Has anyone heard of EcoPoxy?

Post by GrittyRooster » Tue Jun 26, 2018 9:45 am

This is a company out of Morris, Manitoba I found out about when looking at some videos of live edge table construction. Does anyone have any experience with their products? Any thoughts on use with a canoe project? Pricing I've been able to find looks comparable to West Systems so no real cost savings. However, they advertise the product as safer and less toxic.

They have a UV resistant product that caught my attention as well.

I haven't heard of this company before, the products look to be suitable.

If you are in Canada, another product manufactured here, is East System, which I have used on 4 canoes and can vouch for it's performance. I usually buy a canoe covering kit from Noah's and haven't found a more economical way to get the boat done ... so far

So something else for you to check out.

Thanks for the info Brian! I am in Texas, so the hunt for good materials has been fun to say the least.

I don't think they are Eco friendly, but really I don't think any Epoxy could be Eco Friendly .
