resi-BLAST is an innovative, single part liquid additive that is dropped into wet and coloured ( pigmented ) resin. The additive is commonly referred to as a dispersant, interference ( or distressing ) medium.
Essentially it is a single-part polymeric liquid that reacts with wet epoxy, polyester and polyurethane resins by repelling itself away, thereby stimulating movement and blooming in concentric outward circles. It is not a paint or a resin. It will not cure on its own.
This dispersion reaction creates motion into self-contained cellular structures as seen in the photos.
Droplets should be added to the pigmented resin surface immediately after mixing / pigmenting. The motion is instigated instantaneously and can be further enhanced by applying heat in that area. Do not wait for the resin to gel or partially cure as resi-BLAST will not work at all.
resi-BLAST will not react or retard the curing cycle of the resin. The additive may leave shallow uniform depressions ( craters ) in the resin surface which can add to its optical effect. In addition any residue of the additive will migrate to the surface of the resin and should be wiped off with a dry cloth after the resin has fully cured ( see individual product datasheets for this info ). This residue can also act as a polish layer to further enhance a glossy resin surface.
resi-BLAST is safe and user-friendly. It is odourless, inert, stable, non-toxic, non-flammable, non-VOC with with no aggressive chemical, solvent or alcohol ink content. MSDS available on request.
Please Note: Resi-Blast was developed and tested with our own proprietary artwork resins (Mastercast 121 & TotalCast), similarly the pigments used are exclusively from our Resi-Tint range. As a result we are not able to offer technical advice or performance warranties when used with other brands of resins and pigments
