Reaction to epoxy resin

Post by Pwlldu » Tue Feb 25, 2020 7:38 pm

Hi, I have built a selway fisher sea kayak and now want to build a sailing dinghy but because of the reaction I had to epoxy, I am limited to polyurethane glue, can anyone recommend plans and method for a suitable dinghy using this glue ? Thanks

Hi, I just wanted to mention that there are different types of epoxy, chemically speaking. Perhaps you can look into that also, buy contacting a specialist epoxy firm?

I'm affected by epoxy too and when I have to use it I use gloves and a carbon mask designed for solvents. Makes it manageable as the mask completely removes the smell.
