💪🏽 LET`S START! 💪🏽
We would like to pay your attention – We don`t recommend working at temperatures below of 20 ° C and over 28 ° C, avoiding humid environments (or surfaces) application (if you are not sure on the humidity, let the resin warm up the components before pouring).
If epoxy resin was storage at temperatures below of 20 ° C and became murky, please, warm your epoxy up before using to full transparency. More detailed, please, read below.
👉🏽 LET`S MIX!👈🏽 THE PROPORTIONS ARE PRINTED ON THE BOTTLES/TANKS, PLEASE CHECK IT BEFORE USING. Being a two-component resin, you have 2 bottles at your disposal, one containing resin “A” and the other containing hardener “B”. You will need some electronic scales to weigh grams and a mixing container where you can combine the liquids.
How to calculate, how much hardener do you need? Take your proportions –JUST AN EXAMPLE – 100:55. Then take the weight of component A and multiply on B, (if 100:55 – A*0.55; if 100:70 – A*0.70; if 100:87 – A*0.87).
Please, use some electronic scales and weigh in grams to get the best results. After an accurate dosage, the resin must be mixed irregularly (meaning, always in the same direction) for at least 5-8 minutes. This part is very important, because if it is mixed only for a few seconds, it will not be homogeneous at the molecular level, therefore will remain soft / opaque in some parts.
Mix evenly on the edges and bottom of the container. (Do not mix very quickly or forcefully because that would cause a lot of bubbles). We do not recommend using a mixer (of course, you can, but, please, not at high speeds!), as this leads to the formation of microbubbles, which will be difficult to remove. The carefully you mix – the less bubbles.
Remember, the quality of the future casting depends on a good mixing of the two components!
Important! Try to make the mix carefully, so that the smallest fractions of air are not formed in the resin, because visible bubbles will easily disappear from the surface naturally, and micro fractions of air are often practically invisible, but during the curing and heating of the epoxy mixture, the air in them expands and after complete curing, bubbles can be visible in the casting. This can and should be avoided if you do the kneading correctly.
How to remove the bubbles?
Although degassing (vacuum) is necessary to eliminate 100% of the bubbles, there are some tricks that can help you minimize the presence of bubbles during the creations.
1) Mix the resin longer but in a more delicate and uniform way.
2) Before mixing, heat component A (in the sun or using a radiator), so that it becomes more liquid and the bubbles rise more easily.
3) Leave it to rest for a few minutes to release the air bubbles.
4) Once launched, use a heat source (thermal pistol or fire, NOT a hairdryer) to burst the bubbles on the surface.
👋🏼 LET`S COLOUR! 👋🏼
Practically everything, including powder and metallic pigments. As long as the dyes are “dry” (for example, dust or sands) there are no problems (as long as they are perfectly dry), when, instead, you want to add pastel or liquid colours, make sure they are compatible with epoxy resins. If they are not compatible (for example enamels, tempera, acrylics) only a few drops can be added, since an excessive dosage could compromise the mechanics of the resin and its brightness (for example making it soft or sticky). There is also a “gold rule” – no more than 5% from mix weight.
Remember, it`s important to avoid contact of epoxy resin with water! From the ingress of water into the resin, it may become cloudy or not solidify! And if the hardener has been stored for a long time with a loosely twisted lid, then it can absorb moisture and it condenses in the form of microbubbles in the thickness of the casting during the curing process.
👍🏽 WHAT`S NEXT? 👍🏽
After pouring epoxy into your formwork be ensured in the “sterility” of the room so that dust and dirt will not get into the epoxy.
Important! We don`t recommend covering the filling with plywood or something dense, because this will disrupt the heat sink during the solidification of the resin!)
Remove micro-bubbles stuck in the surface layer using a hair dryer or a manual gas burner. We also recommend that you do not overheat the epoxy filling with a burner or a hair dryer, because this can cause overheating and boiling of the resin.
The full curing time of the FOOD SAFE resin is from 24 hours(depending on the temperature and humidity in the workshop. The lower the temperature and the higher the humidity, the longer the curing time of the resin.
❄️ FROZEN EPOXY ❄️
Epoxy can become frozen under 20C.PLEASE! DON`T USE FROZEN EPOXY. This may affect the result.
There is no excuse that you hold your epoxy inside a warm room, the epoxy could be frozen much before, and only proper defrosting will return the lost transparency and liquidity.
How to understand why your epoxy was frozen? The component A is murky or solid, like frozen water. Don`t worry, there is no need to dispose of your epoxy and run to leave a bad review. It`s okay. You need to do only one thing – to defrost it, warming component A to 50-70 ° C. We usually put the closed tank inside the sink with very hot water and leave it for 20-30 minutes. The problem is next – the more epoxy inside the tank, the more difficult to warm it properly, so just repeat the procedure. If it doesn`t help, just try again, because we sold thousands of tons of the epoxy resin and every time the problem was sorted out by waiting a little bit longer in hot water (of course with the closed lid). Yes, we totally understand that it causes excessive movements, but it`s natural and it could happen with any other epoxy.
Of course, after defrosting you need to cool the component A to room temperature before using.
🔥 HOW TO AVOID OVERHEATING? 🔥 Maximum pouring level: 1.5 cm. It may vary from the full weight of poured epoxy, sizes of project and temperature when you pour. Not following instructions may cause overheating.
If you need to make a larger layer, just pour in several steps, waiting 8-10h the first time; 10-12h in the second time and 12+h the third time).
When creating a coating with epoxy resin, do not fill the mixture with a thickness of less than 1.5 mm, otherwise, after curing, there is a chance of shrinkage with the formation of “craters” – small depressions on all surfaces of the fill.
If one side of casting is more than 100cm long, please, create your project in layers (each layer being 1-2cm thinner than recommended) with a time interval like above – (waiting 8-10h the first time; 10-12h the second time and 12+h in the third time).
If you do a Round casting, and the required weight A+B exceeds 3kg, create your project in the same way as above (less thickness per application + longer waiting between layers).
Be especially careful when working with resins for large castings, when mixing a large amount of resin, do not leave the mixture for a long time in one container – pour it immediately into other smaller containers to avoid the “mass” effect: the resin begins to heat up quickly and hardens instantly with defects without the chances to change it in any way.
IF YOU MEET MORE THAN ONE EXCEPTION IN YOUR PROJECT, REDUCE THE SIZE OF YOUR APPLICATION AGAIN.
During processing, use protective masks, gloves, and other protective clothing.
In case of contact with eyes, immediately rinse with cold water for 15 minutes and immediately consult a doctor.
