My Resin has failed to cure (Harden) Why and what can I do - help?

February 5, 2018

So your laminate is still wet and the resin uncured. There aren't any other symptoms.

 

This can happen for the following reasons

  1. The resin and catalyst haven't been mixed thoroughly enough

  2. You have used the wrong catalyst for example summer catalyst in winter

  3. You haven't added enough catalyst to cope with the temperature

What do you do?

  1. Check you are using the right catalyst for the season/temperature

  2. Catalyse another batch of resin with increased level of catalyst (double if necessary)

  3. Roll this new batch vigorously in to the deck resin

 

Tips -

  • always check the temperature before adding hardener

  • always check the mixing chart, not once but twice
