Epoxy bulk buy

Unread postAuthor: lozz08 » Thu Feb 24, 2011 3:29 am

Buying syringes of araldite is getting quite expensive. I need an epoxy that I can use for structural components and as an adhesive. I actually prefer something medium viscosity like araldite... It suits my methods.

Would anybody have a good value recommendation for me? (anyone in particular? :idea:)

As above, you can buy araldite in larger tubs.

I usually use araldite to make up moulds, then pour in low viscosity marine epoxy as the primary filler. I'm sure you can find higher viscosity products on eBay for a reasonable price. Low viscosity epoxy can be thickened with anything from talcum powder to sawdust, though this might compromise its adhesive properties to some extent and it's better to buy a specially designed product.

Maybe here? Haven't bought from here myself but I would think the low viscosity slow hardener would be better for spudgunning applications.

Interesting find there mark, having a range of viscosity and curing time would certainly be beneficial to those who indulge in epoxy based construction.

I've used TAP products in vinyl sign making so I just did a quick search to see if they had epoxies/polyester resins/what nots. Certainly interesting but I wouldn't see the benefit of having all three curing time hardeners next to the large bit o' cash required to buy them. :)
