Hey copperhead....Depending on what you are using the epoxy for....a good ordinary epoxy with fine ebony dust mixed in with it might do the trick for you...Lab

can anyone tell me where to buy a some black epoxy and other glues in canada ,like the stuff like stewart macdonald carries seems they wont ship that stuff to canada
I haven't found it in Canada although I'm sure you can get it somewhere. I get mine from Stewmac but then I live close to the border and drive across to pick it up. I am currently in the states and will be for the best of the rest of the month. If you don't find some before then let me know and I bring some back and mail it to you. Least I can do for someone stuck in Botwood. (My Ex is from Botwood) Let me know by the 20th, I'm going to order some more for myself anyway.

Been there and done that. LOL But I think I drank the screech before I kissed the cod. I always like to get the shitty task out of the way first. :food-smiley-004:

black epoxy

I buy West System Epoxy at Lee Valley or a local boat supply house.Next, I'd get some black ( or any other colour) Aniline dye and when mixing the epoxy,
stir in some of the dye to the desired depth of colour. A little experiment is
probably in order,but you'll find it works great.

Since it's water soluble, it would probably work in any water based Yellow glue. :food-smiley-004:

Sorry, I forgot to mention you'd also need an adhesive filler such as the 403
microfiber to thicken the mix.This one us used for wood /porous materials.

Then there's 404 high density for hardware bonding requiring a stronger interface between dissimilar materials.(for use in attaching rope cleats etc. to the deck of your yacht.)
