I am almost certain my technique is far from elaborated.BWD wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 3:21 pmIf epoxy sticks but runs off too thin and/or leaves drips = resin too thin and/or wrong technique, try using tape and board position (rail up maybe?) to control flow. Can also be simply resin viscosity too low. 600+cps is better for top coats. Other tricks - apply resin at higher ambient temp so it gels faster or let resin sit in pot as long as you dare before applying it. Also, you can warm the resin base in warm water bath or briefly/gently in microwave (eg <5 seconds for an ounce. If more heat needed only increase by one second steps).
NEVER HEAT HARDENER.
Most boat and surfboard epoxies work best at temps 75-80F. Use hotter if you dare and lower temps if you are filling a void and need to avoid exothermic heat build up from cure, or need to make sure resin has enough time to flow before gelling.
Your repair looks great so far.
