When applying an Epoxy Coating to any porous surface such as wood, we recommend sealing the entire surface with a very thin layer of Stealth Epoxy Coating. Sealing the surface ensures there is less chance of any trapped air bubbles.
When applying this first layer, we recommend using a Bondo spreader as this maintains the minimum amount of epoxy used on the seal coat.
Too much epoxy used in this step can lead to trapped air bubbles and cloudiness. Once the seal coat is applied, use a propane torch or a heat gun in a smooth, sweeping pattern to remove any remaining air. We recommend waiting 6hrs before applying your next coat.
