My epoxy knowledge and experience is very, very old and out of date. What I did know, I've forgotten.
I have had to cut a number of holes in the floor pan of my C400 in the process of installing a furnace. The Catalina floor pans are sandwiched fiberglass. I'd like to seal the edges of the holes against moisture. There shouldn't be moisture there, but you never know. I'm thinking that epoxy might be the best solution. So my questions...
- Is epoxy the best material for this application? If not, what?
- If epoxy, should it be thickened since it would be applied on the 3/4" vertical surface of the raw cuts?
- I'm going for a moisture barrier, so maybe unthickened epoxy with a moisture barrier additive would be better?
- What epoxy products do you use for something like this?
Any other thoughts you may have would be appreciated.
