Epoxy Crystal Clear

This system is designed for the casting of both small and larger clear castings with high strength.

Description

A crystal-clear epoxy casting system comprising an A and B component. The epoxy is crystal clear and the added UV blocker keeps it this way for a longer period of time.. This epoxy is very easy to pour because of its good viscosity. Use of a vacuum pump, after mixing the components, will help precenting air entrapments..

processing

While processing this material always use liquid-proof protective gloves and goggles and work in a well ventilated area. Add the A and B component in the right proportion to each other (A: B = 100: 49) and mix well. Pour the mixed product with a constant and thin jet into the mold whilst avoiding air entrapment. You can avoid excessive heat development in castings of more than 50mm thickness by casting successive layers (leave the layer to harden till it becomes sticky before the following layer). Demould only after the specified time has elapsed. The thermal and mechanical properties will develop rapidly, but it is possible to improve the thermal behavior of the casting by psot curing it a 40 oC for 24 hours.

Important

The curing time in this system is highly dependent on the thickness and size of the object to be cast. If the shape is large and / or thick it will greatly shorten the curing and working  time. The ambient temperature also plays an important role. This clear epoxy has a long working and demould time. In the case of smaller objects you can cure the cast at 40 oC  to speed up the process.

The recommended cure cycle is as follows: Allow the epoxy to cure at room temperature and then postcure for 24 hours at 40 ° C. The properties and quality of the cured epoxy will hereby increase substantially.

packing

The crystal clear epoxy casting system is supplied in a kit consisting of 1000 grams A component and 490 grams B-component.

Durability

This epoxy is best stored in a dry place between 18 o C and 28 o C. Opened packages should be processed as quickly as possible to ensure product quality. The shelf life of well-closed containers in the manner indicated is usually 6 months.

safety

In liquid form this product is harmful to your health. Avoid skin contact with either component. Vapors of this product may cause respiratory irritation with prolonged or frequent use. When handling this product, wear protective gloves. Always work in a well ventilated area. For further information see Safety Data Sheet.
