What is this?

Post by Aussie » Sat Apr 20, 2019 5:30 am

I put on two coats of epoxy today one coat at 10:30am the other starting at 07:30

As I was getting to the end of the last coat i noticed this in the top of the coat, is this blush??

When in the shed it rained very heavy so there was a bit of moisture in the air

It does look like you trapped some moisture in that coat. Wet sanding the area will tell you how deep you need to sand to remove the blemish

If it feels waxy it may be blush. First, a warm soapy water wash. If that doesn't clear it, go to Billy's answer.

Thanks gents,

Have had a look this morning and I think it is only on the very surface as there are areas that you can see through and looks clear beneath.

That will be my final coat and will now be sanding anyway getting ready for the poly clear coats which will be sprayed.
