    Question Another Epoxy Query

    I have been looking at the products and price list of my local fibre glassing supplier - CFS in Cornwall.
    They sell and actually recommend West Systems Epoxy
    The 'A' Pack is 1.2 kgs for 20.23


    More importantly though they sell a General Purpose Resin 10kgs for
    28.76, for ! Including hardener

    This seems to me to be a huge variation in cost for what is essentially the same stuff or am I missing something?

    The project is a S/F Prospector 16
    How much would I need I'm taping inside & out

    Better to do something and regret it - Than regret not doing anything

    Two different resins the first is epoxy the second polyester, if you are building a wood composite canoe then use epoxy check out the free plans page on my website and it will give you an accurate measure of what you will need for each type of canoe we do this can be a guide for what you will need to buy.
