Re: Epoxy Glue and Poly resin

If the information I have read and been told is correct the polyester resin will not damage the epoxy scarf, it simply will not make a decent bond with it. The other way around, applying epoxy on polyester resin, the bond will be fine. Both types are degraded by UV rays. If you wish to use polyester for a sealer and epoxy for scarfs you should paint also for UV protection and I believe it will be fine. Epoxy is much better at keeping moisture out but of course is more expensive, too. It would be good to hear from someone who has actually done what you are contemplating too, as I have not done that exact thing.
