Common Epoxy Problems & Instant Solutions

Using an epoxy resin is a delicate business that requires precision. Despite the utmost care, it is virtually impossible to prevent any mistake for an epoxy craft.

You are bound to come across at least one of these problems listed below. But don’t you worry! We’ve made sure to offer apt solutions for each one of these to bring you seamless craftsmanship of epoxy resin. Let’s troubleshoot:

The Annoying Particles

You will come across this problem the most. Something like an insect, fly, or debris may fall in your wet epoxy. That can ruin the appeal of your epoxy resin. To prevent anything like that, you can utilize a wooden stick or a tweezer to pick the foreign object and discard it.

***The best way to eliminate this problem is to prevent it. Use a clean box or container to cover the project. 

However, make sure that you do it while the epoxy is still wet. Once it starts gelling or hardening, this becomes problematic. 

 

Melancholy Of Uneven Surface

You can solve these problems by utilizing a perfectly flat surface underneith your project. Take control of the temperature of your room and make sure that epoxy dries out and hardens evenly. Ensure proper ventilation and low humidity is maintained. Eliminate bubbles with the use of a torch or heating device to release bubbles.

 

Waves And Ripples

Another widespread problem you may encounter is the formation of waves and ripples in the epoxy resin. It is seemingly unavoidable when working with wood. The single best solution for this is to use an extra coating of epoxy resin to pre-treat the wood. Additionally, a seal coat provides an extra layer to the epoxy, which will prevent bubbles as well.

For the final touch, add a final flood coat for a seamless finish.

I love this product, I use the 7050 for my projects. I don’t have to use a mask when mixing the resin, and it is truly clear. While mixing I get bubbles but they’re easy to get rid of which is a 👍🏽👍🏽. I also always receive emails for discounts! Recommend it to anyone with or without experience 😊 five stars for me ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

I’m building some small dinning tables out of reclaim red oak flooring. Which I ran through a planner to remove original finish. Im having a problem with very small tiny bubbles everywhere. As soon as I pop them with heat they come wright back even more within seconds. Never had this problem with Pine, red cedar, magnolia, hickory, sweet gum, oak or spruce.
Thanks JMc
