Alumilite Flex Urethane

Recommended Posts

Alright guys, I've got another question for you. I just got some Alumilite Flex 70 (urethane) to make fins for my resin swimbaits. Can I mix the two parts by volume, or do I have to do it all by weight? I've never used the stuff, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

First, mix the stuff in the containers very very well.  It seperates some and you want a uniform mix, so shake up the containers first.

Mixing by volume or weight will work just fine.  It is more then close enough.

Small amounts are easier to get "correct" with a scale, and you can get one at Harbor Freight cheap.  Larger amounts are more then close enough.  Larry Dahlberg normally uses the pump that puts out a fluid oz with each pump.  So, he uses the pump and makes batches 2 floz ea.

Dye and alumidust will work with these rubber urethanes just fine. The bottles should have come with mixing directions, but Alumilite has good customer service .  Give them a call and they will help you..
