Do With Epoxies for Quality Installation

Do the following when mixing and installing epoxy:

Attention Do these things if you want a successful high quality installation of epoxy
  • Only mix the amount of epoxy that you can use in 1/2 the pot-life. Materials will start to thicken at this point and are more difficult to work with.
  • Large batches will set up faster than smaller batches. Start by mixing small batches and then increase your batch size slowly, to insure that you do not loose your mix.
  • Mix all epoxy thoroughly at least three minutes
  • Take time to measure all epoxy accurately
  • Use clean buckets for measuring epoxy in
  • Use two separate clean buckets one for A resin and one for B resin
  • Always mix B Resin into A Resin
  • Remember warmer epoxies set much faster then cooler epoxies, so start by making small batches.
  • Remember that colder epoxies set much slower than cooler epoxies, so allow extra time for curing.
  • Remember that if epoxy is cooler when you mix it, it will take longer to cure.  Allow for that extra time.
  • Remember that the temperature that Most effects the cure time of is the substrate temperature, followed by the temperature of the material when it is mixed, and to a lesser degree the temperature of the air.
  • Wear rubber gloves when using Epoxies
  • Wear eye protection when using Epoxies
  • Scrape all the Resin out of both A & B containers
  • Dispose of Epoxy waste properly
  • Read all labels before beginning the job
  • Do separate your A resin from your B resin when your order comes in and make sure that everything you  ordered has been delivered before starting your job
  • If you must start and stop your job in the middle, contact technical support to be sure your method of handling that stoppage is appropriate. For aesthetic reasons if you must stop a floor or a coating it is always best to stop at a masked-off line. Then remove the tape before the epoxy starts to harden.
  • Always make sure that you have enough material and job supplies to complete your job before you start it.
  • Do ask Questions - When in doubt call Epoxy.com Tech Support at 352-533-2167
  • Clean Epoxies off all skin surfaces as soon as possible
  • Mix Epoxies in small quantities
  • Use Epoxies on only clean and sound substrates
  • Use a clean pail to mix your Epoxy in
  • Use a drill mixer of proper size to mix your epoxy with
  • Do use the right product for the right job
