I was applying the base coat of epoxy to prepare for a decal and the finish immediately started fish eyeing, I immediately wiped off the epoxy. I purchased some System 20 fish eye eliminator and have lightly sanded the area now how much fish eye eliminator to add to Flex Coat High Build? TIA

Better bet would be to remove any silicone residue from the blank and/or your shop.

Put 2 coats of CP over your decals and you won't have that problem.

Tom Harder, do you have a suggestion on how much System 20 fish eye eliminator to use? I mix 2ml harder and 2 ml of resin Flex Coat High Build.

Albert,
I am surprised the bottle of System 20 did not offer suggested usage quantities. If it is anything like a similar product, “Smoothie”, a few drops per quart is all that is needed, in your case maybe just one drop. DO NOT FORGET, each and every coat of epoxy over a previous one containing the fish-eye additive will also require the additive!!!
