Here's a link to the various grades of resin; its a good primer that differentiates the various qualities of resins that make up marine and RV skins (so you understand the base resins towards repairing Filon: [url=http://www.redrockstore.com/resin.htm]Risins that make up RV and boat skins (can be Filon)[/url] [url=http://www.boatus.com/boattech/Casey/02.htm]Don Casey's gelcoat repair[/url] [url=http://www.westsystem.com/ewmag/22/fiberglass.html]Tom Pawlak's epoxy-over-polyester repair[/url] The resin used to make Filon is the last one: 'Polyester resin' Enjoy, Silver- [On edit: the 1st link is not an academic site filled with crosslinking polymer chemistry, but is basic, and a jumping point to more complex info]

BTW:

Coats of epoxy resin is used in some cases to preserve the Filon for: "...many more seasons than it would otherwise last..."

I don't advocate doing this yourself, as epoxy resin application over an entire Filon-clad TC would be impossible to do outside a properly equiped facility.
