I’ve got two part epoxy. It’s Resin and Hardener. Normally, it goes in a 3:1 ratio and life is good. I’m out of Hardener. I bought some made for fiberglas epoxy, instead of made for carbon fiber epoxy.
Dribbled in a bunch of drops, as though I was adding to the fiberglas epoxy resin. Mixed it, applied it. That was 4 hours ago on a hot breezy pretty dry day. It’s as though I just applied it to the cloth. Feels 90% as oogey and wet as it did.
Here’s the question: Assuming I have limitless patience, will this stuff set up properly in a few days, or lacking hardener will it remain oogey forever?
Can I GET more hardener and brush it onto the resin and hope it will “set up” that way, or is that a really bad idea?
Should I slough off the carbon fiber cloth and just call it a minor loss, order more hardener and wait till I can mix properly?
Bottom line issue: Does Epoxy Resin dry and harden eventually without Hardener?
