I have used Envirotex Lite Pour On Epoxy with no problems on a hichory bar top. Now I have applied it to an oak bar top and can not get the bubbles to stop. I degassed the product, and it looked so bad I had to sand it down and apply a second coat. And that coat also bubbled....a day after I applied this on a customers bar top. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem?????? Thankx!

We use a small propane torch to remove the bubbles, but didn't have very many of them. I hold the flame at least 2" above the surface, either over a specific bubble, or if there are several, I move the flame in a line over the bubbles. It is not the heat, but the carbon dioxide from the torch that eliminates the bubbles.

I am having a different problem with the material not setting up properly. I know the instructions say most issues with this are due to improper mixing, but we followed the instructions exactly and 5 hours later, it still isn't drying or setting up. This is June in Indiana and the temperature today is in the 60's, so weather shouldn't be the issue.

One thing we noticed is that the mixture did not heat up at all. The last time we used Envirotex Lite, it heated up and set up within a few hours. We did everything exactly the same way this time - even the projects were similar - both coating countertops. Is it possible we just got a bad batch? We used two 32 ounce boxes for both projects.

Any suggestions for this issue? I REALLY DON'T WANT TO SCRAPE THIS ALL OFF AND START OVER AGAIN!!!
