A New Resin

A somewhat greener resin we are about to try out.  It is partially made from plant-based materials.  From the literature we would never use enough to make a big difference but every bit counts.  Its available in a standard formulation and also one for infusion.  We most likely wouldn't be using it for our kayaks as it is not recommended for use under the waterline without a barrier coat.  The numbers from the spec sheets are quite good especially when compared to less expensive polyester resins.
