Dirt cheap epoxy on ebay...

Is there anybody here who has tried this product? It looks that the seller has got some good feedbacks, but I just want to be sure before I purcase this product.

if you scroll down to the bottom of the listing, you will see several
"similar" epoxy products with different names.
they ALL come directly from CHINA.
so, there is no telling what it is made of or anything about its durability.
for the price, you could purchase a couple of kits to do your own testing
and see if it will work for you.
personally, I would stick to well known name brands with a proven track record
for any project that you expect to last for years and years without issues.

Edit: okay, I'll bite.
I bought two of the 1 gallon kits (half gallon A&B = 1Gal) for $10.
mainly, to keep one kit closed. I have several scrap pieces of plywood that will
make good sample boards. some will be outside exposed to the Florida UV.
I'll report back with my findings in five years - stay tuned.

Do you have some extra time and $10.00?

Just order some, wait until January of next year for it to arrive and test it out. It will make 2 gallons of coating, so practice on scrap material and test it for curing time and hardness. They seem very interested in getting good ratings, so chances are it's a decent product. Ebay will show any bad ratings so you can trust them. Go for it......

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Why pay $10 when you can buy the same thing for $4.90 shipped to the US?

I have no use for epoxy in gallon quantities at this time. I use the small two-cylinder syringes as adhesives, which cost around $5 at the big box store, but don't take up as much storage space. The two-cylinder syringes are okay for small projects, but not very good quality epoxy.
