Most rc airplane pilots develop a special bond when it comes to using Epoxy resins for building and repairs. And if you know Epoxy, you know it usually requires a mixing dish in order to equally measure the resin and the hardener.

But what if the amount of Epoxy you need is small? Tired of using up your expensive plastic mixing cups or searching for a small surface to mix on?

Try using an old paperback book for on-the-spot mixing of Epoxy in small amounts. Dab your equal amounts on the paper, mix it up with a Popsicle stick, and when you’re done simply rip off the page and throw it away. No mess, no fuss, and the book stores away no problems.

Remember: Always keep cotton pads and rubbing alcohol on hand for quick and easy clean up of Epoxy spills or drips.

    Never use paper to mix epoxy.
    paper absorbs some components of the epoxy and results in unknown and unpredictable results.
    For trivial things such as RC planes etc this wouldn’t matter.
    For important jobs, use plastic,metal or other non-absorbent material
