Have you ever looked at someone or something and thought, this is the reason i am going to jail.
Well that happened tonight. After spending 2.5 hours applying eco epoxy resin to the board in 30+ degree heat in the garage. I awoke to find the resin hadn’t set. It was a tacky mess. Spent a few hours scraping off the tacky resin only to re-apply and have the same shit happen again. whyyyyy?
According to google, there are a few reasons why this might occur
1. Incorrect Ratio of Epoxy : Hardener
2. Insufficient Mixing time of the epoxy parts
Turns out, you have to be quite specific with the epoxy mix and I had stupidly been applying a 1:1 ratio when it was closer to 2:1
*slaps forehead (it’s been that long since i last worked on this project)
lesson learnt. I’ve re-applied and hopefully we’ll see a better result in the morning.
