Re: Bedding compound

Both Devcon Plastic Steel and MarineTex have the least shrinkage when cured as well as resistance to bore cleaners when compared to so many other epoxies. They've got good strength, too.

Re: Bedding compound

I have used Devcon for years but switched to Marine-Tex due to the ever increasing cost of Devcon.
I like them both but to be honest, if cost were not a factor I would still pick Marine-Tex. It just seems to work a little easier for me.

On a side note, Devcon and I think Marine-Tex have a shelf life and you should pay attention to that.
