Oil based paints, resins, stains and even epoxy can give off fumes that are toxic to herps. I would suggest that you use water based components if you must bond or seal surfaces. I would also suggest that you allow the water based product to thoroughly air dry for at least 72 hours prior to placing any herps in the cage.

This information comes from personal experience building cages and many conversations with major sealant manufacturers including Behr, Benjamin Moore and Minwax. Consult your local paint vendor for water based components.

Good Luck.

:I need an answer on something. I might be getting cages made from pressbord (partical bord with laminate), can it be sealed with Envirotex epoxy? Oil-based poly? or would the laminate be sufficent (for ball pythons) if I siliconed a piece of glass to the bottom?
