Started to encapsulate the interior of my malahini a few days ago. I first started with putting my Poxy-Shield epoxy containers in Ziplock bags and then submerging them in some hot water in the sink for over an hour or so as I vacuumed all the dust and stuff out of the boat.
When I went ahead and mixed up the first couple 18oz batches they kicked on me within 5-10 minutes, and I ended up loosing some epoxy due to it becoming unusable... (That was my bad... I should have realized epoxy that warm would have done that pretty quick...)
Anyhow, I managed to spread most of it, but did not get into the nooks and crannies. Well, the next day I mixed up some more, this time it was colder and it was almost like spreading jelly, but it didn't kick on me for a good long while and I was able to spread the whole batch.
When I spread the new stuff around and it hits the day old stuff (which will happen when trying to coat the nooks and crannies) I get this whitish / creamyish blend. Perhaps because the 2 are blending? Anyhow, I checked it this morning and it was still whitish in these areas, but the garage is cold as well.
I'm normally heat the garage with propane heat, so I'm not apt to leave the heater on all the time. But I will run it all day while I'm at home this weekend, and I'm thinking about getting some electric heaters so I can run them 24/7 hopefully.
Anyhow, long post for a short question, but does this sound reasonable? Will the whitish look go clear when it hardens? I still have some areas that need to be encapsulated, but I think I'm done until the stuff that's on there hardens.
