These numbers indicate results extracted from several short beam, inter-laminar shear strength tests. Each sample was prepared with Polyester or a Vinyl Ester resin (as above) allowed to fully cure and then treated with either the Bio-Lock 9000 or sanding. Bio Lock 9000 panels were not sanded prior to or after treatment. Sanded panels received no Bio-Lock treatment. After sanding or Bio-Lock treatment, a secondary laminate was applied to the treated surface and allowed to cure for 14 days.Although the test results show favorable results in using the Bio-Lock 9000 as an alternative to sanding a first layer laminate, it is recommended that tests be performed on location in order to confirm that these or similar results can be achieved at that specific location.
