Help producing plastic, very fluid during polimerization


Hi I'm looking for a reaction to make plastic with these features:
-must be very fluid during polimerization
-must stick onto "Ortophtalic Polyester Resin" (it's a resin used in GlassFiber_Reinforced_Plastic)
-polimerization must take place at normal temperature (STP temperature) without beeing
too exotermic (mustn't damage the underlayer of GlassFiber_Reinforced_Plastic)
-that the dispersing agent (if there is) and the byproducts of the reaction should
be gasses not too toxic (HCl is ok, HF no) otherwise I think it won't cure in a perfect flat surface
-must cure in a perfect flat surface and in not much time
-once cured in a 1millimeter or 2 millimeters layer must be easy to cut with a knife
without chipping
-cheap and easy to find components will be best, anyway I live 36 Kilometers from a
very big refinery and petrolchemical factory.

Thankyou very much for your help ;)

Some soft composition of epoxy or polyurethane. Ask your fiberglass supplyer, they probably have both along with good advice.

Thankyou I have found a polyurethane supplier but


Thankyou. I have found a polyurethane supplier but, in the features
tabel of his product viscosity is in cPs or in mPa.
Wikipedia instead uses cP=centi poise or Pa·s=Pascal*second
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viscosity
http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viscosit%C3%A0
I have undertstand wikipedia measure units, but I didn't
understand the "cPs" "mPa" viscosity measure units that uses the firm.

Please help.

Note:

The pascal second (symbol Pa·s) is the SI unit of dynamic viscosity. If a fluid with a viscosity of one Pa·s is placed between two plates, and one plate is pushed sideways with a shear stress of one pascal, it moves a distance equal to the thickness of the layer between the plates in one second. One pascal second equals 10 poise. The name "poiseuille" was proposed for this unit (after Jean Louis Marie Poiseuille who formulated Poiseuille's law of viscous flow), but not accepted.
