Topic tags/keywords: space heater tent booth epoxy

I am about to pour an epoxy large desktop, recommended temp for product is 75 degrees. My workshop is an open faced barn so I was thinking of getting a small enclosed 10×10 easy up or a portable car tent and put a heater in it to keep it warm. Anyone have any recommendations for me?

Average temp for me now is 50-low 60’s

That would work. I would place an ELECTRIC (not gas) space heater in the tent, along with the desk and epoxy resin. Allow the temperature to equalize at the temperature you want; this will take a few hours.

Thanks for the quick reply, I guess I didn’t make myself clear, sorry about that. I meant to ask what size electric heater (Watt/BTU) would work to raise the temperature 25-30 degrees and keep it at 75 for 24 hours. I just ordered sides for a 10×10 easy up so that is what I will be using.

Optimum conditions for epoxy is 70°-80° with no dust or insects.
