epoxy question
Date: 6/23/2001, 9:48 am

Could some one help me out. I'm pretty ignorant on epoxy. My rudimentary understanding of the process involves combining a resin with a hardener to form epoxy. I'm building a Guillemot using Nick's book and he recommends putting a sealer coat of resin on the kayak before wetting out the glass. Is my assumption right that when he says resin he is using it interchangeably with epoxy. Is there anytime when just the resin or hardener would be used by themselves? Thanks for the help.
