What epoxy do you use?
9 Replies

"We're using epoxy and all the trimmings (glass, microballoons, wood flour...) from Raka and we've been pleased. We have a variety of hardeners -- fast and slow as well as cold cure. The variety has worked well for us in our climate. We…"

John Galilee replied to Winston Dryden's discussion What epoxy do you use?
"Epoxy 'A' from www.blugee.co.uk is very good. Its solvent free, easy to use 2:1 ratio, and no residue. The fast hardener is good for UK temperatures. They are in Poole in the UK.  "
