Resin Research 2000 SUPER CLEAR Epoxy
Developed for the sports and marine industries by epoxy expert and surf guru Greg Loehr and regarded as one of the world’s best surfboard epoxies, Resin Research 2000 Epoxy System has been formulated to give users the strongest and clearest finish possible.
Resin Research 2000 is a modified bisphenol A resin with a medium viscosity offering an excellent balance of clarity and UV stability. It’s unique four way flex controlled resin ensemble gives the engineer more latitude in developing production systems than any other resin system available today.
Resin Research 2000 is very safe to use and easy to mix at a 2:1 ratio. It has extremely low vapour pressure, excellent chemical adhesion and has good resistance to amine blush resulting in a nice high gloss finish when used in conjunction with Additive F.
Additive F has proved itself to be revolutionary as a surfacing and sanding agent giving excellent flow characteristics by reducing surface tension. Additive F also enhances the bond between epoxy coats by chemically eliminating blush. This improves the sanding characteristics of the composite allowing for a finer finish, something epoxy fabricators have always struggled with.
2:1 Mix Ratio
1 part hardener to 2 parts resin by volume (100 parts resin to 47 parts hardener by weight). For best results add 1% of Additive F by volume to mixed product. i.e. 10ml per litre.

About Resin Research
Resin Research’s legacy in composite innovation dates back to the creation of the first fully functional UV stable epoxy technology and the first commercial cycloaliphatic curing agents sold in the US composite market in 1981.
Resin Research’s advancement of epoxy curing agents to cycloaliphatic’s provided lower toxicity, excellent resistance to blush, better clarity, better UV stability and lower vapour pressure. Resin Research’s advanced cycloaliphatic based epoxy systems are widely recognized as the Rolls Royce of epoxy systems.
A later Resin Research innovation was the first sanding additive (Additive F) which brought easy sanding and quality finishing to numerous composite products formerly only accomplished with much difficulty. A later version proved to completely eliminate blush eliminating sanding and/or solvent washing prior to recoating.
In 2013 Resin Research initiated a program to address the needs of sustainable manufacturing. Understanding that sustainable products must be achieved without any negative aspects in the strength, stability, ease of use or cost of the product, Resin Research used current technology to completely remake the epoxy building blocks themselves. Using a newly discovered bio waste stream to build the exact same epoxide that is built from traditional pumped chemicals, Resin Research now achieves a bio content in all their resin products of 38 to 48%.
