I highly doubt those kits from CTire are epoxy resins, i'm pretty much sure they are polyester "Poly" resin.....they stink too much vs epoxy that dosen't smell at all...

Re: dollar store epoxy?

Well, well, well. What a great topic to discuss. I wish that it had not been brought up, as I WAS going to ask the same thing a couple days ago, BEFORE I used Dollarama Epoxy to glue the wing halves and spar doublers together on my LST 1/2A Trainer. I forgot to start the topic, did the deed, then thought I really don't want to know..... Anyways, this summer will be a flight report.

Anyways, I will check on the name of the stuff used and post back.

Re: dollar store epoxy?

funny as bad a polyester smells it's not as harmful as epoxy .that stuff is real bad when inhaled .carbon fiber is also horrible stuff. caution should be used with either,always wet sand , do it out doors with a don't want that stuff floating around the house.

Re: dollar store epoxy?

Regarding dollar store stuff - I was glad to find an Elmers Glue Stick/Glue Pen but just had to throw it away! Other stuff (especially photo printing paper) has been fine.
