Epoxy systems are adhesives and bond to many surfaces. If adhesion is not desired, surfaces must be made non-porous with a suitable sealer, such as wax, PVA, lacquer or other coatings. The surfaces must then be coated with a release agent such as Pol-Ease® 2300 Release Agent. Poly 74- Series rubber molds require only a light, thorough coating of Pol-Ease 2300 for excellent release of epoxy castings. Perform a small test cure.
PolyPoxy and PolyCure liquids must be mixed in the ratios shown below. Mix ratios are by weight except for PolyPoxy 1010 and PolyCure 1220, which can be mixed 1:1 by volume. PolyPoxy and PolyCure must be thoroughly mixed and poured as soon as possible after mixing to ensure low viscosity and good flow. Watch a clock to avoid being caught with unused, cured material.
Before use, read product labels and Safety Data Sheets. Follow safety precautions and directions. PolyCures cause severe eye and skin burns. PolyPoxy resins may cause skin irritation and sensitization. Avoid contact and breathing vapors. Wear personal protective equipment. Use only with adequate ventilation. In case of eye contact, flush with water for 15 minutes and then seek medical attention. WARNING: The epoxy cure reaction is very exothermic. Do not cast large masses -- doing so can result in a fire!
