Since it doesn't seem to be curing I think I need to take off the epoxy. What solvent will do this?
thanks for your comments....
Hi Ibrannnan ,
The solvent of choice for uncured epoxy is good ol fashioned rubbing alcohol . If it's been 3 days and still uncured , this should clean it off easily . In fact , when we fuelproof RC plane firewalls with epoxy , we use alcohol to thin it with , the alcohol evaporates and the epoxy cures just fine and we get a super thin layer that keeps the fuel from softening the wood .
PS , the alcohol usually comes in , what , 70% or 90% solution when bought at the local pharmacy ? , make sure to the the 90% stuff . Hope this helps ....
