Additive F Wax Precipitations

I keep getting small clumps of wax as I mix up hotcoats. Anyone else experience this? And more importantly how do i keep it from doing this?

My procedure. Glass at night after kids are asleep. Warm resin 10-12 seconds. Add hardener and Additive F. Mix gently. Get wax clumps.


Do you do any research?

Do you read the archives?

this question has been asked a number of times before.

when the Add.F gets too cold, solids fall out of solution. just give your entire can of Add.F a good shake, a hot water bath, and another good shake prior to use, and those solids will dissolve back into solution.

funky, funky, fresh…

Yes, I’ve had the same problem several times.

I keep forgetting to shake up the Additive F before adding it to my resin. No big deal so far… the globs seem to blend well with all the dust and dirt :slight_smile:

My poly brain says never shake up resin or you will have problems…My Epoxy brain thinks different…

Yes, always do research. Always search archives. Always read your posts. Guess i tried putting too much information in the search rather than just additive f. I have since gone back and reread them.

Will try shaking and prewarming additive f first. I was just curious since i am taking additive f without any visisble precipitates, adding it to a pre-warmed mixture and it falls out of solution. I am sure that i have had it more than 70 deg sometimes and had the same things happen.
