Posted in Repair on December 15th, 2010 by admin

Methyl ethyl ketone peroxide, or MEKP, is commonly used as the catalyst for hardening fiberglass mesh fabric and resin when making body panel repairs, speaker enclosures, inner door panels and inner trim panels. The amount of methyl ethyl ketone peroxide required for this purpose is very minute. For this reason this product is sold in small bottles. MEKP can be purchased at any parts store or auto body and paint supply store that you can buy fiberglass mesh fabric and resin at. The average price for this will be about $5 per 4 oz. bottle.  It must be noted that this product is highly flammable and explosive, so care must be taken when handling it.
