Most upholstery companies prefer to not have the panels resin or epoxy coated, as it's difficult to shoot the staples into, also, resin isn't waterproof. I always coat the wood in International alluminium yacht primer, although I also use Foamex for infill panels, and Vetus Polywood for load bearing panels.

Wow, cheers Nugent. I'll get measuring in a bit.


Dirk, I was planning on epoxy coating the bases with penetrating primer.
Is it likely to cause issues with fabric if I shoot the staples in while the primer is wet?

I'm thinking that if I do it that way, it'll seal the bases and the staples in so I shouldn't get any issues with the bases-hopefully ever....

if it works, its a great idea. Problem for me is that I have just spent the week coating my new bow seat plywood base in 4 coats of epoxy.

Use foamex bases and s/s staples. Sunseeker utilise this composition and I followed suit for my complete reupholster last month. Great material to work with light, strong, versatile and doesn't rot!!

I can get hold of 8ftx4ft sheets easily if you are interested.
