Re: resin compatibility

If the resin got cloudy because of low temperatures (extended time near freezing causing crystals to form) it can be cleared up by simply letting the sealed bottle sit in hot water for anywhere from 1 to 8 hours (depending on the water temperature and the amount of crystalization). Crystalized epoxy will not cure properly until the crystals are removed by heating. Crystalization can also cause pumps to stop working. Pumps can be cleared out by putting them in a plastic bag and then hot water.
Crystalization can be avoided by keeping the resin at room temperature. Bring it inside for the winter.
