'Q' Cells - are a lightweight, microscopic glass bubbles, used as filler with Polyester & Epoxy Resins. Q Cells have reasonable compression strength and are generally used to get bulk without adding too much weight. They are also ideal for fairing. QCells are easily sanded; it makes the ideal filler to glue in fin boxes and legrope plugs and is suitable for repairing “dings” in surfboards.
To apply in a ding repair:
When added to polyester or epoxy resin, Q-CELL filler thickens the resin to make it more workable and expands it to fill in large areas. This expansion reduces the amount of resin required therefore reducing weight. (Note: Q-CELL is only filler and should be sealed with a coat of resin before use). The following lists instructions for using Q-CELL filler:
- Estimate needed resin and mix in hardener.
- Add Q-CELL to resin in small amounts until desired consistency is reached. (For best results, a medium paste is recommended (mayonnaise consistency); avoid adding too much Q-CELL to the resin mixture or it will be too thick to apply.)
- Stir resin until qcell is completely saturated.
- Apply mixture to the repair.
Always wear dust masks & avoid breathing vapours of resins & dust residue.
