Hey all.....

Some one had posted a filler material here in the past. I need something like bondo, but light and sands well for my nacelles on the 36. It needs to stick to fiber glass.

It may had been some kind of sand-able glaze.....

Thanks, Dag

Thanks!!!!!

It works like Bondo, but is really easy to sand and fills weave, and I think is like a finishing glaze...

Thanks, DAG

Personally, I like Micro balloons, which can be mixed with either polyester resin or epoxy, so there are no compatibility issue....or for more strength...milled fiberglass , which again can be mixed with either polyester resin or epoxy, whichever you are using....

With the micro balloons, the more you add (to a certain point anyway), the easier it is to sand, and the lighter it is.

And on a "lighter" note...many years ago, RC Modeler magazine ran an "April Fools" story about a product they called "Heli-balloons" which were supposedly the same as micro balloons, but were filled with helium, so, the more you put on a plane, the lighter it got....

Damon here is a link to the Icing. http://www.autobodytoolmart.com/usc-...y-p-10969.aspx It is a easy to use lightweight filler. It can be sprayed as well. Just a light coat to fill the weave and sand off as much as you can. I like using this stuff because it sands so quick.

I love micro balloons. But I have a problem when I am trying to fill weave in corners. I need something that is easier to bush and can be kinda thinner.

Thanks, DAG

Aircraft Spruce & Specialty handles a product called SuperFil. It is a very light weight epoxy filler that comes in part A & part B, and is very sandable. Some of us C/L P.A. types use it on our light weight stunters. It weighs 3.68 lbs. per gallon mixed. And the best part is it only causes cancer if you live in California. Just kidding.
