I tried this one:
http://easycomposites.co.uk/#!/resin-ge ... Resin.html

But initial tests revealed that it's somewhat softer, fingernails leave marks on it, and it's hardness is Shore 88-92A. Also, it gels quite fast, so if you want to degas it, there's very little time for error.

They do have a tougher resin, which I overlooked:
http://easycomposites.co.uk/#!/resin-ge ... resin.html
Which is Shore 75 - 80D, supposedly, much tougher.

I'd love to try it, and will probably order some when I'll need an epoxy refill.

regards,
pq

This was discussed many times, search is your friend...

Smooth-on is a go, many many options.
