Today, we’re looking at Chill Epoxy. Epoxies are incredibly useful in the woodworking world, for everything from filling in knots and voids to creating incredible finishes on tables. Epoxies are clear, but additives can be used to colour them. With all of the great things you can do with epoxies in mind, here’s why we love Chill Epoxy:
They’re a Canadian epoxy companyChill Epoxy products are made in Canada, by a Canadian company (Polymères Technologies).
That’s a great thing for two reasons. First, we’re a Canadian company, and we’re here to support the Canadian woodworking community. The more woodworking and woodworking-related companies in our country, the stronger our community will be. What can we say - we love representing Canada.
The second is that it means lower costs for us, and lower costs for you. Shipping costs are very real - buying epoxies from a Canadian company means shipping costs are lower.
They’re high-quality epoxies
Chill Epoxy offers some of the best epoxies available on the market anywhere. There are a lot of epoxies that come with solvents mixed in. Those epoxies release VOCs, which can be harmful both to the environment and to your health. Solvent-based epoxies are often less durable than their 100% epoxy cousins, too.
Chill Epoxy’s line of epoxy products are all 100% epoxy resin - that means no VOCs, and added durability, strength, and longevity.
The epoxies offered by Chill are also easy to mix, heat resistant, and impact resistant. In other words, if you want a woodworking project to last you for life, and you want to use epoxies in the project, Chill Epoxy is the way to go.
