Notched Spreader

Epoxy Spreaders

The WEST SYSTEM 809 Notched Spreader is best for applying thickened epoxy mixtures. This is a rigid plastic square with three notched edges and one smooth beveled edge. The notched edges, each with a different notch size, are used to apply a controlled and consistent amount of thickened epoxy to a surface. The deeper notches apply more material than the shallower notches. The smooth edge can be used as a rigid to force excess resin and air out of a laminate, much like the more pliable 808 Plastic Spreader.—From Fiberglass Application Tools by Joe Parker, Epoxyworks #12
