Ultracast clear casting resin (1.5kg)
Pick up from our store or purchase online at https://resinplay.sg/collections/resin-supplies/products/ultracast-clear-casting-resin UltraCast xt is an ambient temperature curing, optically clear, solvent free epoxy coating/casting resin with excellent surface heat resistance up to 90 - 95°C. UltraCast xt resin produces a high gloss, rigid and tough coating with good impact and abrasion resistance. The excellent optical clarity and viscosity makes it ideal for the following applications: - Sealing and coating of artwork/paintings made with acrylic paint, oil paint & watercolour paints - Sculptures and mould castings (up to 1000cc in volume) - Tabletops, bar counters and kitchen worktops - Penny floor and pigmented epoxy floor applications Please be aware that if tints are used with UltraCastxt there is a chance colours could bleed into one another if poured next to each other, as the formula has a longer working time and is thinner than totalCAST art resin. For more information on the differences between UltraCast and totalCAST, please visit our FAQ page (scroll down to the resin section). Please note: This resin system needs 7-10 days to reach maximum cured properties and temperature resistance. The addition of pigments (inks, powders and pastes) as well as other resin additives (resi-BLAST, silicone, lubricants, alcohol or solvents) will lower its temperature resistance, this is because pigment substances themselves have a very low temperature threshold. The higher the addition rate of pigments & additives which are added or mixed into UltraCastxt, the more the thermal withstand of the cured mass is lowered and compromised. In this case, we recommend a final clear topcoat of UltraCastxt is applied on top of the pigmented layer to bolster its resistance against hot objects placed on it. Mixing: The mixing ratio must be accurately followed to achieve perfect results. It is not possible to change the ratio which would result in the resin not drying properly and lower mechanical properties. The mixed components should be thoroughly stirred for 3-4 minutes to ensure an even consistency. Epoxy systems tend to heat up in a pot than as a thin film, only mix the amount needed for use within the pot life of the product. Application: The product can be applied by pouring from the mixing vessel or by brush or roller. This resin can be readily pigmented by the addition of any resin pigments sold in our online store. Adding a drop of resi-BLAST will aid in creating cells and lacing effects.
