E-Tex

4 posts in this topic

Guys, I want to try out some E-Tex. Is it actually called Envirotex? Where is it sold? Are there different kinds, like Devcon has 5 minute, 2 ton, ect.? If so what do I need? Thanks for the help.

The name is Envirotex Lite, and it's sold as a table top epoxy in Michael's Crafts and other craft and home centers.

Read up on it because it is a little different than using Devcon. Good stuff but different. Use the search here and seek out other sites. Google ohiogamefishing. Some good info there also.

You must be able to turn it for several hours, so a relatively dust free environment is a plus. E-tex also must measured precisely and mixed thoroughly! Its advantages as a clear coat are a long pot life, and it retains a bit more flex than most epoxies so you have less problem with impact cracking.

I use it for sealing crankbaits. Do not try to use an extra-thick coat in an effort to keep it from pulling away from edges, as this will only cause sagging you'll have to sand.
