Making this one resin so versatile for the whole range of projects. You can use it as a coating resin. One 'Bubble Free' resin for all Timber Work projects.

Coverage depends on temperature (Epoxy resins before mixing act a little like honey - in that in summer, they are very runny while in winter they are very stiff) and so coverage can vary up from 250 grams per square meter per coat.
Clean all brushes, rollers and fibreglass tools with Acetone or MEK. Fibreglass Cloth and other materials are all available separately from our store. As with all epoxies, it is always good practice to use protective gloves , and eye glasses (just in case you splash resin in your eye - Just flush with water if you do). Handy also to wear an apron, just in case of spills. We have available a special hand cleaner available for cleaning up, but you can also use soap and water or white vinegar to clean your hands if you prefer.

This "Bubble Free' Clear Epoxy Resin we say is the best value high performing resin on the market because it can be used for so many applications
Please Note: As this product is a very pure epoxy. And it acts in a similar manner to just like pure honey (epoxies act similar to honey in that, during winter, honey is extremely thick and yet in summer, that same honey is very thin and runny). So to it is with epoxies. And just like pure honey which sometimes turns into sugar? Pure Epoxy resin can act in a similar way and develop crystals (usually in part A). This is not from faulty resin but common thought is that it is from the cyclic hot days and cold nights when stored. An easy fix is to heat the jugs up in very hot water (60 deg C) for about 30 mins and this will restore the resin to be perfectly clear. That heating is also a good thing to help remove air bubbles trapped in the epoxy due to transportation.
If I have to do a critical pour or application, as a tip, I heat the jugs up the day before the pour to 60 deg C by placing them in hot water and then let them cool down prior to the day of my pour. Additionally when mixing the two parts. I decant into the mixing container by pouring down the side of the container. All this effort is to try to limit any possible air bubbles that could ruin the finished product. Even when mixing, I use a wide rule and do not even take it off the bottom of the mixing container. Mixing is so important to get the best results and can take 3 to 5 mins. I like to use a flame torch to the finished product just after it has been poured (or to a lesser extent, one can use - Bubble Buster spray to achieve a similar result) to help remove any bubbles generated when mixing and to help them come to the surface.
We know that you will understand that the cost of freight to distant or remote areas in some cases is more expensive than the item itself. As such a surcharge for transport sometimes has to be applied to cover the long distances or remote areas of Queensland, NT and Western Australia and some other places. We will contact you if you are in one of these areas and advise of the surcharge and can even send you an invoice for this surcharge prior to sending the goods.
