Dry Times & Overcoating Intervals
Is this gel coat compatible with epoxy resins. can it be applied as a shiny finish coat over carbon fiber parts made with epoxy resin.
Gel Coat can be applied over epoxy, the trick is to prepare the epoxy correctly. Wash the epoxy with water and a scotchbrite pad scrub to remove any amine blush. Sand, and clean well with acetone. Let dry then you can apply the gel coat.

Got the wrong stuff!
The gel coat was fine. Great stuff. Exactly what I needed. It didn't, however, show up on the first try. I got some gray paint that was supposed to go to a poor guy in Kentucky. Maybe he got my gel coat, I don't know. What I do know, though, is that when I called JD and informed them of my sadness, they told me to keep the paint and fired off another quart of gel coat post haste. It's here now and I'm eager to use it.
Directions not good
The product was supposed to be a quart I only got 24oz not 32oz not happy abou that. Other products I have purchased in the past (HI bond) would tell you add .5 oz of hardner based on ideal temperatures. They took the math out of it. When you are using 16oz at a time it can make complicated. I like hi bond much better in this department. If hi bond came in different colors I would have bought it.
