ULTRACAST XT resin produces a high gloss, optically clear, attractive finish. It's self-levelling, can be turned, cut, sanded and polished making it ideal for the following applications:
- Sealing and coating of artwork/paintings made with acrylic paint, oil paint & watercolour paint
- Sculptures and mould castings (up to 1000cc in volume)
- Tabletops, coasters, trays, bar counters and kitchen worktops
- Penny floor and pigmented epoxy floor applications
Mixing ratio by weight & volume: 100 parts resin to 50 parts hardener
ULTRACAST XT resin and hardener are mixed by volume 2:1. Pour the two components into a suitable mixing cup.
The mixing ratio must be accurately followed to achieve perfect results. It is not possible to change the ratio which would result in the resin not drying properly and lower mechanical properties.
The mixed components should be thoroughly stirred for 3-4 minutes to ensure an even consistency. Once your mixture is ready, you have up to 80 minutes to work with ULTRACAST XT resin.
Health & Safety
The resins from this range are formulated with the most modern and safest epoxy chemicals available, all epoxy resins are chemicals and should be managed and handled with proactive safety hygiene and responsible care.
Adding inks/paints/mica powder/glitter to epoxy resin will change its properties and may reduce its non-toxicity. If you use alcohol inks DO NOT use a flame to remove bubbles, as alcohol is flammable.
