Blushing or White Bloom is simply white patches through moisture absorption in Polyester Fibreglass Resin work sessions.
You can prevent Blushing or White Blooming by:
- Keep your working area warm – If you use a naked flame to heat your area remember to turn it off before applying your resin. The naked flames can produce moisture in the air, and thus contaminate the resin.
- Make sure you are working in a dry place – Keeping your working area dry and free from moisture is key. The moisture will get into the resin and contaminate it leaving your resin to not set.
