Epoxy on the bottom of a blade

Can someone explain to me how much to put/if its worth it/what to do kind of thing? I've heard of this before (here) and would like to try this on my composite blades that I use for outdoor inline hockey (on a rink)

I used to use an automotive product: P-O-R 15 on my son's wood blades. painted the entire blade twice before taping. The blades lasted way longer with no delamination at the bottom from moisture.

Good luck

I remember someone had said they lined the bottom of his blade with epoxy, and I wonder if I do this if It will hold up for inline on a rink. Im at the point with my last blade that I can see the cardboard or whatever it is in the blade from the bottom

I haven't done it, but I would assume it's mean to prevent wood blades from soaking up water and swelling.

If that's the case, it wouldn't do anything for a composite blade.
