    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. 10x10cm, casting heights of up to 30cm 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 resistant. However, high-quality raw materials and additives such as UV absorbers can increase UV protection. By using a topcoat, you can increase UV resistance even further. Possible topcoats 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 topcoat. Possible topcoats 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.

Get creative now with EPODEX!

With our two epoxy resins ECO and PRO you can now create unique things. Whether for resin art or the production of epoxy resin jewellery, coasters, and other small, moulded parts - you've come to the right place! Choose now between our inexpensive ECO epoxy resin system, which is often used as an entry-level resin, and our PRO premium system, which is used for crystal clear and coloured castings up to 2cm casting height.

100% safe epoxy resins

Play it safe with your health! EPODEX epoxy resins are non-toxic (according to GHS06) and not hazardous to health (according to GHS08) according to the hazardous substance legislation of the EU and Switzerland. Our high-quality epoxy resins are 100% solvent-free and, according to the formulation, do not contain any free bisphenol A (i.e., BPA-free), which is harmful to health. This guarantees pleasant processing.

No. 1 casting resin with bubble-free curing

Never again annoying air bubbles and unevenness! Our epoxy resins self-vent at room temperature. This means that all air bubbles created by mixing and pouring disappear on their own before the epoxy cures. You do not need a heat gun to remove the bubbles. This means that there is no risk of soot stains on your epoxy resin.

Crystal clear & UV stabilised

Don't compromise and choose the clearest epoxy resin on the market. Get a *money-back guarantee now: If you find a resin that is clearer than our PRO epoxy, we'll give you your money back! (*valid up to 30 days after order). Our PRO epoxy resin also offers the maximum possible UV protection. In this way, we effectively counteract the UV-induced yellowing of the casting resin.

Epoxy Resins for Arts, Crafts & Castings up to 2cm (ECO/ PRO)

EPODEX epoxy resin is ideal for a variety of applications. From construction, through electrical engineering and furniture coating. Coat your floors, tabletops and other items. Seal pictures or make your own jewellery. No matter your project, we can help you achieve it. Our epoxy resin systems are miscible with all our colours. Application examples can be foand in the gallery.


Instructions for use

    1. Always start with an epoxy resin primer to avoid high material loss and blistering (layer thickness: 0,2-0,5mm). To do so, simply use a portion of the same clear epoxy resin. Mix resin A-component with hardener B-component. You can find the right mixing ratio in our information table ander the info button “Learn more” on this page.
    2. Stir through the edge and bottom of the mixing cup as the material will settle there. Ideally, pour into a clean mixing cup and mix again until the mixture is streak-free. This ensures that the resin A-component and hardener B-component are completely mixed together.
    3. Pour the the resin-hardener mixture onto the surface to be coated immediately after mixing, as the product may boil in the mixing cup depending on the system and the amount of substance.
    4. Paint the epoxy primer with a paint roller or brush on the desired surface. We recommend rollers made of polyamide.
    5. Let the primer cure. The curing time varies depending on the temperature, layer thickness and epoxy resin system. Please refer to our information table ander the info button “Learn more” which can be find on this page.
    6. Continue with the main coating in the same way. Processing times, pouring heights and curing times vary depending on the epoxy resin system selected and the application. You can find more detailed information in our information table ander the info button “Learn more” on this page.

Info: Epoxy resin is sensitive to any kind of moisture during curing (risk of amine blush formation, i.e. white patches in the top layer). For this reason, we recommend that you avoid any contact between water and the epoxy until it has cured completely (at least 7 days). For thin layers, cold temperatures (ambient, substrate, and resin temperatures below 20°C) and increased humidity, the time until the epoxy resin is fully cured may be extended.
