Deep Epoxy Resin, 5 to 20 cm thick casting
We have selected this epoxy casting resin especially for casting thick objects. You can use this clear epoxy resin for layers with thicknesses from 5 to 20 cm. Extremely suitable for thick river tables, large objects or pouring in objects.
This is an unparalleled product that is especially praised by the professional user for its long curing time and ease of use.
This resin is not suitable for small / thin castings, because the curing takes too long.

*With a larger quantity, the processing time and curing time will be shorter!
* If you have little experience, we recommend not to process the maximum amount in one go. If you still want to do this, work at 18°C with a mixing bucket with a large diameter and take into account a very short processing time! When casting 200 Kg, please cast layers with a maximum thickness of 5 cm.
Make sure that the surface is tight and not porous. This can cause air bubbles in the epoxy. Use a thin layer of epoxy or primer for this.
Always use safety gloves and goggles when handling this material. Process the resin at room temperature (18-25oC) and at a humidity lower than 70%. In order not to get any deformation in the surface, the temperature must remain constant during the entire curing process. Also avoid direct sunlight through a window and prevent drafts.
Add the A and B component in the correct ratio (A: B = 100: 33 by weight) and mix well. Allow enough time for mixing (2-3 minutes) and make sure the corners and bottom of the mixing bowl are included. Optionally, you can pour the whole thing into a second bowl and mix it again. Now add any color effects and stir again. Let air bubbles escape for a minute. If necessary, help by vibrating / rattling the tray. Please avoid the epoxy getting to hot in the mixing bowl. Start pouring immediately if needed.
The Epoxy resin is now ready for use. Pour the mixture into your mold or prepared model with a thin stream.
Please note that you should use a large-bottomed mixing bowl for larger quantities. Avoid creating a thick layer of epoxy in the mixing bowl as this heats up very quickly!
Removing airbubbles works best with Air extractor or by using a flame. Please do not use flames if you thinned the epoxy down with alcohol or other flamable products.
If you are going to apply the resin in several layers (multi-layer work):
Wet on wet:
When pouring a second layer of a liquid into a first layer of epoxy liquid, you have to make sure that the exothermic reaction has completely worn off. An exothermic reaction is a reaction that releases energy. In this case, heat.
If you want to be sure of this, you wait until the second layer is no longer sticky, but still retains a fingerprint when touched.
Wet on dry:
It is necessary to sand the previous layer and make it dust and grease free.
Contact with the skin must be avoided. Causes skin irritation. May cause an allergic skin reaction. Wear protective gloves when handling this product. Always work in a well-ventilated area. Toxic to aquatic life with long lasting effects.
Skin Contact: Remove all contaminated clothing and footwear immediately, unless stuck to skin. Wash immediately with plenty of soap and water.
Eye contact: Flush the eye with running water for 15 minutes. Consult a doctor.
Ingestion: rinse mouth with water. Consult a doctor.
Inhalation: Remove casualty from exposure, ensuring personal safety. Consult a doctor.
