Can you use epoxy outdoors?

The use of epoxy resin outdoors can be useful. However, discoloration can occur with sunlight. Discoloring can occur by sunlight when located indoors too. 

Generally, Epoxy resin is not UV protected and it is also sensitive to temperature. 

When the epoxy resin is exposed to extreme temperatures, cracking can occur. 

We do have specially formulated products with UV protectors mixed inside to help with discoloring from sunlight. 

Please take precautions with your projects. If you anticipate lots of sunlight, we recommend our Clear Cast 7050 which includes UV additives to help protect against sunlight discoloring.
