Matrix Adhesive Systems MAS was born out of the necessity of improving existing resins.
Many boat builders were looking for products that had better performance; less heat when mixing; and defiantly no WAX or Blush that had to be removed. Builders wanted to use resins in colder temperatures with the most important characteristic of superior wet out and saturation qualities.
All this is what MAS achieved. MAS 2-1 epoxies are castor oil based and offer the very best in no blush no wax. Their high performance is due to a very advanced chemical engineered matrix that has been developed to be easy to use with superb wet out and absorption properties and adheres to our philosophy, SIMPLE PERFECTION.
Now MAS has teamed up with Endurance Technologies to produce the best epoxies on the market today.
MAS epoxies are imported from America and they are stored at optimum temperatures, ensuring they reach you in good order.
Our 5-1 traditional epoxies follow the lines and working concepts set out by the Gougeon Brothers and their wood epoxy saturation technique (WEST)
Using any of our epoxies will give you good results time after time.
