The Resin component of your kit may turn milky or form crystals.
This occurs much like honey crystallizes. The occurrence of milkiness or crystals in no way affects the quality of the resin. Just like honey, when warmed up will return to a clear liquid, so will the resin.
Put the container of resin in a warm water bath. In warmer climates leaving the resin container in the sun may be sufficient.
Smaller containers of resin can also be warmed in a microwave for 2-3 minutes.
If it is just slightly milky in colour warming to 20-25ºC (68-77ºF) will clear the resin.
If larger crystals have formed then warming in a water bath to 45-50ºC (115-125ºF) will restore the clarity.
You may need to change the water a few times and it may take 30 to 40 minutes. Do not exceed 70ºC (160ºF).
At higher temperatures the plastic container can soften.
Warming the resin is a rather slow process and can take a while depending on the volume of resin and how much of the resin has crystallized.
Once the resin is clear, let the resin cool down to room temperature before mixing with the hardener.
