Re: bubbles in epoxy coat

Don't know about those cosmic rays but I've had exactly the same problem. The only cure I've found is to wait about an hour, if your shop is around 75, and go back over the surface with a foam brush. This takes out the fisheyes and the epoxy will still flow enough to smooth out. The only cause of fisheying (new word) I can figure out has to do with the surface tension of the epoxy. Okay, I am a rocket scientist. As the epoxy starts to harden the surface tension increases which causes it to bond better with the epoxy around it.
My 3 cents worth... (inflation, you know)
