Epoxy is great stuff . I was wondering if a non-toxic variety of epoxy
has been developed yet ?

Not that I'm aware of.


In addition to these, there are many non-toxic epoxy coatings.

Food-Safe Adhesive
A two-component, low-viscosity EP48 epoxy has high strength and good
electrical insulation properties. It can be used to seal and coat metallic
and nonmetallic substrates and conforms to Title 21, U.S. Code of Federal
Regulations, FDA Chapter 1, Section 175-105 and 173.300 for food
applications. The epoxy has a 100:75 mix ratio and is 100% reactive. It
resists chemicals and prolonged submersion in water, dilute acids,
alkalines, aggressive organic solvents, ethanol, isopropanol, mineral
spirits, and gasoline. EP48 has a Shore-D hardness of 70+ and a tensile
strength of 5 kpsi. It is available in pint, gallon, and 5-gallon kits.
