-MEKP catalyst is needed for polyester resin to cure. It should be added between 1-2% based on the volume of the resin. More or less than this will cause an improper cure. Cure time and pot life will vary depending on percentage of MEKP added and the temperature of the room. If 1% MEKP is added, there will be a longer pot life and it will cure slower than if 1.5% or 2% MEKP is added. Same goes for temperature. Lower temperatures result in a slower pot life/cure time than if working in higher temperatures. Fiberglass Warehouse Fiberglass Resin is promoted to gel in 17-23 minutes at 77°F when catalyzed at 1 percent (approx. 1 tsp per pint).
-Apply to fiberglass or surface using a fiberglass roller, brush, spreader or squeegee
-Uncured polyester resin can be removed from tools and equipment with acetone.
