System Three’s S1 sealer (formerly Industrial Formulators’ S1 sealer) is a penetrating epoxy that will go about anywhere diesel will go… very thin. It is food safe. If you build a few coats it will provide a very nice surface and will be completely waterproof. I’ve used it for wooden water tanks on boats. It is not a thick layer on top of the wood like many others, rather it penetrates and locks into the grain.

Generally epoxies are not brittle like polyesters and are unlikely to chip.

Not all epoxies have amine blush. An example is Cold Cure, another former Industrial Formulators, now System Three product….... The best boat building epoxy ever IMHO.
