Whilst it may be possible to do small areas (after a couple of practice runs – but where do you do the practice runs?) but in our experience the sensitive and temperamental qualities of the resin and the weather do not always go well together.
Specialist equipment is required to ensure good even and quality mixing. Correct proportioning of the two parts is required. Knowledge of the required consistency is key as the temperature can have a dramatic effect on the end product. Correct preparation of the sub base is also key.
