QUESTION:

What is the solution to mixing material and avoiding bubbles? 

 

ANSWER:

Without a doubt the best way to mix two fluids, air free, is with a speed mixer, or dual asymmetric centrifuge.  Such mixers use two types of centrifugal forces to non-invasively and thoroughly mix the contents in disposable mix jars.  They do a great job.  The only down side is they are expensive.

Any other kind of mechanical mixing entrains air.  Standard methods of dealing with bubbles are vacuuming and centrifuging.  These are generally rapid and effective ways of vanquishing bubbles.
