Slow Cure Casting Epoxy Resin (for thick pours)
FULL SATISFACTION GUARANTEED!!
Slow Cure Casting Epoxy Resin:
This resin has longer curing time and therefore is suitable for project where thick pours are required such as River Tables etc. You can do up to 2" pour at a time and if you need more thickness, give a gap of at least 6 hours and do another pour on top of the previous one.
It comes in two parts - Resin & Hardener. These two parts MUST be mixed in precise ratio and mixed well to get best results.
Crystal clear, high gloss and transparent, yellow resistant
Automatic leveling and anti-foaming
Low set-to-touch and cure time
Goes well with pigments of all colors
Non toxic, low odor and low VOC
High hardness after drying
Glossy like mirror
Ratio A to B: 2.7 to 1 (by volume) OR 3 to 1 (by weight)
Pot Life: 45 to 60 min
Coverage: 1" thickness of 1 sqft area requires about 2.5 L (Part A + B)
Set to touch time: 36 to 48 hrs
Curing Time: 72 to 96 hrs (varies based on ambient temp / humidity / thickness)
Surface ready to use time: 96 hrs
Step 1: Wear safety glasses and gloves. Measure 2.7 parts of part A and 1 part of part B by volume (OR 3 to 1 by weight). Mix thoroughly.
Step 2: Make sure the surface area is horizontal to the ground and leveled. Pour the epoxy on the surface all the way through the area. This epoxy self levels itself so no need to move it around with any tools. Let the epoxy fall over the edges and coat the vertical edges. The liquid epoxy that falls over the edges will form bumps and there is no need to worry about that. These can be sanded off once the epoxy is dried and cured.
Step 3: If multiple flood coats are to be applied, make sure that each flood coat is less than 2" thick and maintain a gap of 4 hours between each flood coat.
Step 5: Pop air bubbles using a heat gun or plumber torch.
Step 6: Leave the surface for epoxy curing

My experiences with this resin have been nothing but amazing. The mixability is awesome, with little to no bubbles. I would recommend just using the weight method with a kitchen scale and not measuring the 2.7:1. I have not done clear yet so I can not speak to the quality there, I would think that this is where the very expensive brands might prevail, but pure clear isn't overly recommended as over the years all epoxy will yellow. I look forward to doing a lot of work with this epoxy.
I had a fantastic experience with this resin. This was my first time doing a resin pour and I was extremely nervously, especially because my first project was a full guitar body! I mixed the resin as instructed, stirred in some gold flake for flare, then poured it into a platinum-silicone mold I made. All turned out almost entirely great! There were some bubbles and cloudiness, but only on the surface where the resin made contact with the mold-release spray I used. I'm guessing it's because I skipped the step where I brush the spray to even it out. Woops! Probably would have been crystal clear the whole way through had I done that correctly. Spent some time sanding away the surface cloudiness, then did my routing, polishing, assembly, and viola! A finished Stratocaster! Planning on making many more resin guitars in the future.
Amazing product at an unbeatable price. I've used several different brands of epoxy (some of them almost double the price) and this is by far my favorite to work with. I will definetaly be using trustic epoxy for all of my future projects.
Good product !
The company was a pleasure to work with! Available to answer my questions anytime! (I had several lol) I was able to make this river table with bullets! My husband used to hunt with hounds, but has since got out of dogs. The flat tags have each name of one of his dogs :) The epoxy is a great quality!
