The recommended minimum temperature for clear coating and laminating is 55-60°F. A chalky white appearance can happen when epoxy coatings have been allowed to cure in temperatures below the recommended minimum temp of 55-60°F. You may be able to turn the coating clear again by heating the area up with a space heater or heat gun, but more than likely you will have to sand off the chalky epoxy and recoat if you want the coating to be clear. For best results, all materials and working conditions should be maintained at a constant 70°F-80°F. Epoxy is a temperature sensitive material. When cool, it’s thicker and sets slower. When warm, it’s thinner and sets faster. When working in conditions or with material below 70°F, epoxy may become to viscous to properly release air and self level. Working in conditions or with material above 80°F, it may set too quickly and exotherm, become too hot, which could cause it to yellow, distort or crack.
