A simple to use and versatile resin

West System epoxy products were developed more than 40 years ago by Goujeon Brothers Inc. for the production of wooden boats. Renowned in the nautical industry throughout the world, they are still little used in France. Easy to use and economical, they cover a wide variety of uses, from plaster to adhesive, thanks to the choice of several hardeners and 8 different types of fillers.
