Epoxy is useful for sealing up wood and preventing rot. But UV kills epoxy. So it must be covered by multiple coats of some other finish (like varnish or paint) that will protect it from the UV.
Since teak is already naturally rot-resistant, it is redundant to seal it with epoxy prior to finishing with varnish, cetol, etc. There will be no benefit, and there is a potential downside: If you do not religiously maintain the finish that protects the epoxy from the UV, you could end up with yellowed and failed epoxy that will need to be stripped -- with great effort.
Skip the epoxy, and coat the teak with your preferred finish.
