A Kevlar®-reinforced, two-pack epoxy designed as a specialist fast-cure adhesive for underwater, marine and wet-area environments.
Quality materials are used with Kevlar® fibres to create a high-strength, high-performance adhesive that provides genuine underwater capability and a rapid 5-minute cure.
Scubapoxy 3725 was also formulated in conjunction with
commercial divers to be as diver-friendly as possible. The
fibre-reinforced, thixotropic nature of the product is not
prone to stringing or floating, while the resin-rich,
paste-like viscosity gives superior tackiness and adhesion
compared to traditional “putty” products.
ASTM D-2280 JIS K 5600-5-4:1999
|81-86 Shore D.|
Scubapoxy 3725 is resistant to exposure from all common liquids in residential, commercial, industrial and marine applications, e.g.
chlorinated water, saltwater, wastewater, cleaners, dilute acids/alkalis etc.
Staining may occur when exposed to aggressive chemicals. Good housekeeping practices, including dilution and spillage clean up, will minimise chemical damage. For full immersion performance, contact supplier.
The actual coverage achieved by Scubapoxy 3115 will depend on the application type, as well as substrate characteristics and condition.
The theoretical yield for an application where the product is applied at an average of 5mm is: 4 litre kit @ 0.2m2/L = 0.8m2
Time (@ 25°C)
Pot Life - 4 minutes
Set (touch) - 5 minutes
Set (hard) - 10 minutes
Re-coat (min.) - N/A
Re-coat (max.) - N/A
Full Cure - 12 hours
Approximate time frames for full kit @ 25°C. Pot life will shorten for larger mixes. Curing times will decrease with increasing temperature (+10°C will halve curing times, -10°C will double them).
Sound surfaces should be well cleaned by high-pressure water/abrasive blasting if possible. Small areas can be cleaned by grinder; not practical for large areas.
In general, ensure surfaces are clean and free from oils, grease and loose contaminants. Lightly abrade with sandpaper if above options aren’t available, and use methylated spirits to clean the surface once more before application.
High-pressure water-blasting or abrasive blasting to class 2.4 (AS 1627.4) with a typical profile of 50-70 microns in a jagged pattern. Grinding acceptable for small areas. Can be applied over tight rust. For best results, clean metal surface with a sponge soaked in detergent (sealed in a locked plastic bag if working at depth) immediately before application.
Can be applied over existing, well-adhered, abraded, clean coatings.
For full safety instructions, consult SDS. Wear protective clothing, goggles and gloves to prevent skin and eye contact.
NOTE: Check packaging for correct components before mixing.
Mix product at a ratio of 1:1 by volume with a drill mixer.
Only work with small volumes (less than 500mL) to avoid excessive heat generation and product hardening before use.
Pour/scrape Part B into Part A and mix with a stiff spatula or similar instrument until a consistent colour is obtained, scraping sides at least once to ensure all product is taken in.
“Butter” the adhesive on the entire repair site. If adhering two surfaces, “butter” both surfaces and press gently together to create the bond, making sure some product is left in the joint.
If applying underwater, let sit for a moment then work/smear slowly to allow the product to displace the water and “wet” the surface. When attaching material underwater, it’s best to smear the product above water first and then take it below to fix in place.
Keep containers closed when not in use. Store below 40°C. Do not store in direct sunlight. Shelf life is at least 12 months in original, unopened container. Seek advice from your local council regarding accepted disposal methods.
CAUTION: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. IF ON SKIN: Remove immediately all contaminated clothing. Rinse skin with water. IF IN EYES:
Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Immediately call a POISON CENTRE (Australia - 13 11 26) or doctor/physician. If skin
irritation occurs: Get medical advice/attention.
