So, here are my final tips:
(These temperatures apply to coating, puttys and clays too.)
So when you think resin, think warm thoughts.
The scientific answer from the company is much better though. The issue is crystallization. Due to the purity of EnviroTex resin, a clouding or settling of the resin may occur in extremely cold conditions. Should this “clouding” occur, place resin (there are two bottles in the kit, one marked resin and one marked hardener) container in hot water until resin clears. Allow resin to return to room temperature (approximately 70 F or 21c) before mixing with EnviroTex hardener. This condition will only happen on the resin side. You may need to repeat these steps.
Crystallization is a natural occurring phenomenon and is not a reflection of the quality of the product. When you move resin from cold to warm or warm to cold you are shocking it. It’s just like when I put my honey in the fridge. When I take it out it appears solid and white….but left on the warm counter for a while it returns to it’s liquid golden state. Keep your resin stored indoors in a nice, warm and dry cupboard.
