    I purchased a resin kit about 9 months ago and been terrified to try it. I did not even open the box yet, but yet in love with the results.

    Have used resin on surf boards and to inject into shrinkage cracks in concrete, but not used on timber. Would like to learn this.

    I have over 10 epoxy resin tables.etc. I produced a dining room table that warped. I didn’t seal both sides. The drying of the unsealed side produced the problem. Don’t make that mistake.

    Years ago I worked for toy company and did a lot of resin casting of prototypes. Now I would like to use that knowledge with my woodworking hobby so I will see if these video will fill in some gaps in my mixing skills. (More later.)

    I live in a cold wintery part of Canada where I cannot do this outside or in my garage so that I have lots of ventilation. Are the fumes from mixing and working with the resin and hardener toxic to breathe? I don’t want to subject the rest of my household to these fumes either. Is there a way to build a fume hood to exhaust these fumes outside of my basement workshop?

      Hello Martin,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      The epoxies I’ve used don’t have a strong smell, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t giving off chemicals. Here’s what MAS Epoxy https://masepoxies.com/ says about their products

      VOC

      MAS Table Top Pro is considered a 100% solids epoxy coating. While much of the industry will tell you their products contains zero VOC, we’ve actually tested our product and obtained a result of 1.5 g/L VOC, which is extremely low. For reference, a low VOC house paint may contain up to 50 g/L VOC and other VOC-exempt solvents.

      Sensitization

      Unfortunately, it’s possible to develop an allergic sensitization to any epoxy resin system. It is quite like the allergic reaction to poison ivy. The severity of the reaction varies depending on the individual and the amount of exposure. Some people become sensitized to the epoxy resin and others to the hardener. Take measures such as wearing nitrile gloves, Tyvek arm guards and an apron to prevent skin contact with the epoxy. If you do get some on your skin wash it off immediately with soap and water. It’s less common, but in addition to developing a rash from skin contact, severely sensitized individuals can also have an allergic reaction to vapors from the epoxy resin and hardener. Symptoms may include tightening of the throat and difficulty breathing. We recommend working in well ventilated areas for precisely that reason. If you must work with the epoxy resin in a confined space, wear a NIOSH approved respirator with an organic vapor cartridge.

      Yes, you could build a hood to vent the fumes, similar to the vent hood over a stove. Maybe you can get some ideas from this video https://www.wwgoa.com/video/diy-exhaust-fan-016078/

      If you have any other concerns, please contact us at 1-855-253-0822, or chat with us on our site.
