  • Mirrorcoat Heat Resistance/Temperature Tolerance

    The rule of thumb with cured Mirrorcoat® and how much heat it will tolerate is this:  If an object is not too hot to hold in your hand, you can set it directly on a Mirrorcoat surface which is completely (more than a week) cured.  If it is hotter, you must place a coaster or hot pad underneath the object.

    If you happen to put an object that is too hot on a Mirrorcoat surface, and it leaves a ring, the ring can many times be removed by passing a hairdryer back and forth over the affected area.

  • How is Mirrorcoat applied?

  • Mirrorcoat epoxy has cured with some sticky spots. How do I fix it?

    The sticky spots are most typically uncured resin or hardener which hasn't been completely mixed in.  If it's excess resin it can be removed with a strong solvent like lacquer thinner.  If it's excess hardener it can be removed with soap and water.  The voids can be filled with small quantities of newly-mixed Mirrorcoat, carefully using a spatula or squeegee to smooth out any excess material.  Let this cure 24-hours and lightly sand the surface with medium-coarse sandpaper.  Finally, apply an additional flood coat at 4 fluid ounces per square foot.
