hi gary,this wa'apa is part of my master in design, here in Brazil. I am trying to reduce the toxicity of the building process as well the use of no recycle/biodegradable materials. resins are non toxic PU made from castor oil and also the expanded PU for the ama (biodegradable).achieving really good results, however I never reached a bonding as strong as epoxy does. at least it is an option for those sensitized by epoxy, like me... I don't think it will make any difference for the regular use. but it shure makes a lot of difference for the builders.time will tell if it is a real option. everything well documented.
