Clear Polyester Casting Resin is a clear colored resin perfect for castings, embedding, jewellery and pen blanks. Our casting resin is specially formulated to cure to a crystal clear finish. When your resin arrives it may have a yellow tinge to it, don’t worry this is normal once cured the resin will dry to a crystal clear finish. We use a crack and craze resistant formula so you can be sure that cracking wont occur on your casting projects.
Our casting resin is Australia’s most loved resins in the Art and Hobby industry. You can be sure you are receiving the highest quality resin every time. Please note this casting resin is not ideal to be used in the popular river table projects. We suggest using Trojan Fibreglass 1000 Series Epoxy for this project.
- Resin should be mixed in a clean plastic disposable container or measuring jug. Resin should be measured by volume or weight only. It is very important to accurately measure resin and catalyst for optimum performance.
- Ideal resin temperature is 18-25°c or room temperature. Resin temperature outside of this will have a change in pot life and working time.
- Mix Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide (Catalyst) with resin at a ratio of 1 – 2% by weight or volume. 1% in hotter weather (+25°c), 2% in cooler weather (15-24°c).
- Use a syringe or scales to measure catalyst accurately, add to measured resin and mix slowly, ensuring not to create excessive air entrapment. Mix for approx. 30 seconds, ensuring to scrape bottom and edges of the mixing container.
- Resin pot life will be approx. 8 – 15 mins mixed at a 2% catalyst ratio *
