    Hardener Pro/Con

    I'am almost ready to glass my canoe, and would like to know the resulting looks of West System hardeners 206 and 207(clear).
    My supplier said most people use 205/206 with good results.
    I would hate to ruin the looks of the Western Cedar planks, because of cost.
    The West System Manual states the 207 hardener finishes to a light amber colour and is more difficult to mix in fillers, so what colour is the 205/206 hardener.

    West System 206 Hardener will be slightly darker, and not as clear as the 207. You will also have more blush with the 206. Either East System, or MAS with slow hardener have less blush, better clarity and lower viscosity than West.
