    What happened? I applied Flexcoat high build, for the first couple of days the epoxy was clear , but then became cloudy as it cured. What can be done to avoid this in the future?

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Hey Mark,
    Was your Flex coat old? Mix it 50/50? One rod I made the Flex coat never cured all the way, the wraps stayed stickey for a long time. I used an old packet, never again! How does it look now?

    the flex coat was a couple of years old. Never cleared, so I sanded it off.
