Epoxi -Reply



Tammy -- Paul Anastas of EPA's Green Chemistry Program suggests:

"Acetoacetate esters. They've been used in windshield adhesives and
are much less hazardous then the typical compounds used. It should
meet the criteria she has set out."

Does anyone have any ideas on potential adhesives/epoxies/maskants that
are free or virtually free of hazardous chemicals?  The maskant would
need to bond to "highly polished" glass and be able to withstand,
cutting oil, caustics, and abrasives.
