Ive been using Epolam 2017 for a while now for sheathing and fairing the topsides of my boat. I am so impressed that I had to write this review. This Epoxy is amazing! I would say that it is, in many ways better than West System. The standard hardener that is supplied is a medium slow hardener that gives plenty of pot life even on relatively hot days so gives plenty of time to get a really good finish thereby saving time when fairing. This also means that waste is kept to a minimum. Using 280gsm Woven Roving helps this Epoxy go a very long way indeed. Mixed with Colloidal Silica it makes a wonderful filler that is extremely workable, in part due to the long pot life. I live on my boat and work in the Marine repair industry. I now use this Epolam Epoxy for all of my work. Couple this with the excellent service, price and quick delivery offered by MBFibreglass and you really cant go wrong. I thoroughly recommend this Epoxy!
