Finishing epoxy question


Can you use finishing expoxy for normal epoxy?

I bought a bunch of it on accident.

Thanks

It will work but won't be quite as strong as say regular 30 minute epoxy. The thing I most dislike about finishing epoxy is that you need to get the mixture exactly right or it will take forever to cure.

I also noticed that they want it mixed at 75 degrees, which rules out my basement.

Yeah it's a pain in the butt to use, I pretty much use 30 minute epoxy for everything now, even fiberglassing.
