Helpful Materials for Cleaning Epoxy Resin
Recommended Solvents for Cleaning
At Super Epoxy Resin Systems, we offer the best cleaning solution available for your epoxy resin projects: SuperClean Epoxy Cleaner. This multi-purpose solvent is not only perfect for removing excess epoxy from tools and surfaces but also for prepping your surfaces for the next epoxy pour. With a base of Isopropyl Alcohol and added proprietary ingredients, SuperClean Epoxy Cleaner is the best product to use on your cured or un-cured epoxy.
Second only to our uniquely formulated SuperClean Epoxy Cleaner is Isopropyl Alcohol 90% (or higher). Unlike other alcohol-based solvents, Isopropyl Alcohol is pure alcohol with a 100% concentration. It is generally considered safer than some other types of alcohol, making it the go-to cleaning solution for DIYers. For the most effective clean possible, we recommend using an Isopropyl Alcohol concentration of 90% or higher; lower concentrations may not flash off quickly enough, which could dilute your epoxy resin and cause it to cure soft or tacky.
