The Epoxy is Discolored or is Hard, What to do

Occasionally the resin (part A) can build up crystallization and/or gel, which makes the resin cloudy. Don't worry, there's an easy fix!

The hardener is darker or has turned yellow

Hardeners tend to amber over time when exposed to sunlight, air, or humidity. This doesn’t affect the cure or performance of the product. Only the appearance is affected.

The resin has hardened and/or turned white

Occasionally the resin (part A) can build up crystallization and/or gel, which makes the resin cloudy. Don't worry, there's an easy fix! The white or crystallized product may form when the resin has frozen during shipping or storage. Before using your kit, follow these steps to remove the crystallization. 

  1. Check to make sure the resin (part A) is crystal clear. If it is, go ahead and use it. If the resin is not clear, DO NOT mix and continue to the next steps.
  2. Put the whole jug into hot water until the resin reaches 50 degrees Celcius, or 122 degrees Fahrenheit. You can use other methods of heating as well, as long as they don't melt the container.

  3. Allow the product to cool to room temperature before using it. The warmer the resin, the shorter the working time.
