ARK COMPOSITES PUMP INSTRUCTIONS

ARK 2:1 PUMP RATIO INSTRUCTION SHEET

ASSEMBLY

Push the extension tube firmly into the bottom of the BLUE DOT pump, this is the ARK Resin Pump.  Hold the pump against the side of the resin container so the cap is level with the container cap, mark and cut the extension tube at an angle about 3/8” from the bottom. Insert pump in the container.

Repeat with the RED DOT Hardener pump. 

USING THE PUMPS

Depress pumps several times until you get a steady stream.  Discard this mixture.  Use only full pump strokes, an improper mix, either too much or too little, will result in an improper cure.  When dispensing more than 0.75 oz at a time repeat one resin, and one hardener instead of trying to keep track of the number of shots of resin and hardener. Mix thoroughly scraping the sides and the bottom of the container before using.

ONE stroke on each pump will produce 3/4oz-22ml mixed epoxy.

At low temperatures, viscosity increases and could cause pump breakage from having to press too hard or produce an incorrect ratio.  Keep the Epoxy at room temperature until you are going to use it.

STORAGE

Leave the pumps mounted on the containers for storage, cleaning with solvent could damage the pump seals resulting in an incorrect mix.  After long-term storage, do a sample batch or measure with graduated containers to check the ratio before using it on a project.

Store epoxy at room temperature, keep upright and off of concrete floors.  Do not freeze.
