Would premixed, frozen epoxy work better for my process?
Our customers who use premixed, frozen epoxy report two major benefits: (1) No need to worry about improper mixing due to operator error. Epoxy that is overmixed, undermixed, or has excessive bubbles can impact quality and disrupt the production process. (2) Using premixed, frozen epoxy helps to streamline the production process, since it’s in your freezer and ready to use, with no preparation other than a few minutes to thaw. Depending on your process and goals, using premixed, frozen epoxy can contribute to a streamlined process with higher-quality products.
