Etex vs Devcon

11 posts in this topic

Let me ask a question that I don't think this topic has touched on. Has anyone tried combining the two? What I mean is maybe putting a coat of Devcon on first for its durability, then a coat or two of Etex for its flex. What do you guys think???? Would this work????

Thanks.

Volp1-

instead of getting everybody at each others throats, why not try your idea and lets us know how it turned out.

To me, it seems like you would just be forcing them to work against each other? If one flexes and the other doesn't, then the non-flexing compound would ultimately keep the flexing one from doing it's job.

I would agree with Skeeter, why compromise the quality of Etex by using a sub-standard product like Devcon with it!

(oh that was too easy).

No end to this as we are all still looking for "THE ULTIMATE" topcoat :D. The verdict - Devcon, Etex... or ????

I found this site: http://www.epoxyproducts.com/ but haven't had time to pour thru it yet, lots of info on epoxy & stuff. Anyone gone thru the info there? Any good?

Make this a top-coat wish-list:

1. super clear, UV resistant & will never yellow;

2. cures to Rockwell hardness 84 and above but still not brittle;

3. one part formula & can be spray on or dipped;

4. density of cured formula is the same as freshwater, meaning it neither float nor sink.

:D BOY, I can dream.

I agree with Jed, use the E-tex for its superior ease to work with and durability> :rolleyes:

I've been using Devcon 2 ton.

Can somebody tell me why I would want to switch to etex. Not looking for a debate, just some pros and cons. I know there is more than one way to get the job done. :D

Sorry guys, this one's over.

There is enough information, both pro's and con's about both products listed. This thread is going nowhere fast, and no questions are being answered.

ROCFISH, use the TU search feature. Your question has been answered several times in the past.
