Bio-based, clear, UV stable epoxy for castings of 10 to 15mm thickness using the SD7160 hardener. This system is easily pigmented with our range of epoxy pigments for translucent, opaque and luminous effects. This product has been designed as a casting resin, not a coating resin. The open surface typically needs to be flatted and polished to achieve a perfectly flat, glossy finish. The open surface can also be coated with Surf Clear to produce a high gloss, flat finish. UV Stability – This product offers enhanced UV stability compared to GreenCast 160. It will resist yellowing and is water resistant, however, it does not provide 100% UV protection and is not suitable for permanent, outdoor exposure. UV protection can be improved by overcoating with protective urethane paint such as TopClear or UV resistant wax polish. Curing Time – Depends on the ambient temperature but around 12hrs to touch-dry, but longer in thin castings. Allow at least 48hrs before attempting to do any finishing work on the resin. The epoxy will take about 30 days to reach full hardness although this can be accelerated with a post cure of 24hr @ 40 to 60°C. Kit – Each kit contains a bottle of resin and a bottle of hardener which are mixed together at 100:50 parts by weight or 100:60 by volume.
