Ripples in the Flood Coat
Surface Cures Uneven with Ripples or Waves:
1) The wooden surface had too much warping or imperfections and one coat of epoxy was not enough to cover the imperfections.
2) Applying too thin a flood coat. This product needs to be applied in full 1/8” flood coats in order to properly self-level.
3) Applying too much heat during your bubble removal techniques will cause a ripple effect. The heat or torch should be swept across the surface rapidly without holding it in one place.
Solution: Sand the imperfections out of the surface smoothing it out and finishing with 200-300 grit sandpaper. Wipe dust with a clean rag and acetone, wait 20 mins to dry then you can repour a new flood coat.
