G Flex 655Versatile G/flex Thickened Epoxy Adhesive is now available in a convenient dispensing syringe. The G/flex 655-1 syringe contains 0.5 oz of resin and 0.5 oz of hardener, perfect to keep on hand for small repair jobs. Depressing the plunger on the dual syringe dispenses the proper 1:1 ratio of G/flex resin and hardener. This new product will be available through West System retailers beginning January 1, 2021.

G/flex 655 is a 2-part, pre-thickened epoxy system that bonds tenaciously to plastics including HDPE, LDPE, ABS, PVC, Polycarbonate, and Hypalon. Its viscosity is similar to gel toothpaste so it won’t run or sag, even on vertical surfaces. The G/flex 655-1 syringe allows users to dispense the epoxy in very small quantities, providing big strength for little repairs.

Manufactured by Gougeon Brothers, Inc. and sold in their West System line of epoxy products, G/flex is a toughened epoxy that makes permanent, waterproof structural bonds. It absorbs the stresses of expansion, contraction, shock, and vibration. In addition to its effectiveness in adhering to plastics, this formulation is also excellent for bonding metal, glass, masonry, and fiberglass. It is even effective on typically hard-to-bond substrates including dense, oily or damp wood varieties. 

The company introduced G/flex in 2008 and this versatile epoxy has been popular ever since. G/flex 655 comes in a wide variety of sizes; the 655-1 syringe is the smallest. To learn more about G/flex epoxy, visit westsystem.com.
