Although each Epoxy.com may have slight variations in
installation technique, this guide is an excellent tool when
installing the following Epoxy.com Products:
Primers can be one of the most important considerations
of your installation. Most of the products covered
under this installation guide can be installed without a
primer. However, there can be major advantages to your
job if you use the right primer. For more information
on the right primer for your job please visit our
Primers & Sealers page
or contact Epoxy.com Technical Support at 714-657-3826.
Preparing to Mix Resin and Hardener Together
A new clean 5 gallon metal or plastic pail makes a great
mixing bucket. Always be sure that your mixing buckets are clean
and not contaminated with anything before mixing. Some people like to use the
two bucket method. That allows the person mixing to be
mixing while your installation people are installing the
previous batch of material. That way there is no
waiting between batches.
If your material shows signs of hardening in the
bucket. Use a new bucket. If you don't use a new bucket, you will shorten
your next batch and risk getting hardened "lumps" in
your fresh mix.
Stir Each Component Separately
Stir the resin "A" and the Hardener "B" each separately in
their original container. Be sure to use separate stir
sticks or paddle mixers for each component. Do not cross
contaminate, the "A" and "B". This should be done before mixing
the "A" and the "B" together. But this should only have to
be once per container, in any given day.
Layout your Equipment and Material
Layout your material and equipment in advance of getting
started. Materials have a short pot-life. The
pot-life of a material is the amount of time after you mix it
before it sets up. Remember that the published pot-life
for your material is based on a very specific temperature and
volume. Large batches set faster, and material sets even
faster when it is hot. So it pays to be prepared.
You will want to think through all the details of the job,
ahead of time. Have plenty of rollers, roller covers,
paint brushes, pails, etc. If you are well prepared you may not
need these items, but if you are not prepared and you need them,
you will not be very happy with the situation you find yourself
It is helpful to put some duct tape on any of the premeasured
sticks that you will use in a pigmented side or sides of a
coating. It will make it easer to wipe off the stick and
see the line accurately.
Be sure to properly protect the floors you will be mixing on.
One method to insure accurate mix ratios is to put measurements
on sticks, with the appropriate mix ratio. The picture to
the right is a picture of a 2:1 mix ratio, using this method
