Idon;t know anything about that stuff you have and what it might look like or how thick it is, so it might be OK, but I doubt it will be very good.
I would sand both surfaces with maybe a 200 grit or so paper, to give the resin something to mechanically bond to.
And everything else ...
Hope that helps!
Yeah it was difficult to even get it to where i got it, I was using a small popsickle stick to apply the epoxy inside the crevices. Maybe if I had more of a liquidy epoxy that didn't set up in 5 minutes I could have spent more time getting it better in the crevices. But I can't see how anyone could get it 100% perfect with no air pockets.FLandOBX wrote: ↑Sun Nov 12, 2017 2:40 amHey, Lxt. If it's any consolation, I had exactly the same problem with one of my boards, followed the same procedure as you did (but also added a weight to the top of the board while the epoxy dried), and ended up with an identical result. I'm not sure why the ripples appeared in the laminate. In the end, it's better having the laminate secured than not. But getting the ripples out is tricky.
If you had used 30 or 60-min epoxy ; the job woulda looked about 1/2 better.
