MAS Slow, in Houston

Posted by Charlie Jones on Jul 21, 2005

this time of year should be like a rock in about 3 - 4 hours, and sandable in 5 to 6.

I work with epoxy all the time in Victoria, even when my shop is sitting at the 100 (or higher) degree mark. I have to since I make my living doing it. You just have to work with smaller batches is all. I can even glass hulls in 100 degree temps with no problems.

If your epoxy took that long, I'd be willing to bet you used two shots of resin, and one of hardener, rather than ONE pump of each.

30 hours for MAS to cure is a 50 - 60 degree cure rate.
