Default Epoxy for making propellers

Hi!
Where in Europe can I get a good (strong and hard) 24-30 hour epoxy for making propellers?

Default RE: Epoxy for making propellers

whilst I do not live in Europe I will tell you what I use here in New Zealand. I use a prepreg epoxy known here as ADH/ADR for my propellers. It has to be heat cured around the 60C then 'post' cured ramping from 60C-100C over a 4 hour period. Ramping is increasing the temperature by 10C/hour. Others I have spoken to use a ARALDITE LC3600-that should be available in your part of the World, trevor H, Christchurch, NZ

I use M.G.S. Epoxy products for making propellers. It is a German product.

Hexion Specialty Products
Stuttgart GmbH
Am Ostkai 21/22
D - 70327 Stuttgart

At least that is what is written on the side of the can. I hope it helps.
