CER Clear epoxy casting resin can be applied to canvass, wood, MDF and glass and can be readily pigmented by the addition of our Resi-Tint range of acrylic pigments, Resi-Tint Plus Metallic powders or Resi-Metal metallic pigments
The mixing must be accurately followed to achieve perfect results. It is not possible to change the ratio which would result in the resin not drying properly and lower mechanical properties.
2 parts resin to 1 part hardener by volume provides a hard casting once cured. By weight 100g resin to 45g hardener.Pour the hardener first and then the resin. The mixed components should be thoroughly stirred for 3 - 4 minutes to ensure an even consistency. Epoxy systems tend to heat up in a pot than as a thin film, only mix the amount needed for use within the pot life of the product. The maximum volume that can be poured in one go is 15 litres. Curing time can be demoulded in 3-4 days at 22DegC depending on volume cast, full cure in 21 days. Pot life 10 hours at 22DegC (500g mixed mass). Shelf life 1 year in sealed containers
The mixed resin can be tinted with our Resi-Tint pigments, Resi-Metals or Eli-Glow in the dark powders to make your artwork pop. Resi-Blast will add stunning cells and effects, it can then be poured into a mould. The mould can be plastic or made of silicone rubber, moulding can be carried out by gravity or under vacuum. Temperature should be between 18 to 25DegC, humidity level below 70%. A 2:1 mix will provide a hard casting, suitable for manufacture of fancy shapes, decorative items etc. Should a new mix be applied onto cured resin, the contact surface should always be sanded in order to enhance adhesion, but only after 5 days. Once the resin is mixed and poured into the mould gently pass warm air from a heat gun or hairdryer on slowest speed setting, this will assist in removal of any bubbles generrated during mixing.
