Directions: TotalBoat Tropical Hardener can be dispensed by pouring or using the included pump. This pump is calibrated to work with the TotalBoat Traditional Epoxy System.
IMPORTANT: When using the pumps, ONE PUMP of TotalBoat Epoxy Resin is calibrated to mix with ONE PUMP of TotalBoat Tropical Hardener. Prime this pump by pumping until a steady flow of hardener comes out. DO NOT USE THIS PUMP WITH ANY OTHER HARDENERS.
Surface Preparation: All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of any surface contamination. Light sanding is recommended, followed by an oil-free solvent wipe, or a lint-free rag dampened with isopropyl alcohol or plain water to remove dust.
MEASURING: NOTE: THE MIX RATIO IS DIFFERENT THAN TRADITIONAL TOTALBOAT FAST AND SLOW HARDENERS. There are three ways to measure: (1) Use the calibrated pumps and the measuring is done automatically, (2) BY VOLUME: Measure THREE parts TotalBoat Epoxy RESIN to ONE part TotalBoat Tropical Hardener, or (3) BY WEIGHT: Measure 100A:28B.
MIXING: Mix for 1-2 minutes, then add any desired fillers, if needed. The catalyzing of TotalBoat Epoxy is an exothermic (heat-producing) reaction. The peak exotherm will vary according to ambient temperature and choice of hardener.
Eye/Skin Protection: Wear protective eye wear, suitable gloves, and protective clothing.
NOTE: This container will not come filled to the top. It contains the calibrated amount of product to work in conjunction with the same size resin container.
