QUESTION:

What happens if you overmix epoxy?

 

ANSWER:

The possibility of overmixing is more likely. The goal is to thoroughly blend Part A and Part B with minimal bubbles. (In the production process, you don’t want to dispense a bubble instead of drop of epoxy.) If you mix too vigorously, you can trap air and introduce bubbles. If you’re overly enthusiastic, you’ll get a “foamy” epoxy that looks like whipped cream.

Note that a few bubbles will appear in properly mixed epoxy. You may have heard the advice to mix the epoxy for 1 minute or 90 seconds. Based on our experience, we recommend 25 uniform passes using a consistent mixing rhythm that minimizes bubbles.
