Some Tips & Tricks when working with Epoxy

– Always consult your supplier for the best epoxy for your floor

– Use plastic foil, at least 1mm thick, near your working surface, to cover floor where

you mix epoxy, leave tolls etc.

– Use a proper size of a drill mixer and a slower gear of your drill mixer to mix epoxy

– If the epoxy is old always mix each component separately for approximately 1 min,

before putting all the components together

– Use a large enough bin with alcohol to clean your tools during the work with epoxy

– You can use the same alcohol a few times for cleaning your tools

– Always put hardener (B component) in resin (A component)

– Mix A+B epoxy resins for at least 1 minute

– Use as much precision scale as you can for measuring raisin and hardener weight. The best are digital electronic scales.

– Provide alcohol and clean clouts to clean smudge of epoxy spill outside the working

surface

– When brushing concrete, strew some quartz sand 0, 1-0, 3 mm on working surface

for better cleaning of all kinds off smudges

– Use eye protection glasses

– Wear rubber gloves. You will probably have to throw them away after you have

finished working with epoxy

– You can heat the epoxy a bit, if it’s too cold, but never come near the resin with

an open flame

– Heat the room if it’s too cold. The air will raise the temperature of the floor surface a

bit

– Separate your A resin from your B resin in your storage place

– The storage place must be cool and dry

– Do not expose epoxy to sunlight

– Only mix the amount of epoxy that you can use within the pot life

– Dispose of Epoxy waste properly
