I use two methods to deal with the pop-ups after wetting out. 1- wait until the epoxy kicks and gets flypaper sticky and push the pop-up down into the sticky. If it pops again wait some more and push again. 2- right after wet out cover the tape/cloth with Saran Wrap and press or roller all air bubbles out to the edge. The tape will not pop if air cannot get in under the plastic wrap. You will have epoxy ridges where the Saran Wrap wrinkles but no pop-ups.
