like that? It's really difficult to get resin ratio as low as it should be with 105 and no bag. But Proset hand lams come in as low as 40%. It costs more, but I find it pays for itself because you use far less resin for the same layup
, and get a much better layup. Unlike most laminating epoxy
resins, no post cure is required. 105 is strictly for bonding, fillets, and fairing for me. Haven't done a layup with it in many years. WEST came out with a laminating resin for some very good reasons.
