The lightweight, easy to handle heat gun is a great tool for this task. This torch has a flameless heat temperature of 1300°F, giving you a great controlled heat to pop bubbles. When you use the heat gun, it is important to ensure it is held about 2-3 inches away from the surface. Move it in a circular motion over the epoxy/resin to ensure even heating. This will help the bubbles rise to the surface, and either pop them or make it easier to access with a needle or toothpick. If there are any bubbles remaining after using the torch, repeat the process until all epoxy/resin bubbles are gone. While using heat can help with bubbles and curing, it is best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the drying process.
Overall, our Micro-Therm Heat Gun is an effective tool in removing epoxy/resin bubbles. Through these tips, you can create a smooth and professional-looking finish for your next project with minimal frustrations.
