    Fiberglass question

    When just using the resin, do I use the hardening mix too? Or is that only when using the fiberglass with it? Sorry for the ******* question, never worked with fiberglass, but it's really interesting, and I'm building a new box soon.

    Yep got to use the catalyst too. The resin will take years to cure with out it

    Yes, use the hardener. Mix it at 1-2% hardener to resin. 2% if it is colder than 60 degrees, 1% if it is really warm. Do not follow the directions on the can or you will end up with glass hardened in your mixing cup.

    Ok thanks guys, the instructions on the resin can didn't say how to use it without the fiberglass part. I just want to resin the inside of the box and add some glass to some corner joints later. Thanks!!!
