    I have some spare kite fabric that I was going to do a side by side comparison on between silicon and storm sure, but it’s getting myself motivated to do it that is the problem 😄

    Composite Laminating

    Yeah 600 gsm is pretty heavy. I think from memory I’m using 250 or 300. You can always add extra layers. you will need to clean off the blush, waxy build up, from the cured resin in between layers. It’s water soluble so warm soapy water and green scourer works well. or if you use peel ply when vac bagging the blush comes off with the peel ply.

    Composite Laminating

    I’ve vac bagged 2 boards now, with average results. slow set epoxy gives more time (and less stress) when setting up light weight fibreglass helps get into the corners. what did you use for a vac pump? I just cut the compressor out of an old fridge I got off free on gumtree. Check out kiteforum.com there is a gear builders forum with heaps of info https://kiteforum.com/viewforum.php?f=107&sid=189339b87ab74a2ec5d01c406ad96da8

    Peter Lynn Synergy (is back?!)

    Yeah, I’m not sure why they reused the synergy name though 🤷‍♂️

    Sorry, didn’t see your question before. no I haven’t done this myself, but I should give it a go. I’ve also wondered if dissolved stormsure glue would work better then silicon???

    @Northern Kites Australia Do you see how on the spray can you linked to it says “silicon lubricant”? That’s why it won’t work. It will never dry. The silicon and turps mix terry talks about uses a silicon sealant, which will dry. you would need to use a clear natural cure silicon. https://www.bunnings.com.au/parfix-300g-clear-all-purpose-silicone_p1232674
