    I bought some epoxy resin from uscomposites.com but it's yellowish. I want something clear.

    hehe

    http://www.epoxyproducts.com/summarymar.html

    ive been using their products for a LONG time, and ive always been happy, good phone tech support too.

    they website SUCKS.

    the products, prices, and tech support, are hard to beat though.

    call them and ask.

    I know some of basic no blush ive used has yellowed in the sun.
    but it is clear for the first several months.

    they all go on clear but yellow with exposure to UV.
    some are worse than others about this.

    I"m going to use it for some decoritive composite stuff. some will have sun exposure and some wont.

    the hardener from us composites is yellow in the jug so it won't work.

    This is like a branch of the other thread.....weird. But butti is right. West goes on quite clear. If you are going for looks, the extra price should be no thing. People pay for vanity. :wink:

    You will also find that the slower the hardener the clearer it is:biggthumpup:

    dont think 810 is an option
    THIS PRODUCT CANNOT BE BRUSHED/ROLLED ON AS A PAINT OR SEALER COAT ON SMOOTH SURFACES. IT WILL 'dimple', 'creep',

    810- is made to pour as in a bar top or table top.

    All of the basic no blush, and premium no blush products are clear, until they get UV exposure.

    they can be top coated, or mixed with UV inhibitors according to the website.

    as far as cost. no idea what west stuff costs

    I bought the 2.5 GAL premium stuff a couple of years ago.

    Ive bought the smaller kits of basic no blush too, they list it 1.5 Gallons for $75. ( that seems CHEAP)
