Google search: 25%
Posted by jeffrey wong on Jun 20, 2006
On a Google newsgroup search I found some people using 25% by volume with satisfaction. Key words to search on: graphite epoxy 25
I mixed ~40ml of West Systems graphite into 100ml of System 3 resin until I could see no powder and then stirred it a bit more. I then added the hardener, mixing for about 3 minutes, then applied the mix by roller. This had gone on top of a 10% mix of the graphite/epoxy which had a hit and miss appearance. I have a very black hull that won't beckon me to add yet another 5 oz of epoxy.
I don't know the best way to do this, but really, nobody can call any method wrong. :)
