Treadmaster blisters

I put down some treadmaster, 8 pieces each about 1 foot by 3 feet. I did this about 3 months ago, then left. Now that I am back a couple of the pieces have a blister or two. Apparently I was stingy with the epoxy.

Any suggestions on how to repair short of rip up and start over?

Re: Treadmaster blisters

Mask entire top off, inject with epoxy, then vacuum bag. Make sure everything inside the bag is well masked for squeezeout. Use thinned epoxy and a needle for injection. Done right it should only leave the needle hole full of epoxy. If you can't bag it, use something flat with weight on it.
