Curses, there goes my plans for a plastic bottle encased within a kevlar re-enforced epoxy composite sheathed inside PVC if someone else has thought of it first.
(Actually, that would be pretty cool.)

Don't forget, JSR does make large parts of chambers from epoxy, but he has a lot of experience in the matter. However, I don't think even JSR would decide to make entire chamber walls from it.

It's simply not worth making a chamber out of epoxy when pressure rated pipe is already available. I make my own endcaps out of epoxy but they're usually reinforced with metal mesh, wood or similar and several milimetres thick.
