EPOXY HIGH-BUILD RED OXIDE is a Two-Pack system (Base and Converter), which must be mixed thoroughly in the ratio of 3 part Base to 1 part converter and allowed to induct for one hour before being applied. Failure to allow sufficient induction will defeat expected results. Mix only the amount needed for the job. Unused mixture cannot be stored as it will cure. Always stir base and converter before blending. Pot Life after mixing is approximately 2-3 hours.


Does paint expire or have a specific shelf life?

Answer: When stored properly, an unopened can of latex or oil-based paint should have a shelf life of 1 year. The best storage for paint is in a cool, dry area, away from extreme hot and cold temperatures. Paint should never be allowed to freeze and should be stored away from furnaces and other heat-generating appliances
