Likewise, does Bondo fiberglass resin dry clear?
exigeracer. Normal fiberglass resin does solidify yellow, but you can also buy clear fiberglass resin (it costs 30-40% from where I go). In liquid state it is blue, but dries up clear. Polyester resins also would achieve the same effect.
Similarly, is Fibreglass resin waterproof? Fiberglass cloth is absorbent by itself although the glass fibers are 'waterproof'. When forming a structure, it is the resin that fills the pores and prevents water absorption. So if the repair was coated with a decent coat or coats of epoxy resin, enough to leave no fibers exposed, it should be waterproof.
Similarly, can fiberglass resin be used alone?
Bondo Fiberglass Resin is the same high-strength polyester resin that is used to build most boats. It can be used alone or with fiberglass tape, cloth or mat to repair damaged fiberglass boats, snowmobiles, jet skis, bathtubs and showers and also be used as a sealer on damaged and rotted wood.
Can Bondo be used on fiberglass?
Fiberglass Bondo is waterproof, extremely strong and can be used for virtually any fiberglass panel. As an initial matter, it must be recognized that there is Bondo for metal and Bondo for fiberglass. Ensure that the Bondo for fiberglass is used.
