      Epoxy sensitivity is more serious. Once you get it the reaction will
      be more severe with each exposure. Vinylester resin is a good
      subsititute for epoxy. Polyester is not.

      The two-part urethanes would probably work as a resin but cost might
      be prohibitive for wetting fabric. As for one-part PU resin, well,
      maybe. There isn't that much urethane in plain old $25 a gallon PU
      varnish. It's mostly fillers.
