West systems 105 epoxy

I purchased this 5 gallons of 105 epoxy online and it came in this bucket container. The picture was of the clear 5 gallon container. I have googled and looked at pictures and nothing about a 5 gallon bucket like mine. Should I be worry and also how does one know when you order something online you are getting the authentic product. There is no way for me to know if the contact is 105 or some cheap 100 dollar epoxy.

Re: West systems 105 epoxy

Was the deal too good to be true? You got epoxy for $20 a gallon? If thats true it might be too good to be true.
I arrived at $20 a gallon based on the 5 gallons mentioned and the 100 dollar epoxy.
Other thing to look at is if there is an expiration date on the container. And post a picture of the container.

Re: West systems 105 epoxy

$ 360 is a good price on that resin. That is a lot of resin what are you building? The west in the 5 gallon kit has come in that container for may years. they have switched to the new Carboy container because it meets the new UN shipping requirements is what I was told from a big West System distributor.
