Clear Casting Resin is a water-clear polyester casting resin used to produce clear castings and for embedding and encapsulations applications. Also can be used as a general purpose casting resin and heavily filled without losing viscosity.
When requiring a clear cast this material can only be cast in a minimum of 5mm and maximum of 20mm at a time. However you can easily build it up in layers to achieve whatever thickness you require.
This Clear Casting Resin is a pre-accelerated low reactivity orthophthalic acid based resin with a very gradual cure. The product has a low peak exotherm combined with a low polymerisation shrinkage and high brilliance after polymerisation. This resin is UVlight stabilised.
Requires MEKP Resin Catalyst which should be added at 2% (2:100 Catalyst:Resin) - this needs to be measured fairly accurately so we recommended you purchase a Measuring Syringe for small amounts or a Catalyst Dispenser for larger amounts. These are both available from us.
Gel Time: 12-18 minutes (at 25°C)
Cure Time: 42-57 minutes (at 25°C)
1kg Resin requires 20g MEKP Resin Catalyst
