This year I've added a heat lamp to last year's collection of work lights and draped black plastic over the work area (instead of a hard-frame structure). Here, the warming light and plastic are in place keeping today's epoxy warm and the heat lamp is clamped in place to pre-warm the next section of the hull.
The sequence that is working for me is:
- Warm the resin and hardener in a warming box (using a 75W bulb)
- Pre-warm the section of the hull (between two frames) to be worked with the heat lamp and cover with black plastic
- Apply the epoxy;
- Keep the section warm with a 40W warming light and black plastic.
Oh, yes… Happy New Year to one and all!
