How to handle, use, and dispose of System Three® products.
How do I clean up resin, hardener, and any uncured epoxy?
Solvents such as lacquer thinner, denatured alcohol, and acetone may used for cleaning spilled resin and hardener. Lacquer thinner is the best choice for cleaning any mixed uncured epoxy.
Do I need to wear a mask when working with your materials?
Wearing an organic vapor respirator is necessary in the following situations:
Spraying Silvertip Yacht Primer,
Spraying, brushing, or rolling S-1 Penetrating Sealer
Most of our products do not contain hazardous volatile materials, so wearing a vapor respirator is not necessary. However, when sanding any of our products when cured, it is highly recommended you wear a dust mask or respirator, as any airborne dust particles can be irritating.

Safe for fish?
Q: Can you build an aquarium out of System Three products?
A: Yes. You can build it out of wood and fiberglass using Silvertip™ or General Purpose™ Resin systems. And then you can bond the parts together with one of our adhesives like Gel Magic or T-88. But because our products have not been tested for aquatic leaching potential, you must then apply a finish to the completed unit that has been tested for its safety to fish.
How can I remove epoxy resin from clothing?
Usually wiping liberally with denatured or rubbing alcohol will remove most of it. Then laundering the item(s) in the washer will remove the rest.
Where can I find your Safety Data Sheets (SDS)?
Up-to-date SDS (Safety Data Sheet) documents are available on the individual product pages or by clicking here.
Remember, most products have two components, so will have two SDS.
