CATALYSTS

The Hawk Epoxy System is formulated to address a wide variety of construction and repair scenarios. To facilitate them, four application-specific Epoxy Catalysts are available. Each Hawk Epoxy Catalyst is formulated to blend with and harden the R1 Epoxy Resin which tailors the mixture for particular uses depending on desired time of cure, ambient temperature during application and the type of finish wanted.

C1 Ultra Slow Catalyst is used to harden R1 Epoxy Resin for barrier coating, fabric application and general bonding purposes when used in higher ambient temperatures (70º or higher) or when slower cure time is required at room temperature. It's Pot Life at room temperature, when mixed in 4 ounce batches, is approximately 40 - 50 minutes. Its Cure Time at room temperature is approximately 20 - 24 hours. Pot Life and Cure Time is lengthened when ambient temperature is below room temperature and accelerated when ambient temperature is above room temperature.

C2 Slow Cure Catalyst is used to harden R1 Epoxy Resin for barrier coating, fabric application and general bonding purposes when used in normal ambient temperatures (60º or higher). It's Pot Life at room temperature, when mixed in 6 ounce batches, is approximately 20 - 25 minutes. Its Cure Time at room temperature is approximately 10 - 15 hours. Pot Life and Cure Time is lengthened when ambient temperature is below room temperature and accelerated when ambient temperature is above room temperature.

C3 Fast Cure Catalyst is used to harden R1 Epoxy Resin for barrier coating, fabric application and general bonding purposes when used in cooler ambient temperatures (40º or higher) or when accelerated cure time is required at room temperature. It's Pot Life at room temperature, when mixed in 6 ounce batches, is approximately 9 - 12 minutes. Its Cure Time at room temperature is approximately 6 - 8 hours. Pot Life and Cure Time is lengthened when ambient temperature is below room temperature and accelerated when ambient temperature is above room temperature.

C5 Clear Finish Catalyst is used to harden R1 Epoxy Resin for clear-coating and waterproofing fiberglass, wood and textiles with virtually zero-blush. It's Pot Life at room temperature, when mixed in 4 ounce batches, is approximately 22 - 27 minutes. Its Cure Time at room temperature is approximately 12 - 18 hours. Pot Life and Cure Time is lengthened when ambient temperature is below room temperature and accelerated when ambient temperature is above room temperature.

*Note: Hawk Epoxy cures faster in thicker applications or when mixed in larger batches.
