    Re: its still wet

    Just depends on the tempature and type/amount of hardener used. If its below 80* it could take all night to harden fully.

    Re: its still wet

    all depends on the amount of hardener, more chemical than temperature isn't it ?

    Resin/Hardner Ratio?. I believe it is 24 drops of hardner to 4oz of resin. Could be wrong, been awile since I have used it.

    I have done fiberglas in many different temps. For me it always seems when it did not dry I never had enogh hardner in it.

    Re: its still wet

    you could, but if its been a LONG time, you might wanna mix up a batch with extra hardener in it and lay it on QUICKLY to help the process along.

    Re: its still wet

    A fan wont really do much. Its a chemical reaction. It sounds like you may have not put enough hardener in if the temp outside it pretty warm. You will just have to wait until it hardens up a bit more. It doesnt have to be fully hardened before you add another layer. Just keep working and get pics

    LOL, classic.

    But I've had it take anywhere from like 10 mins in this Florida sun, to about a day if it's night and cold.

    then, if it does even dry, it wont even go hard... it'll probably just end up tacky...



    I am about to get banned for my stupidity.
