UltraCast XT Epoxyresin Crystal Clear heat resistant till 95°C
Ultra Cast XT is an epoxy resin which once cured gives a very clear results 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.
- High temperature resistance up to 95°C*
- Crystal clear
- Suitable for Coating kitchen tops and tables
- Suitable for casting coasters up to 5 mm thick
- UV stable
- High gloss
- Long pot life
- High chemical resistance
- Good viscosity what makes casting and coating easy
- Solvent free
- Odorless after treatment
- Excellent adhesion on all types of materials
- Suitable for food-safe coating
* Please note that this epoxy needs 2 to 3 weeks of curing at room temperature to reach final temperature resistance.
Mixing ratio in weight: A:B = 100:50
Processing time at 20°C: 90 minutes
De-mold time at 20°C: 24 hours
Time to fully cure: 14~21 days
* 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). Final properties like temperature resistance are obtained after 2 to 3 weeks at room temperature.
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.
The addition of alcohol pigments must be done carefully as this can cloud the surface, cause dents, etc. Also the flame resistance is destroyed or at least deteriorated by the addition of alcohol pigments.
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.
If the product has become too cold during transport or storage (below 15°C), the components may become cloudy. This can be solved by heating the package tightly closed in a bain marie to 60 °C and keeping it there for a few hours, shaking occasionally
The cured product can be thrown away in the trash. Dispose of uncured components and packaging with residues at an environmental point or treat according to the laws of your country.
