The scales were on the bottom of the jar, and no more air bubbles were released after adding some more pressure, so I took out the scales to dry. They’re noticeably heavier.

You can either replace the lid with a new one, or just re-pressurize the jar to store the stabilizer.

Are these test pieces? Do you plan on cutting them open to see how far penetration goes?

They are larger than the scales need to be, so I will cut through one side to try to suss out how well it penetrated, yes.

Cool, cant wait to see what the inside looks like once you cut it open. I wonder how long it will take to cure all the way through?

The Stick Fast Stabilizer Resin has a a UV Additive. You can shine a black light on the cut piece and actually see the penetration. Easy.

Have your say...
