Do you mean bubbles as you're molding a part or bubbles appearing in something after being exposed to the sun?

give it the float test Click the image to open in full size.

saving it depends on whether or not it's cosmetic, as a fix probably won't be pretty. But then again, if it's bubbling, you have a problem with the UV coat/resin degradation and the rest of it will look like **** too - which brings us back to the float test

There probably isn't anything you can do.
