Jeff,

Is this listed anywhere? I was thinking this resin would help with Peel Ply, more time to lay out.

Never trust advice from someone who does not have a few bags of wood flour around the shop!

There are times that a belt sander with 32 grit can be like an artist brush.

Cpt UB, here are the Cure Times: Tropical Slow: Potlife 45-60 minutes, cured sandable in 24 hours / Special Clear: Potlife 20-25 minutes, cured sandable in 20- 24 hours (Standard tests at 3 ounce mix at 77 degrees). I will post on a new Cure Sheet on Wednesday and then put it on the website!! One more thing about the Tropical Slow, it is a darker hardener, not clear like our slow, medium and Fast!! Jeff

what's the blush like with this hardener I used it for the first time today instead of the normal slow and it feels greasy to the touch 12 hours after layup?

CatfishHunter,

I just spoke with our manufacturer and found out that it will blush. I apologize because I know this is not conveyed on our website. I will make a note on the site. In the meantime, simply wash with some soap and water before you re-coat or move on to primer.
