Best results can be obtained at temperatures between 70°F and 84°F, in a clean, dry, dust-free environment. Avoid working in high humidity. We recommend using this product on a leveled and flat work surface.
Due to this product being mass sensitive, the warmer the environment, the shorter working time you will have, which is why we recommend mixing a maximum of 2 quarts, of total volume, at a time at 74F. If you are in a warmer environment mixing over 2 quarts, your working time will be severely restricted. After mixing, promptly pour it onto your surface. If your project requires more, once you spread the mass out by pouring onto your surface, you will have plenty of time to mix up another batch!
Prepare 1 part Base Resin to 1 part Curing Agent by liquid volume or 100 parts Base Resin to 83 parts Curing Agent by weight. Pour the Curing Agent first and then the Base Resin into a clean, smooth sided container large enough to hold all the liquid and allow room for mixing. We do not recommend mixing more than a half-gallon in a single container, as this product is mass dependent.
The material must be mixed thoroughly for a minimum of 3 minutes and maximum of 5 minutes. Once the material becomes crystal clear, you should be ready to pour. Be sure to scrape the container sides, bottom, and corners as you mix for the first 3 minutes, and after 3 minutes do not scrape the bottom and sides. Be careful to not whip excessive air into the mixture and stir like you would hot tea.
Pour the mixed resin onto the surface and distribute evenly with a gloved hand or the tool of your choice. Continue to pour remaining material to achieve the desired thickness, (up to 1/4”).
To remove bubbles, allow for them to rise (about 2 minutes). Then sweep your heatgun from side to side, at least 6” away from the epoxy. DO NOT try to “work out” the bubbles with your heatgun. Bubbles can only be popped once they reach the surface.
If you are going to make a second pour, the first pour should still be lightly sticky. Once the second pour is made, bubbles may once again need to be removed. Material will feel well-cured after 24 hours, depending upon the temperature.
