This product works exactly as advertised. I've used other resins and this performs as expected. In various temps and humidity levels, I've found that using 7-10 mL of hardener per pint of resin givens me about 10 minutes of working time and hardens quickly and evenly. I would recommend erring on the side of using slightly larger batches as it's easier to get the mixture correct.

I'm using this for bedding stringers, bulkheads, deck and transom repair.

First time I have used, just filled tiny dings and scratches on an old gel coated Thistle. Both baches cured differently, and now have some patches that are still a little yacky. Is there something to treat with that will make it more sandable?

          I am a novice at resins, so getting the correct ounces was a challenge. Once we mastered the ounces the product worked really well and will be using it again in the future.

            This is my first time using the resin and it dried tacky; does this mean next time I should use more or less hardener?

                  Used product with fiberglass mat recommended by the local West Marine store. Followed instructions exactly. Temp was 70 air and part fiberglassing. Went on perfectly, scrapped the air bubbles wrinkles out as it said and left it to dry. It has been 24 hours and it's still tacky. Also, the hardner bottle was not filled to the 11cc make as the can says, it was unopened.
