What is the difference between marine grade epoxy and table top epoxy? Does one bond better than the other to wood, is one better for outdoors?

Marine Grade Epoxy is used for coats that will be used in the marine application, such as general bonding, gluing, fiberglass work, and thickening application. Table Top Epoxy is used for coatings of tables, bar tops, and counters, and can also be used for various types of art work.
