Don't Do These Things
When Mixing and Installing Epoxy


  • Do not mix an entire unit at once unless your experience has proven that you can mix a batch this size under the conditions that you are working. Always start by mixing small batches and slowly increase your batch sizes as needed.
  • Do not contaminate the two components  (resin and/or hardener), always keep them separated from each other
  • Do not use epoxies without proper personal protection equipment
  • Do not use epoxy on unclean or unsound surfaces
  • Do not use epoxy on applications in direct sunlight, they will yellow, instead use Urethanes
  • Do not improperly dispose of an epoxy until it hardens
  • Do not mix batches of epoxy that you cannot use within the specified pot life. Remember that epoxies set much faster at warmer temperatures.
  • Do not store your epoxies in hot areas. Storage at hot temperatures will shorten the shelf life.
  • Do not store your epoxy in cold area.  Cold storage can dramatically shorten your shelf life.
  • Do not mix epoxy that are very warm.  They will have a very shot pot-life.
  • Do not use epoxy after they start getting hot
  • Do not use an epoxy after they start to thicken
  • Do not mix epoxy "A" resin into epoxy "B" hardener, instead mix epoxy hardener "B" component into epoxy resin component "A"
  • Do not stir epoxy only by hand, instead use a drill mixer of proper size
  • Do not use an epoxy that you are not sure rather it got mixed right or not.  If you do not know if a batch is mixed correctly set it aside and mix a new batch.
  • Do not mix your epoxies in unclean pails. Always use clean pails to mix your epoxy in.
  • Do not spread epoxy with a foam or sponge spreader.
  • Do not forget to get all your questions answered before starting your job.  Don't make any assumptions.  When in doubt call Epoxy.com tech support.
  • Do not use Epoxies when temperatures of the air or the substrate will drop below 50 degrees F. Without first consulting with Epoxy.com Tech service for cold installation.
  • Do not forget to allow extra time for epoxy to cure when working at lower temperatures.
  • Do not wait more than 24 hours before your next coat of epoxy..  If for some reason this doesn't happen be sure to sand off all shine on the earlier coat, and do a damp wipe with xylene just before installing the next coat.
