Boy I messed this up! I was putting on the epoxy, using a MAS 2:1 epoxy. After I was finished and I was marveling at the job, I noticed that there were a few spots that were missed. I had very little epoxy left so when I poured it out there was not enough to align with a mark on the graduated plastic cups I was using, so I eyeballed the ratio. Bottom line, the ratio was bad and now wherever I put this last bit of expoxy is soft 4 days later. Areas where I did not hit with this mis-ratio’d batch is OK.
The question is, how do I take off the bad epoxy? I tried denatured alcohol and mineral spirits but the epoxy just grabs onto the applicator. I am able to mechanically remove it using a razor blade so maybe something like that might work, it’s just after covering the missed spots I did some additional spreading so about 40% of the boat is at issue and a mechanical removal would be tedious. Mechanical removal revealed solid epoxy underneath.
is there a chemical I could use that would remove the bad and keep the good?
thanks for any help that can be provided.
