Thanks a lot guys, big motivation now! Let's go epoxy. I'll send some picture as soon as I finished them.
Looking forward to seeing them.
Alcool a brûler = spirit alcool = Zippo alcool. The less the best, only in thin epoxy coat where it can evaporate before resin set otherwise it'll keep resin softer. For poly finish on epoxy go with poly gloss. Only way to clean a brush to be reusable with no problèm is to use ketone base solvent, skin sensitize dangerous with epoxy. For noserider, keep weight high, no matter material you use.
Hey thanks Lemat,
Any ideas about the proportions with spirit alcool for the coat?
If you are concerned about the polishing abilites, you still have the option to epoxy the board and finally apply a 2K Polyurethane varnish. this does not only shine, it gives a good UV protection too, diminishing the tendency of some epoxies to yellow over time.
I've seen that yeah, I think I'll do that for my longboard. Thanks Surferdude
I've glassed longboards with epoxy and double 4oz cloth with a slight tweak to weave orientation between layers. It definitely passes my informal thumb pressure test. I.E. no dents or flexing noted.
You may have heard that carbon fiber fabric = stiff boards? S-Cloth has approx. the same tensile strength so there's that... actually, the numbers indicate that S-cloth may be even stiffer. The chart to which I've linked indicate it has better impact resistance as well.
