Default Freeman fillet wax

About to order some 1/4 inch rounds. Has anyone used this stuff before? Iím thinking it could be used to seal plugs and seams instead of clay since I feel like my clay reaches sometimes with my gel coat.

Yeh, I dont like them. They work ok, but they are quite tedious and slow to use, and you are obviously limited with the radius size which can be more or a pain than you might expect.

In all honesty, I know the yellow filleting wax from Easy Composites seems expensive, but it is very much worth it. It takes me a good 2 years to go through a 600g block, and I use it a lot...

Infused, I have some of the wax filets if you would like to come by and get some. I bought them but don't really use them.

Pelikan Nakiplast is the brand that Easy Composites sells. I found a better deal on ebay. The stuff works great. Reusable. Easy to shape and clean up.

also on Amazon

I can’t find the stuff on eBay. The only thing that comes up is some blue play dough looking clay.

Or amazon for that matter.

Someone needs to buy a huge pallet of this stuff and distribute it in the US.

If you're in a pinch and only need a little rather than a big block, here's a tip- buy the soft wax for braces from Amazon (dental orthowax). Sticky, easy to form fillets from the rolled shapes, and works great.

If the "Nakiplast" is truly the same product that Easy Composites sells, then the blue stuff you found is correct. It comes in several colors, blue being one of them. It appears to be a clay rather than a wax.
