Designed "By Rod Builders For Rod Builders" by the talented staff at Mud Hole Custom Tackle.

Don't believe us? We gave away samples at the ICRBE, below is one review:
"Guys, I used the Bubble Buster for the first time last night on a test batch of epoxy that i whipped into a foaming froth, I spayed once and did not believe what happened! The bubbles disappeared. Not believing my eyes, I did it again, and again - clear epoxy each time! Gaining some faith in it, I used in on an MHX blank I was building, the epoxy bubbles popped right out and the epoxy hardened shinny and clear. The stuff is amazing! You've got a real winner! You guys are the BEST, keep up the great work, thanks for the sample" - Greg

Does it leave a residue so you can't apply another coat ?

I have a couple of questions.

I noticed that right after you spayed it, the rate at which the epoxy was spreading/leveling out noticeable increased.
Does that mean this stuff is affecting the viscosity of the epoxy by thinning it, and if so have you studied how this will affect the long term integrity of the cured epoxy?

I also noticed some residue left behind by the dried product. What effect does this have on a second coat of epoxy?

Thanks Guys;

Steve - yes, it releases the surface tension, in doing that it allows the epoxy to flow (spread out) better/easier. In rod building, that helps in the leveling of epoxy without the need for heat.

Regarding a second coat of epoxy - yes you can add a second coat of epoxy after the first coat of epoxy sets.

Regarding residue - no the actual product does not leave any residue, however we always recommend whipping off any area before applying a second coat of epoxy.

Regarding Application - the video is only to demonstrate how well the Bubble Buster works - in real life, rod builders would apply 2 part epoxy to a rod as the normally would, than spray the Bubble Buster on the epoxy on the rod for the bubbles to release.

Regards.
