Re: Epoxy is Not Forever
Yep, sounds like UV degradation to me.
I made a couple of carbon fibre bits for my bike in July last year. I used normal West System resins on one part and their UV resistent resin on the other. Neither piece has had any further protection. The bike has had a lot of outside exposure over the last 16 months or so. The normal resin piece has badly discoloured and degraded a bit. The other piece is still fine.

I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"
