Some of you will already know this, but MAS EPOXY'S regular glue is lots less toxic than West System epoxy. Now they have a "new" glue that came out 8 years ago. It is called LOW TOX and it is even less likely to cause the dreadful rash that so many boat builders suffer with. Nev had it so bad with the West System epoxy, the fumes would set him off while we were building Peace. We did not learn about MAS epoxy until we were finished building and had already launched Peace. But we have learned in recent years that Nev can use regular MAS epoxy and that is what we are using today. We always use the slow hardener so we are never rushed when doing work and can be sure to do a good job. MAS epoxy has no amine blush so we save lots of time there..
Today we were mixing MAS epoxy to strengthen our engine wells, and I found clogged pumps and was phoning the company's toll free phone number for any special instructions on that issue and while chatting, I learned about their LOW TOX glue. It is apparently darker in color and the complete specifications can be found on their web site. I suppose one would google in MAS epoxy to get the information.
We have found them an good company to deal with. We have no sales or financial association with MAS.and offer this experience freely. Ann and Nev
