Understanding the secret to a perfect "glass-like" finish using EcoPoxy UV Poxy, or other epoxy resin for coating, is easy. Following a few simple steps to prevent air bubbles is essential. Then I will explain how to properly use heat to de-gas, or remove, the bubbles after your pour.
MOST COMMON CAUSES OF AIR BUBBLES: All of these can be avoided! Overheating - No seal coat - Humidity - Temperature - Improper mixing - Layer too thick or too thin
Directions, advice, list of supplies and details to help you successfully complete your epoxy resin project. The following information is helpful when using FlowCast casting epoxy. This epoxy is made for pouring deep layers 0.5 - 1.5 inches deep. If this describes your project. this is for you.For clear coating projects, use UV Poxy.
Epoxy resin is sensitive to temperature and it's curing process can be compromised in low temperatures. Freezing causes the resin to crystallize or develop seed crystals and makes the resin much thicker than it's normal viscosity, reduce the polymer’s reaction rate, extend its cure time, and ultimately affect it's polymerization...
EcoPoxy epoxy resins are each designed for specific applications. The right choice for you will depend on how you intend to use it. Each type of epoxy resin is uniquely formulated and performs differently.Once you determine that epoxy resin is the right choice, you need to examine the options and select which EcoPoxy product is best suited for your project.
