Selecting the right product

What's the difference between the products with the red and blue lids?

There are more than 100 different types of Megapoxy designed for various specialist applications. All of types have two parts, and almost all are packaged with a red lid and a blue lid to distinguish these two parts. We can offer advice as to the best type of Megapoxy for your application if you are unsure which type to use.

How do I select the right product for the job I'm doing?

Our Products page is categorised by industry type to help you narrow down the suitable products for the job you’re doing.

How do I calculate how much I need to purchase for the job I'm doing?

Calculating the volume of Megapoxy required is done on a project by project basis. Every job is different and requires different volumed of product. Please contact us for more information on required volumes for your application.

Where can I buy Megapoxy products?

You can buy Megapoxy products from all over the world.

Our offices are in Sydney and Victoria, however, we have distributors in various states and countries. Visit our Distributors

All products come with instructions on how to use them.
Alternatively, you can visit our Data Sheets page to find the Technical Bulletins and Safety Data Sheets for each product.

You can also visit our Tutorials page to watch videos of the products being used.

What is the working time for my Megapoxy product?

The working time for our products is stated on the label of both the Part A and Part B of your product. If you require more information of the mixing procedure and application please refer to the technical bulletin for this product which is located on the products page.

How long will it take for my Megapoxy product to fully cure?

There are many different Megapoxy products and many of these have differing full cure times. For specific details on cure times of your Megapoxy product please refer to the Technical Bulletin for your product which is found on out products page here.

Why has my epoxy not cured in accordance with the time specified on the package e.g. 24 hours?

There are several influences on the cure time;

– Temperature

– The ambient temperature, temperature of the product and temperature of the substrate all influence the cure time. At low temperatures the cure time increases significantly (conversely, if the weather is hot, the time it takes to cure will reduce).

– Surface area

– The greater the surface area relative to the volume of the epoxy, the longer the cure time (for example, a thin film cures more slowly than the same volume contained in a mixing bucket

– Addition of fillers

– If you have added a filler, such as epoxy aggregate, this increases the cure time

– Not using the correct ratio of the two parts of epoxy – if the error is too large, the epoxy will not cure

– Not mixing the two parts thoroughly – if the parts are not incorporated into each other thoroughly, the required chemical reaction cannot occur and the epoxy will not cure

Some epoxy has cured and now I want to remove it, what should I do?

Cured epoxy on a compatible/prepared substrate is very difficult to remove and adequate regard must be given to the risks associated with any method of removal. You may be able to mechanically remove epoxy with a concrete grinder with the appropriate wheel cup. Some types of strong solvents and paint strippers will soften epoxy to an extent that it can be scraped off (or partially scraped off). High temperatures can also soften some epoxies.

I have got bubbles in my epoxy, what should I do?

The two parts must be mixed thoroughly, but not agitated in such a manner that entrains air bubbles. There are specific epoxy mixing drill attachments which are designed to avoid entraining air. Shaking the parts in a container, for example, will result in air bubbles.
If you leave liquid epoxy to sit in the mixing receptacle for a period of time, often the bubbles will come to the surface. You can also tap the base of the container on a solid surface to encourage this process. You can also use a blue flame to remove bubbles provided adequate care is taken given the risks of this equipment and the heat resistance of the mixing receptacle.

My epoxy is building up excessive heat, what should I d

Epoxies, particularly unfilled epoxies, can generate discernible heat during the curing process, known as exotherm. Care must be taken to avoid excessive exotherm because it can be dangerous and will give inadequate cured results, such as bubbling, cracking, thermal shrinkage.
To reduce exotherm, there are several strategies that can be used;

– Quantity: if you reduce the quantity of epoxy mixed at any one time, the exotherm is reduced. Once the heat has dissipated from the initial pour of epoxy, you can mix and pour the next batch, and so on

– Surface area: if you increase the surface area for any given volume of epoxy, the exotherm is reduced

– Keep the epoxy cool as possible before mixing

– Use epoxy in the time period when the temperature is lowest

– Use fillers such as epoxy aggregate to reduce exotherm
