Injecting epoxy

I've read several different threads here that recommend for various projects that epoxy be injected.

My questions is - injected with what? And where do you get said injector?

Thanks,

Matt

So, it was probably right next to the epoxy that I bought and I didn't notice. Going to WM tomorrow. I'll make a point to look.

Thanks

Yes West System sells them. Kind of a low budget hypodermic needle without the needle. I used it last weekend to fill a void in my deck around one of my chainplates. I actually used one of those drinking staws that bends on the end of the injector to fill the outer part of the void area first.

This was my first real epoxy work and it went very well THANKS to the advice from people in this forum.

injecting epoxy

I recently bought a syringe from my local dealer that was made by MAS epoxy. Larger than the ones sold by West. Holds 60 ml. (2oz).Worked great.

Hysol comes in a two-part cartrige with a dispensing gun and mixing nozzle. It's great for forcing epoxy into tight spaces:

McMaster Carr on the Web has a large selection of various sizes of syringes, including blunt needles, at reasonable prices, especially if you buy in modest quantities. In the northeast, if you order by early evening, they arrive the next day. If you are not familiar with McMaster, they are an industrial supply company that will sell to the public and have a huge selection of products.

"Housewares" dept has them, not the disposable type, for injecting meat juices when roasting. Right next to the turkey basters.
