MSDS:

Surface Agent

A wax-containing clear liquid formulation designed for use with either gel coats or resins to reduce air sensitivity and inhibition. The function of Surfacing Agent is to migrate or bloom to the exposed surface of the laminate or casting, it creates a thin film preventing air contact with the resin and allowing cure to take place. When subsequent plies are to be applied, this wax film naturally must be removed by sanding to facilitate interply adhesion. Since various resins and gel coats may react differently, the exact ratio that works best for a particular process is up to the user to determine. Ambient temperature and catalyst ratio may affect outcome. When brushing or rolling material, care should be exercised not to remove film by overlapping strokes excessively since it is necessary for the Surface Agent to form a film. For use as in a final coat to eliminate surface tackiness 1 to 2% by weight is the normal level, although less may be sufficient with some resins.

Store in a cool place in original container not over 75° F.
