35444Re: stupid little bubbles in my epoxy!
- Mar 29, 2004I know someone that used a spray bottle of standard off-the-shelf
rubbing alcohol. That was the type of epoxy used on table
tops/counters. Thicker than normal. Sprayed it on and the bottles for
whatever reason would go away. I have never tried it but maybe a
small science project would tell. I've used a heat gun. Problem I
think was that it was too hot. Curing didn't seem right. Maybe a hair
dryer with a lower heat would work.
