PRO-FILL 603 has been developed specifically for repairs to carbon fiber parts: The end result is black, making, thus, filled areas unnoticeable.
PRO-FILL 603 is a one component acrylic compound. It sets very quickly: It is sandable in just 30 minutes. Compared to our epoxy offering, PRO-FILL 303, the 603 is more suitable for the smallest of surface defects, e.g. pinholes, scratches, dry spots, etc.. As you can see in the video that follows, it is best to apply it with a batten in very thin layers, aiming to fill the low points only. Being acrylic, PRO-FILL 603 will shrink while setting so more than one layers may be needed.
The main advantages of PRO-FILL 603 are the speed of drying and ease of fairing. This is particularly useful for cosmetic refinishing of carbon fiber parts as it is much easier to first fill and level defects with this product rather than fill and overcoat with epoxy resin or 2-k coatings.

This weekend marked the finale of the 2022 Formula Kite Open European Championship, which navic supported and contributed to as a proud sponsor.
The week long regatta took place in beautiful Nafpaktos, Greece, from 24/09 to 02/10, and attracted 150 competitors and countless support crews and families from around the world. The venue is well known for offering excellent wind conditions almost all year around. The race course was set in front of the Old Port and Castle with the iconic Rio-Antirio bridge in the background, which resulted in amazing photographic material and unforgettable memories for both racers and spectators.
As part of our contribution to the event, we provided each participant with a gift set which included the PRO-FILL 303 filler, specially made for repairing CFRP parts, in this case hydrofoils. PRO-FILL 303 is a one-to-one offering which cures very quickly, is sanded very easily and, being black, makes repairs unnoticeable.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the ‘unsung heroes’ of this huge feat, the organizers, volunteers and contributors for making it an unforgettable event. A huge thank you also goes to the athletes, their supporters and families for making this trip from various corners of the world. Their passion, dedication and perseverance inspire us to keep pushing forward.
