When the weather turns cooler and the temperature drops below 20 degrees C, resin takes longer to cure. The colder it gets, the longer the material takes to set. The best way to help with this issue is to add an accelerator or a catalyst into the mixture. A catalyst will gently speed the curing time a little. This is needed to prevent dew and other moisture from getting into the resin bound mix before it sets.
Order a trusted catalyst to add to your resin bound mix. A catalyst is introduced to increase the chemical reaction rate when mixing the resin. It aids the curing process providing a uniform result. Adding a catalyst to the mix should be done in a controlled manner.
Too much catalyst in the mix will make the mixture too difficult to move around and trowel. It could even get stuck in the container. The amount of catalyst needed will depend on the air temperature.
How to use a catalyst in resin bound applications. Only a small amount of catalyst is needed – a 200ml supply should be sufficient for several projects. The catalyst is added to Part A of the resin components and whisked into the liquid for 15 to 20 seconds.
