The measurement markings on the quart dissolved in the epoxy

By Wade

Comments about Jamestown Distributors Plastic Paint Pails:

When my gloved hands got some curing epoxy on the exterior of these quart pails, the measurement markings dissolved! Subsequently I could not get further use from the these pails and had to discard them (this has never happened to me, and I typically expect to get several uses from cleaned epoxy mixing pails). However, the 8-oz cups did not behave similarly.

Good for one-time use only

Pros

  • Easy To Clean

Cons

  • Deteriorates
  • Graduated markings wash off in solvent

Best Uses

    Comments about Jamestown Distributors Plastic Paint Pails:

    I use these pots to mix epoxy. In the past I have been able to re-use them several times. The latest batch, though, I can only use once. When I clean up with acetone, the graduated markings on the container wash right off. The older versions did not have this problem. I'm very disappointed in the quality reduction.

    Easy Measuring

    • Convenient

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Mixing Paint Or Gel Coat

      Comments about Jamestown Distributors Plastic Paint Pails:

      I have always shied away from using mixing containers rather than re-purposing deli containers or milk jugs (which is what I use for epoxy since the pumps do the measuring). However, when I had to mix a three component paint at 4:1:1 I really appreciated having the ratio increments provided on these paint pails. There are increments for 1:1 through 6:1 with additional increments for a third component. e.g. 4:2:1 etc Sometimes worth the cost and environmental impact of non re-usable container.

        These are great little containers that make it easy to paint or glue, and have convenient measures. Also great for small part storage or to hold screws etc at job sites.

            great mix cups for small batchs of epoxy- measure graduations on cup are accurate and show different ratios- outstanding. I have bought cups like this from many others, but none have the feature and durability of these

              I'm working on a boat restoration so having a graduated mixing container for the two part expoxy made this easy.
