Epoxy Curing Process – Can I make the resin dry faster?

While it is not recommended to add extra heat on epoxy and denature the product, heat is known to make the epoxy cure faster. Once the exothermic reactions is decreasing and the resin’s temperature is lowering down extra heat will help the epoxy close its links faster.

Once the epoxy is no longer liquid, it is possible to increase the room temperature above the recommended pouring and curing temperature of 22-24C (72-74F) to speed up the curing process.

For example, when using the CHILL ICE 2 a slow setting epoxy with a full cure time of 5-7 days depending on the mass, increasing the room temperature passed the 4rd day of curing will speed up the curing process.
