I'm looking for options for re-bedding a stanchion base. On West System's website it recommends bonding deck hardware with thickened epoxy instead of using polysulfide caulk. They claim this is a stronger and longer lasting water tight seal. Has anyone used this method for a stanchion base? If so, did it work well?
Whatever you read on the west Systems site you must be mis-remembering, it would be pure foolishness to epoxy hardware to a deck. Epoxy is not a sealant.
