SUPER SAP® CLR Epoxy Resin is our flagship, high-performance clear coating epoxy resin system. The CLR system is a water clear, UV stabilized epoxy system for applications that require a low color, low yellowing epoxy resin such as high color applications. This system features a quick air-release and world-class UV resistance package. It has an ideal viscosity for a wide range of applications that use hand layup techniques with fast room temperature cures.

Why SUPER SAP
MAKE THINGS CLEANER
Reduce your carbon footprint. By employing green chemistry techniques that require less energy and produce less harmful byproducts, we reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from production of our resins by 50% over conventional petroleum based epoxies. Using today’s modern Life Cycle Analysis techniques we can demonstrate how our resins can help your products reduce their environmental impact.
SUSTAINABILITY BY SHARED BIO MASS PIPELINE
Not all carbon is created equal. We replace petroleum based carbon with renewable plant-based carbon. The raw materials going into our resins are co-products or waste products of other industrially important processes. These materials do not compete with food sources or displace food-based agriculture. Using an international standard method of radio carbon dating, we verify the renewable content of the resins so you know exactly where they come from.
LCA Measurement with ISO 14040: 2006.
Mixing ratio (volume): 2: 1
Mixing ratio (weight): 100: 47
Viscosity (A / B / mixed, cPs, at 25 ° C): 1850/500/1300
Pot life (min. At 25 ° C): 40
Tack free (hour at 25 ° C): 8
Fully cured: 7 days at 25 ° C
The epoxy SuperSap CLR / CLS can withstand temperatures up to 100 ° C, but the coating should not be hotter than 80 ° C.
The curing times (or tack free) are:
8 h at 25 ° C
4 h at 35 ° C
2 h at 45 ° C
1 h at 55 ° C
35 min at 65 ° C
20-25min at 75 ° C-80 ° C
The times apply when the resin in the ski reaches these temperatures.
Can be processed just like the normal resin in the shop.
We press with a vacuum press for at least 20 ° C for 14 hours. Afterwards, the ski is ready for further processing, but should be in a warm room for a few days to cure properly before the first ride.
At 20 ° C room temperature the pot life is a few minutes longer.
SUPER SAP® CLR you do not need an “airout”, since it is already included.
We need about 700 to 800 g of resin mixture per pair of skis. For flax fiber approx. 1100 to 1200 g.
If the resin is very thick in the bottle, it can be stirred in the bottle in a warm water bath. But do not make it too warm and allow it to cool again, otherwise the pot life will be shortened when adding the hardener.
Proper curing: </ strong>
The resin cures at 20 ° C. Until it is final, it takes 7 days at 25 ° C.
You can already finish the skis / snowboard before. But you should avoid driving the skis / snowboard before or even testing the bending behavior.
If the resin has reached the final hardness, then it is later better protected against higher temperatures.
Of course, it is faster if you cure the skis / snowboard properly at higher temperatures.
For example, after pressing:
80C – 2h
70C – 4h
60C – 8h
If you have no stove or other heating, you could also use a sauna.
Protect your skis / snowboards from warping.
