Cab-o-sil, colloidal silica, fumed silica all the same stuff. It is white. Epoxy is very slow to sand when thickened with silica. I have found the best method to color match fillets to the panels is to add a little wood flour to the silica epoxy mix. Mix the two parts of epoxy first, then add and mix the silica, then add the wood flour last just enough to match colors. All West products are expensive.
