Use on coating artworks, resin paintings, table tops and timber features or anywhere you need the depth of finish (one coat of ARTIST RESIN is equal to about 50 coats of varnish).
Directions for use: Mix resin and hardener EXACTLY in the ratio shown on the label. Coverage: It takes about 3 Ltr of mixed resin to cover 1 square meter of a flat non porous surface. ARTIST RESIN has a long working time of about 45 mins (depending on temperature and humidity) and initial cure in about 18 hours. Full cure is in about 3 days. Cleaning up: Clean all brushes and fibreglass tools with Acetone or MEK. Pigments and other materials are all available separately from our store. Use protective gloves when working with this product. We have available a special hand cleaner available for cleaning up, but you can also use soap and water or white vinegar to clean your hands. Remove bubbles just after applying by spraying the completed work surface with AA Composites's 'Bubble Buster' or use a blow torch in the traditional manner.
Please Note: As this product is a very pure epoxy and it acts in a similar manner just like pure honey (epoxies act similar to honey in that, during winter, honey is extremely thick and yet in summer, that same honey is very thin and runny). So to it is with epoxies. And just like pure honey which sometimes turns into sugar? Pure Epoxy resin can act in a similar way and develop crystals (usually in part A). This is not from faulty resin but common thought is that it is from the cyclic hot days and cold nights when stored. An easy fix is to heat the jugs up in very hot water for about 30 mins and this will restore the resin to be perfectly clear. That heating is also a good thing to help remove air bubbles trapped in the epoxy due to transportation. If I have to do a critical pour or application, as a tip, I heat the jugs up the day before the pour and let them cool down for the day of my pour. Additionally when mixing the two parts. I decant into the mixing container by pouring down the side of the container. All this effort is to try to limit any possible air bubbles that could ruin the finished product. Even when mixing, I use a wide rule and do not even take it off the bottom of the mixing container. Mixing is so important to get the best results and can take 3 to 5 mins. I also use Bubble Buster spray to help remove any bubbles generated when mixing to help them come to the surface.
