. “X-30” Foam contains a volatile fluorocarbon and should be
stored at 70°F. or lower. “X-30” is used on the Osprey II bottom hull,
canopy, nose cone, etc., requiring about four gallons of material (2 gallons of each). Shelf life at least 6 months. Users have reported “more
than 2 years shelf life”.

BACKSAVER FOAM
Backsaver foam is temperature sensitive, softening when it comes in contact with a warm surface;
Thus, in a seat cushion, the foam softens and
conforms to the person’s body. This provides
even pressure distribution and unconstricted blood
circulation, significantly reducing discomfort, even
over long periods. In addition, Backsaver foam
has excellent energy absorption properties, which
have made it excellent for use in the U. S. space
shuttle program and in military aircraft and helicopters. Pilots find that Backsaver cushions reduce
their discomfort and fatigue, even on missions of 8 hours or more.
Aircraft Spruce now makes Backsaver foam available to the homebuilt
and general aviation market.

FILLERS
GLASS BUBBLES
These bubbles are actually hollow glass spheres. Because the high-quality glass is very crush resistant, the foam is
much stronger, stiffer and water-resistant than any foam made by chemical foaming. These foams displace 4-6 times
their weight in most resins and improve the handling characteristics of the base resin. They have a low bulk density and
are nontoxic. Mix resin and hardener as directed, then fold in the glass bubbles. Upon cure, a strong, low-density product
results which is easy to sand and file. May be shaped to form compound angles and curves. The term “micro” was applied
to the mixture of microspheres and epoxy early in the development of composite structures. Although microspheres have
been replaced by glass bubbles the word “micro” is still commonly used to reference the mixture. “Micro’ is used to fill
voids and low areas, to glue foam blocks together and as a bond between foams and glass cloth. Micro is used in three
consistencies - (1) a “slurry” which is a one-to-one by volume mix of epoxy and glass bubbles, (2) “wet micro” which is
about two to four parts glass bubbles by volume to one part epoxy, and (3) “dry micro” which is a mix of epoxy with enough glass bubbles to obtain
a paste which will not sag or run (about five parts to one by volume). In all instances glass bubbles are added to completely mixed epoxy resin and
hardener. Wet micro is used to join foam blocks and is much thicker than slurry (it has the consistency of honey) but can be brushed. Dry micro is used
to fill low spots and voids and is mixed so that it is a dry paste and will not sag. Apply with a putty knife. Never use micro between glass layers.
CAUTION - When mixing epoxy and glass bubbles, wear a dust mask and keep your face away from the balloons that may float up into the air.

Automotive body filler, used extensively in composite
construction to hold jig blocks in place, and for other
temporary fastening jobs. Hardens quickly and can
be chipped off without damaging the fiberglass. The
color of the mixture is used to judge how fast it will set.
As more hardener is added, the brighter in color the
mixture becomes and the faster it hardens.

FLOCKED COTTON FIBER
A structural resin filler. The mixture of cotton
fiber and epoxy is referred to as “flox”. The
mixture is used in structural joints and in areas
where a very hard, durable buildup is required.
Flox is mixed in much the same way as dry micro
but only about two parts flock to one part epoxy
is required. Mix in just enough flock to make the
mixture stand up. If “wet flox” is called out, mix
it so it will sag or run. Flox is often used to reinforce a sharp corner. Paint a light coat of pure
epoxy inside the corner, trowel flox in to make a
triangular support. The flox corner is done just before one glass surface
is applied for a wet bond to one surface.

MILLED GLASS FIBERS
As the name implies, this material is made by milling
fiberglass into a very thin consistency. This material
is used in preparing a structural filler. This material is used in fillets that require structural integrity.
Milled fiber fillers have higher strength than cotton
flock but have fine particles of fiberglass that can
penetrate the skin.

Easily controlled shrinkage by the application of heat by
either a conventional steam iron or other heat source
assures a professional covering job even on the first
attempt. May be coated with aircraft dope, epoxies or other finishes as
acceptable to the FAA. Dacron is available in many weights and weaves
but three types have been selected as being most suitable as an aircraft
covering material. The tensile strength of Grade A and Irish Linen
aircraft fabrics is 80 lbs, which may be used as a comparable standard
in selecting the proper Dacron fabric weight for a specific application.
1.8 oz. lightweight material which is generally used on gliders and over
plywood. 2.7 oz. fabric is comparable in strength to Grade A. The finer
weave assures an ultra-smooth texture-free finish. The 3.7 oz. material
is a heavy duty fabric for extraordinary service. Sold by the yard. NOT

thin mist coats over nonpourous, waxed mold surfaces.After
the final wax coat has dried, begin by spraying a light tack coat
of PVA. Typically, within 5 mins. the final heavier coats can be
added. The PVA dries to form a smooth, glassy film. After part
release, the residual film can be removed with water. We recommend using an inexpensive automotive siphon spray gun
and 70-90 psi for application, although airbrushes will work on
hobby size projects. PVA can also be sprayed over any polyester repair
to provide an airless tack-free cure. For use with epoxies.

Du Pont 210-S is a dark gray waterbased
primer surfacer which provides an effective
ultraviolet radiation barrier as well as an
excellent finish-sanding surface in preparation for the finish paint. Any DuPont top
coats - acrylic lacquer, acrylic enamel or
polyurethane (Imron) - will go well with 210S. RAF recommends urethane paint over
lacquer or enamel as it is tougher, more
flexible and adheres best. It is also strongly
recommended that one recognized paint
manufacturers’ products be used throughout, from the primer through
the top coat. Du Pont 210-S replaces 131S and 3011-S primers formerly

Adequate safety protection cannot be stressed too highly. Eyes, lungs, and skin are exposed to harmful chemicals and abrasive objects which can be
discomforting or permanently disabling. Always wear glasses when working with the Dremel grinder to protect the eyes from flying particles. Sanding
or grinding fiberglass and foams creates dust that can be harmful to the lungs. Use a dust respirator mask or a disposable type. Many individuals will
develop an allergy when working with epoxy with bare hands. Skin protection measures should always be taken.
INVISIBLE GLOVES #1211
Invisible Gloves #1211 are a soft paste-like substance
that when applied to hands provide protection against
caustic and carcinogenic chemical products including
hydraulic fluid, paints, ink, MEK, zink chromate, jet
fuel, graphite, engine exhaust by-products, adhesives
and much more. Invisible Gloves meets military and
industrial safety standards and can protect any area
of the body (hands, arms, face, legs, etc...) exposed to hazardous
products. Especially useful in working with materials used in composite
aircraft construction. One pint yields 100 pair of gloves. Invisible Gloves
#1211 are easily removed with water. Allows complete freedom of hand
and finger movement. Hands will not heat up and tools will not slip.

GLOVES IN A BOTTLE
Protect your hands with a protective skin lotion
called Gloves in a Bottle. Perfect for homebuilders,
particularly those who work with composite aircraft,
it binds with skin, forming an invisible pair of gloves
to help protect against machinery and chemicals. It
also protects against cracking and drying due to cold
weather. Conventional lotions try to replace natural
moisture with artificial moisture, but they come off
when you wash or touch something. Gloves in a bottle keeps moisturerobbing irritants out while helping to retain your skin’s natural moisture,
resulting in better-hydrated skin. When applied, the invisible gloves are
undetectable once they dry and last four hours or more. they come off
naturally with exfoliated skin cells. FEATURES: • Fragrance and colorant free, hypoallergenic, non-greasy, non-sticky • Turns the outer layer
of skin into what works like an invisible pair of gloves • Will not wash
off. Literally becomes part of the outer layer of skin itself and comes
off naturally with the outer layer of skin • Used and recommended by
many hundreds of dermatologists and many thousands of other health
care professionals • Keeps out irritants that rob the skin of natural oils
and moisture and helps retain skin’s own natural oil and moisture •
Conventional lotions only attempt to replace natural moisture with artificial moisture but they don’t really work because every time you wash or
touch something they come off.
