This Platinum RiverTable deep cast Epoxy Resin can be used in so many casting applications including: — Jewelery, Furniture, Promotional Products, Trophies, Flower display, Artwork, Model Making, Set Designs, 'One Off' niche products etc. A quality multi purpose Epoxy Resin for all those volume use jobs - AND it contains no solvents whatsoever!
It is not important that this resin is used for volume casting only as it will cure properly on shallow casts (as little as 1 mm thick - thats something that very few other resins will do!).
Here are some tips for that ultimate result: In cold weather, heat the base resin up by placing the jugs in the sun or in hot water for a few hours before your cast (try to get close to 25 deg C). This is also done so as to allow the chance for any entrapped air due to transport or the manufacturing process to rise.
Just look at some of the applications below and you will find that this is the ONE resin for your many casting projects and applications.:
* Furniture Manufacture - it has superior long working time, good cures times, easy to mix by volume and can be even be applied over most other brands of cured epoxies. When modified with fillers, tints and pigments, outstanding effects can result. We recommend a top-coat of our Platinum 2:1 SuperCoat food grade, non-toxic series Epoxy Resin for a durable rock hard surface elevated temperature.
For smaller items? We would recommend our 2:1 ratio, Platinum SuperCoat (available from our store at diystore)
* RiverTable Epoxy Resin is ideal for Cast Coffee Table applications, Decorative Front Doors, Boardroom Tables, Dining Tables, Boutique Restaurants- the list is endless, as this is the world standard for Water Clarity and extremely high UV resistance system.
Coverage: Obviously depends on volume required. Epoxy resins before mixing act a little like honey - in that in summer, they are very runny while in winter they are very stiff and so to thin the resin in winter? Then simply place in hot water.
Clean all brushes, rollers and tools with Acetone or even hot soapy water. Use protective gloves when working with this or any epoxy type product.
RiverTable Epoxy Resin has no strong detectable smell, it is always good practice to work in a well ventilated area, dust free environment, indoors or outdoors.
Mix this RiverTable Epoxy Resin in the ratio: 2 parts Resin to 1 part Hardener by VOLUME. If casting large volumes there are special techniques used by professionals to get their stunning results. Please view our suppliers web page for some tips prior on starting large jobs as an amateur - AA Composites.
This product has a long cure time at ambient temperature (Working time - initial set- 1 1/2 hrs at 25 deg C. 40% humidity, with initial or ambient cure at 24 hrs and then mid cure 3 days with final cure at 10 days). Post cure could be needed at cooler temperature and high humidity - so try to avoid that post cure and cast the resin at above 10 deg C and ideally at 25 deg C. For those needing to post cure? The maximum increase in temperature to reach post cure temperature is 13 deg C per hour and a maximum cool off temperature is 25 deg C per hour to prevent crystallisation. Post cure at 60 deg C for 16 - 24 hours after ambient cure.
Mix correctly and follow web site mixing techniques. All these steps are designed to get the very highest quality results as this resin can give.
Shelf life of epoxies is well over 24 months.
Working time 1 1/2 hours at 25 deg C. Initial cure 24 hrs with mid cure 3 days, full cure 10 days.
