Hexion Epoxy?

Anyone here ever used Hexion epoxy? (general purpose and marine use)

I'm pretty curious about this epoxy as there's an inexpensive source locally

Here's some info I found on line:

made - Momentive.com - World Leader in Specialty Chemicals and Materials

Tech sheet - www.chemcenters.com/images/Epon828.pdf (a Pdf download)

here's someone using it for a wave meter buoy -www.materialsday.be/Documents/Materialsday09_ugent_spiromatic.pdf (another

How inexpensive and who's the source?

I've just had a good experience with Ultra Lux Plastics in Richmond, but confess I don't know what 'brand' the epoxy was.. just over $100 for a 4:1 gallon kit (1 1/4 gal mixed) compared to $150 for West Systems epoxy alone....

Re: Hexion Epoxy?

West System appears expensive out west. It's about about $95 for a gallon for resin locally.

It is - that $150 Ron referred to was the list for a gallon of West resin, then add $35 or more for the hardener plus HST and you're over $200. The no-name that George sells is every bit as good for 1/2 the price.

Trust me, when you're doing a deck recore where the epoxy costs get up near a boat buck, 1/2 price gets to be a big attraction.

From everything I've learned over the years, there are only a small handful of actual resin manufacturers - the multiplicity of brands all use the same base stocks and just tweak the additives for various effects - cold temp cure and so forth. I've used way over a dozen different brands and never had a failure.

If you don't need any specialized aspects, just basic laminating resin, go for the cheap stuff - it's every bit as good as the heavily marketed "name" stuff.
