Complete noob here when it comes to resin infusion. Have done a fair amount of wet laminating with polyester…geez I hate that stuff! Nothing serious though…just some bodyworks repairs on my car and playing around with rc race boats.
So I decided to take the next step and start designing and making my own rc race boats. Thanks to the rand\dollar exchange it’s not cost effective to import a boat from overseas…shipping alone is more than the boat itself!
Why epoxy? Well all my polyester boats have pulled\warped that I have owned so far. Then the fun starts…not running or reacting like it should during a race. Flip it over and check with a straight edge…yes, pulled\warped.
I had one boat which didn’t have this problem…it was made out of carbon fiber. Made locally in Cape Town, South Africa. That thing was straight from the day I got it…and if I check it now I can promise you it’s still straight. So yes, epoxy for me please.
Anyway…because of the racing spirit in me, I find myself looking into epoxy resin infusion.
Have yourself a great day guys…njoy!
