It’s what everyone uses for that type project
Just make sure you have the time to get it all set and ready before it sets up on you

slow setting (30-60 minute) epoxy will give you ample time
to vibrate “most” of the air bubbles out of the mix.
quicker than 15-20 minutes could lead to less than satisfactory results.
not knowing how much space you are talking about, you could build
a “box” that will sit over the pour and use your shop-vac to remove
most of the trapped air.

A heat gun will cause the bubbles to rise and dissipate. When I think of slow setting epoxy, I think in terms of hours – not minutes.

Thanks, gang. This is something I’ve been wondering about for some time. I’ve got an upcoming project and this info will really help.

Have your say...
