Default Type of Epoxy???

Is it important to use an epoxy that doesn't shrink or expand? Anybody use the gorilla epoxy? or loctite instant-mix? both have high impact and water resistant and probably will do the job but doesn't mention whether it will shrink or expand. I was also looking at loctite marine epoxy which doesn't shrink or expand but nothing about impact resistance. Which one should i get? By the way, the damage to my board is on the tip of the nose so not on any contact point. Thanks.

West System is meant to be the bees knees in epoxy.

What do you want to do with it? Specific application will dictate much about your best option.

Your best bet is to go to your local ski/snowboard shop with a few empty 35mm film containers, and ask for a dab of the industrial epoxy they use. That stuff is damn near impossible for the general public to get, but it's the right stuff that will fix it right the first time.

Do you know what epoxy it is that most shops use for repair? I was thinking that 3M 8115 would work really well for board repair, it was originally for automotive panel bonding and will stick ravenously to anything I've used it on but stays pretty flexable when cured. We used it for bonding stainles steel stencils to a nylon mesh at a previous job of mine. You can get it at any autobody supply shop, industrial finishes for example.
