Seachem Flourish Epoxy 114g Brown
Seachem Flourish Epoxy™ is two-part epoxy putty that can be used during hardscaping to secure materials such as rock and driftwood for more stable foundations in planted aquaria. It has a working time of 5 minutes and fully cures submerged or emerged within 24 hours. Flourish Epoxy™ is ideal for working with stacks of rocks, where collapse could cause damage to plants or the aquarium itself. It is completely safe for aquarium inhabitants.
For sensitive skin, wear latex gloves. Cut off desired amount of Flourish Epoxy™. Replace unused Flourish Epoxy™ into plastic storage tube. Remove film and knead Flourish Epoxy™ together until uniform color is achieved. Once mixed, Flourish Epoxy™ can be used to adhere driftwood or rock, either submerged or emerged. Press firmly around base or contact point of drfitwood or rock to insure Flourish Epoxy™ penetrates pores and surface grooves. Curing begins in about 5 minutes, hardening in about 15 minutes. Flourish Epoxy™ cures fully in 24 hours.
How should I store the Flourish Epoxy™ I do not use?
A: When not in use, Flourish Epoxy™ should be stored in the plastic tube it comes packaged in.
Is there a difference between the brown and gray other than color?
A: No, both brown and gray function in the same manner. Simply pick whichever you prefer for your project
Directions state that Flourish Epoxy™ hardens within 15 minutes and fully cures within 24 hours. What’s the difference between hardening and curing?
A: After 5 minutes, the hardening process has begun and you have, at most, 10 minutes more of working time. The 15 minute hardening means that, at that point, the piece is set; the material is no longer malleable, and you will no longer be able to work with it (it may be possible to pull pieces apart, but you will not be able to reposition them). While you can no longer work with it, chemical processes are still occurring as it continues to harden further. Curing means that after 24 hours, all chemical processes are complete and the material is essentially rock hard.
