What the hell? No, seriously, WHAT THE HELL?? I just came back from art friend, and bought resin. It costed me $70. The catalyst was another $12. And you got both for only $24.50??! Can I see some pics of the tin of resin please? I need to know how much resin you bought to compare.

The place in shaw centre sells resin for $75, but it's not worth it. Too little resin. It also sells fiberglass, but it has no brand. I'll post pics soon in another thread on the noob forum. As for the last question, I do not know.

That's cheap. MEKP. Beware of that stuff. In one of the threads here,

Darth-Malevelus said:
Please understand I am not trying to cotradict here, IF you are going to use the polyester resin with MEKP (Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide) Please use the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Chemical resistant gloves, goggles, tyvek coveralls (impermeable) And most of important of all,.... FOLLOW THE MIXING DIRECTIONS!!!
I have been doing Advance Composite Repair for more the 16 years now in the US. Navy, in fact the US NAVY has banned the use of MEKP completely due to its rather nasty habit of destroying internal organs.
Dont mix it hot, you will make your resin brittle, and you will also risk a possible exothermic reaction. (simply put) a chemical fire you cannot put out.

There are so many other types of resin to use that are easier to mix, like 1 to 1 ratio resins that dont use MEKP. I would highly reccomend using those instead!

It is safe to use provided you strictly adhere to what the can say to do.

I hope this helps!


As for fiberglass, like I said, it can be found in Shaw centre. 4th floor shop called Handyman.

you don't have to use fiber glass cloth you can use any obsorbent cloth thats how i made a custom speaker enclosure

I suppose you could do that if you are in a real bind. Fiberglass is gonna be much stronger in the end than fleece or muslin but you work with what you got!
