Western Cedar veneer with a paper backing. The paper is 10mil (0.01 inch) and the veneer is about the same (0.01 inch) for a total of 0.50mm. I was also thinking about the amount of time given to let the epoxy soak in... I'm going to try using a mix with a longer pot life so I can let is soak longer...

'Fairly good' bonds don't cut it. Honestly didn't try to pick/peel it that hard... once a bit of it has lifted - as it would in a tip/tail cross hit situation - the rest peels back quite easily. I suppose I expect a discussion as to some solutions to the problem. I agree with you that the veneer is ...

Not too sure what you mean MM... How does it 'work fine' if the top sheet peels away from the veneer... seems to be a pretty good measure of bond if the 8210 can easily be pulled off the substrate. Cross tips and get a chip or lift in the 8210 and any curious monkey is going to pick at it regardless...

Re: Prepreg Solution?

RESULTS: Well, it works to a point, but ultimately is a fail. The paper backed veneer looks perfect and bonded well to the ski... the 8210 is bubble free and bonded well to the top of the veneer. Where it fails is that the 8210 is only bonded to the outter most, thinnest skin on the veneer. I think ...

Re: Prepreg Solution?

The first step went well. No problem seeing the bubbles and working them to the edge of the 8210 with the squeegy. The assembled veneer and 8210 has cured and can be formed to any shape, but is quite more stiff than either product on it's own. Next step is the actual mock-layup... more later. I am r...

Prepreg Solution?

I am running a test that I will post an update on once I get some results... Using 8210 and laminating it to a paper backed wood veneer as a first step, basically creating a wood veneer prepreg to use in the layup process. Buttered the top side of the veneer and the bottom side of the 8210 and used ...
