Re: Crazy to use ebay epo
Posted by Stefan on Oct 23, 2007
I have bought epoxy at ebay germany a few weeks ago. The seller was specialized on epoxy and glas fabrics. The price was about 45 Euro for 3.6 kg resin and 1.8 kg hardener.
My experiences with the epoxy are good, as far as I can say as a boat building greenhorn. The epoxy cures quickly (but not too fast to work with it) to a very clear and hard plastic. The epoxy produces much blush so cleaning before painting is necessary. The surfaces get very even. Gluing parts together with the epoxy makes very strong connections. (test-breaking of a piece of scarfed plywood: always breaks besides the scarf join)
