Brampton Epoxy & Clubmaking Supplies are Easier & More Economical!
Clubmakers are generally loyal to a golf club epoxy. That is, once they start building clubs, generally they will have their “go to” epoxy they use for all their assemblies and repairs and won’t seek an alternative for as long as they build clubs. That is, unless the epoxy is discontinued by the manufacturer or their supplier goes out of business. After all, why chance something as important as an epoxy bond when what you are using is working well and gives you the assurance that at the end of the day what you put together is not going to go flying off?
Occasionally a clubmaker may opt for two types of epoxy; one is a slow cure for long term usage and a fast-setting for quick repairs or emergencies. But that might be the extent of it.
Many clubmakers already use Brampton epoxy and we decided to offer them in addition to the epoxies we have offered for many years. This way clubmakers can save money by one-stop shopping rather than buying heads, shaft and grip from us and purchasing their favorite shafting epoxy from another source. This also gives “newbies” in the craft of clubmaking another affordable choice.
Slow setting golf club epoxy
There are three different Brampton epoxies classified by how fast they cure and can be hit safely. The first is a slow or 20 hour cure epoxy. The PRO-FIX 20/20 is a great all-around epoxy with very high impact resistance and excellent adhesion on any materials a clubmaker will encounter in their shop. We have this in three sizes; two 4 ounces bottles or an 8 ounce kit, two 8 ounces bottles or a 16 ounce kit and for large volume shops two 16 ounces bottles or a 32 ounce kit.
There are two fast-setting epoxies – one being a quick cure and other a rapid cure. What is the difference? The PRO-FIX 5&10 Rapid Cure has a playable strength within 10-20 minutes at standard room temperature (68-77º F). For instance, allow a 30% increase in time per 10º temperature decrease. It is available in one size packaged in a double-barreled dispenser.
The PRO-FIX Quick Cure was developed to give a little longer working time than the Rapid Cure. It has a gel time of 5-8 minutes and a playable strength within 20-30 minutes at standard room temperature. You’ll need to allow longer time for colder temperatures. We offer this in three convenient sizes; two 2 ounce bottles or 4 ounce kit, two 4 oz. bottles for an 8 ounce kit and two 8 oz. bottles for an 16 ounce kit.
All three of these epoxies has a 1:1 mixture by volume and is easy to clean up. The slow and quick cure dry amber and the rapid cure dries white. These also allow for shaft removal without excessive heat.
The Uneekscraper is a play on words for “unique” scraper, this handy tool removes grip tape and even those stubborn Mylar decals lickety-split off of any type of shaft without harming it. Here is a quick video to show how it works.
Clear Demo Tape
For any clubfitting or pro shop can’t be without a roll of durable polyethylene plastic tape that’s perfect for protecting club heads from damage during demos and fittings. It comes in a 3 inch wide by 18 yard roll with perforations every 4” and only adds a mere one gram to the head.
If you do the math that comes to 162 sheets and will last a long time. It is the perfect size to put on today’s driver to try them out and not see any usage or those “idiot” marks on the front edge of the crown. You can peel it right off. One word of caution: if you use a launch monitor to measure launch and spin, the demo tap can give you some erroneous readings.
