help with Epo-Grip epoxy odor

Submitted by Dale on 01/24/2003. ( )

I notice that taxidermist are using Epo-Grip adhesive for plastic ear liners,the 2 part epoxy that I have has a strong odor and I'm afraid the odor might not go away. Any experiences with this or other adhesive ideas? Thanks,Dale

That smelly smell

Epo-Grip does have a smell but once it is cured it the smell goes away. As far as we are concerned, we can live with the temporary smell because it is an excellent product. Besides that smelly smell is much nicer than Bondo.


Have I burnt out my olfactory sensors too?

I've never noticed any significant smell from the liquid fast set. Guess all those years of using Lock-tite burned out my smeller. Course, Bondo used with just the right amount of resin lets me take trips without leaving the farm.

The odor is slight, compared to polyester products and much less dangerous than acrylics and polyesters. There are some individuals who are allergic to urethanes, but the numbers are very low. The odor from the auto-generated gases is temporary, non-toxic and does not exist in the cured product.

George, maybe not. i read Dales post a few times and i can't tell if he is using Epo-Grip or something else. i like the smell of the Epo-Grip water base glue.
