HOW TO USE EPOXY RESIN
Different methods can be used to apply epoxy resin. You can apply the resin using casting, rolling or with a brush. The choice of method depends on the subject, surface and the desired result.
Regardless of the method that you choose, certain conditions must be met. For example, the resin must be used in an environment with a minimum temperature of 15 °C. Applying resin at temperatures below this limit can result in surface imperfections and create bubbles that are difficult to remove.
In addition, the product should not be diluted with other solvents, but it should be thoroughly mixed by combining (A) Liquid Lens + (B) hardener, after weighing them according to the specified mixing ratio.
- The product is measured by weight and by correct mixing ratios.
- Stir the product thoroughly for at least 3-5 minutes.
- Do not use a mechanical stirrer.
- Apply according to the optimal specifications for the product.
- Avoid high humidity or cold ambient temperatures.
- To ensure optimal bonding, the surface must be clean.
