Two-part liquid epoxy resins are reactive chemicals and are moderately hazardous before they are mixed and cured. Here are some recommendations on how to safely handle, use, and dispose of System Three® epoxy and polyurethane products.
System Three products and aquariums
Q: Can you make 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.
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.
Are your products REACH Certified?
Yes. If you need documentation, please contact Technical Support, email@example.com, and reference the specific product.
Are your products compliant for RoHS?
Yes. If you require documentation, please contact Technical Support, firstname.lastname@example.org, and reference the specific product.
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.
