Fake glass Set / Movie glass
Easily pour polyester objects that break like glass
- Crystal clear
- UV resistant
- Designed for easy use
- Low viscosity (liquid)
- Can be molded without vacuum.
With this Film glass set based on crystal clear polyester you can easily create items that look like glass or mimic broken glass effects.
To use it as breakable glass, please cast thin walled items.
It is also great to use for water effects for scale models. The use of filler fumed silica will make it paste like.

* Full cure @ 20 ° C after a few days. Please note that touching the casting before it is completely cured migh leave finger prints.
Add the A and B components in the proper weight parts together (100: 1.5-2.5) and mix the components well. For smaller castings, we recommend adding some more harder (2 to 2.5%) in larger castings just slightly less (1.5 to 2%)
Pour the mixed product with a constant and thin jet into the mold. Take care not to entrpa air. Excessive heat in castings of more than 15mm thickness can be prevented by pouring several successive layers (allow to the layer set before the following layer is added). De-mould only after the specified time has elapsed or better yet after several days. The thermal and mechanical properties will develop rapidly, but it is possible to improve the thermal behavior by post curing the casting for 2 hours at 60 oC for every 2 cm of thichkness. It is recommended to process the products at 20 °C and to pre-heat the mold to 40 oC. After the cast has de-aired you can place it in an oven at 40 oC to speed up the curing process.
Always work in a well ventilated area and use protection gloves and safety goggles.
The Film glass Set is a kit. The two components thus come together.
Properly sealed and stored out of direct sunlight around 15 -25oC the shel life is at least 6 months.
The products in liquid form are harmful to health. Skin contact with one or both of the components must be prevented. Prolonged or frequent use of this product will cause vapors to be irritating to your respiratory system. When handling this product, wear protective gloves. Always work in a well ventilated area.
