This week we are going to repair a Futures fin box using our Aluzine 2:1 surfboard epoxy resin. Due to the design of the Futures fin box, it’s pretty rare to have a box blow out completely. More often than not the damaged box remains in the board. This could be good or bad depending on the severity of the damage. If it’s really bad then you’ll have to either remove the box from the board or slowly route out the old fin box which is not fun, very time consuming and can fry your router bit. Luckily we were able to salvage the fin box, make the repair and get the board back in the water. Below is a list of products used in the repair that you can purchase on our website.
- Aluzine 2:1 surfboard resin
- Aluzine epoxy resin is known for its superior clarity, low viscosity and consistent workability. The low viscosity allows the resin to flow out and easily saturate the fiberglass, aramid, or carbon fibers of any project. This epoxy can be used on EPS and polyurethane foam cores with fantastic results. Aluzine is specifically designed for the manufacturing of surfboards and other high strength, lightweight composites.
- 8” medium Flexpad
- 150 grit, 220 grit and 400 grit sandpaper
