I’ve been using my epoxy in air conditioning set to 24 degrees so humidity isn’t such an issue but my epoxy is at least 12 months old.
Re transfer problems with Epoxy .
I did two transfers yesterday with 5 minute Araldite and both worked fine !! I was concerned that the mix was very runny so with one of them I left the transfer for about 2 or 3 minutes before using it and it had started to thicken before applying it . Both transfers worked OK. I guess I'll be an Araldite convert from now on!! T hanks for all your input.
I thought you were from around Harvey Bay/Bundaberg, are you in Brisbane?
"Sandstone Lakes", about 4min drive from Bribie Island. I refer to myself as living in Brisbane as it would be the nearest place to me other members would know.
Always mix a small amount of Kaolin powder with the 5 minute epoxy. It sets much faster and harder, but still leave for a couple of hours. You can purchase kaolin powder through e-bay. I've used a few different epoxy mixes but I found JB Kwik is the best in that only a small amount of heat is required to release the stone. Some of the others need a fair bit of heat.
after experiencing the same issues as John with my JB Kwick, I have started putting a toothpick into the top of the black tube and stirring it’s contents before use. The last 2 dops have worked like new.
This is tending me to believe that separation of the epoxy in the tube is the culprit rather than humidity or oxidation.
