West System slow hardener question

For some strange reason, I ran out of MAS hardener before the resin.  Since I have very little left to do, and couldn't find Mas hardener locally, I bought a pint of West System 106.  Tried it with Mas (2:1) and it cured okay.

 

Finally my question:  the can states:  "Not for clear coat."  I am assuming they mean there's no UV protection, but I am not sure.  Need an epoxy guy(or girl) to advise.  I plan to sand/varnish after epoxy cures.

 

Thanks!

RE: West System slow hardener question

I may be this,

West had an hardener that was designed for wooden hulls like strippers where the the wood was supposed to be seen. It was a bit yellow so they developed a newer product without the yellow cast.

Thanks Charlie.  I already have several coats of Mas resin/hardener on my stripped deck.  Do you think using the West Sysrtem hardener will affect the finish (i.e. yellow tint)?
