UltraCast XT Epoxy Crystal Clear till 90°C
Ultra Cast XT epoxy resin ideal for clear laquering of e.g. kitchen bars and tabels with a heat resistance up to 90°C.

Ultra Cast XT is an epoxy resin that cures at room temperature and gives a very transparent end result. The Ultra XT Cast Epoxy has a high chemical and temperature resistance and can even be exposed to temperatures up to 90°C. The epoxy is solvent free making processing less dangerous. The Ultra Cast XT can be used for coating for example, table tops, bar tops, counters or kitchen blades but can also be used for casting of coasters, resin-art or a coin floor.

Processing time @ 20°C*

Time to fully cure
* The above values are at a mixture with a total volume of 250 grams. At larger volumes and/or at an ambient temperature higher than 20 ° c the process time is shortened.
Add the component A and B in the right proportion (weight: A:B = 100:50) and mix this well. You may want to include an epoxy dye and mix again until an even color. The epoxy is now ready to be cast. Apply the epoxy with a brush or roller to provide the total surface of a thin layer. If necessary apply a second layer. This can best be done if the first layer has not been fully cured yet. Reinforcement of certain parts can be made by using fiberglass cloth. The final properties of Ultra Cast XT are achieved after the epoxy is fully cured (24 hours).
Casting a 0,5 mm layer takes 0,5 Liter per 1m2
Brushing a 3 micrometer layer takes 0,25 Liter er 1m2
The best results are achieved if you handle the mixing ratio accurately . Process the product in a room where the temperature is between 18 and 30°C. Because the Ultra XT Cast has a long processing time this epoxy is prone to high humidity. Also ventilation of air (wind) and air conditioning can affect the curing of the epoxy. If you add "too much" dye or alcohol you may also experience problems with the curing.
Adding too much filler or dye may lower heat resistance. In that case we advice adding an extra unfilled layer.
Ultra Cast XT comes in a set of: 750 grams, 1.5 kilo, 7.5 kilo and 15 kilo.
This epoxy is best stored in a dry place between 18° c and 28 °C. Opened packaging must be carefully closed to preserve the shelf life. If properly closed the epoxy has a shelf life around 2 years.
