QUestion about epoxy. What is "kicking"?

"kicking" the time when the chemical reaction completes and the resign hardens. Don''t touch it will be HOT..You will actually see the reation there will be no guess work to tell when the hardner has "kicked". I have done some major patch work closing over a hole in my bottom where a sail drive tail once projected. You won''t have any troblem knowing when you can add more glass and resign.
