Flexcoat rod builders epoxy

I ordered the above epoxy and the labels were red and black. I thought that flexcoat may have changed labeling and cap colors. I usually use the black and yellow labeled epoxy. To my surprise red and black was much thicker in viscosity than black and yellow and a shorter work time. Is there a way to lengthen the work time or increase the viscosity? Also, is putting an equal but small amount of the red/black epoxy accurate enough to cure properly aka quarter sized amount of each or do I need to use my syringes. I tried to a warm bath of water and the epoxy thickened as before.

You do know the red/black capped epoxy is glue, and the yellow capped epoxy is finish?

They are different for different applications. One for gluing or adhesion, the other for coating wraps.

The Rod Builders Epoxy Glue (in the red and black label) is an adhesive epoxy for gluing cork, reel seats, EVA, etc... Here is a video on how to measure and mix our epoxy glues:

Our epoxy finishes for thread wraps, lures, and such are labeled in the black and yellow. Here is a video on how to measure and mix our finishes:

We have new labels, but we have stayed true to the colors that we have always used.
