  1. Casting above the maximum pouring height per process is not recommended. The resin may boil as a result of the reaction and yellowing, cracking and deformation can occur. By reducing the temperature (room, substrate, material temperature to e.g. 15 °C and reducing the area to e.g. 15x15cm, casting heights of up to 50cm can be achieved in one casting process
  2. There is no maximum time limit to pour the next layer.
  3. No epoxy resin is completely UV stabilised. However, high-quality raw materials and additives such as UV absorbers can increase UV protection. By using a top coat, you can increase UV stabilisation even further. Possible top coats are e.g. transparent polyurethane (PU) resins or lacquers which are painted or sprayed onto the epoxy coating as a finish.
  4. When properly used and completely cured, it is VOC free..
  5. According to formula without free BPA.
  6. Our epoxy resin systems have a high scratch resistance, but are not completely scratch-resistant. Scratch resistance can be increased by using a top coat. Possible top coats are e.g. transparent polyurethane (PU) resins or lacquers which are painted or sprayed onto the epoxy coating as a finish.
  7. The heat deflection temperature indicates up to which temperature the cured epoxy resin system remains mechanically stable. At higher temperatures, the cured epoxy can soften. By annealing (curing at higher temperatures >60°C), the heat resistance can be increased.
  8. If the lid of the container is closed directly after opening, the shelf life after opening is at least 6 months.
