Subject: product environment safety

We are finishing a log home that was started over 4 years ago. We a have a spot that is starting to rot. We would like to know if your product is harmful to the environment as this home is in contact with our drinking water.
The epoxy is carried into the wood with highly evaporative solvents. It smells
bad at first but the solvents evaporate into the air and nothing remains but
the epoxy, which is now solid and non-toxic. Generally the CPES never reaches
the ground, and if it does it evaporates away long before it could ever get
into your water supply. Even so, if you were concerned a simple plastic tarp
on the ground would eliminate the solvent ever touching the earth.
Come back if you have more questions, and thanks for your interest.
