Systems, method and devices for applying a fluid composite to a carrier sheet are presented herein. An aspect of this disclosure is directed to a fluid-administering apparatus for applying a fluid composite, such as resins, epoxies, and adhesives, to a carrier sheet, such as a cloth tape. The apparatus includes a support frame with a container buttress, and a container removably received within the container buttress of the support frame. The container has a basin for holding the fluid composite, a lid covering the basin, and first and second scraping surfaces for scraping the carrier sheet. The container also has first and second slots, each of which is defined through a respective opposing side of the container. The carrier sheet passes through the first slot, traverses down into the basin through the fluid composite, slides over the first scraping surface then under the second scraping surface, and passes out through the second slot.
