Why use a torch with epoxy resin?

  • Why Use A Torch To Get Rid Of Bubbles On Epoxy Resin
  • Torches, such as our butane-filled ArtResin Artist's Torch or ArtResin's™ Artist's Propane Torch Head ) work extremely well to eliminate bubbles because they produce a flame which can easily be controlled and directed at an area of bubbles. When the resin is heated, it thins out which enables it to de-gas more easily. Heat guns can also work, however it's harder to direct the heat where you want it and it tends to blow the wet resin around. An added benefit of the flame is that it will burn off tiny dust particles that may have landed in the resin. Of course, common sense and caution should be used when operating any torch or heat gun.
