Clear Coating Epoxy Resin is a water clear, UV stable, low viscosity resin system for coating, doming and resin art applications. It is a solvent free epoxy specifically formulated as a clear, ultra-high gloss coating system that will self-level and cure at room temperature. The system has excellent air-release and has been optimised for extended UV stability.

It is a solvent free epoxy specifically formulated as a clear, ultra-high gloss coating system that will self-level and cure at room temperature. The system has excellent air-release and has been optimised for extended UV stability. This resin is not suitable for embedding, casting or coating more than 2mm thick, we recommend our Bio Casting Resin Slow Hardener for these applications.
1 litre = 0.6 square metres, approximately subject to the substrate it is being poured onto.
90 parts hardener to 100 parts resin by weight
1 part hardener to 1 part resin by volume
Note: Care should be taken when dispensing and mixing. Do not attempt to control the cure time by altering the hardener ratio. Please note that the room temperature will affect cure characteristics. Measure and mix Clear Coating Epoxy Resin with hardener using our range of measuring and mixing equipment.

Ensure surfaces are dry and free from contaminants. Use two clean plastic containers of equal volume to measure the correct proportion of resin and hardener. Pour the contents of both into a larger container and stir the two ingredients thoroughly, for at least 3 minutes –longer in cooler temperatures. Tip the mixed resin and hardener into a second large container and thoroughly mix again for a further 1-2 minutes. Take care to stir the material slowly so air entrapment is kept to a minimum.
Clear Coating Epoxy Resin may be directly poured or brushed onto a surface and will self level to produce a very high gloss. For best results apply at temperatures between 15ºC and 35ºC, and at below 85 percent humidity.
Air bubble release is greatly enhanced by the use of a small heat gun or mini gas torch. Hold the torch approximately 100 to 150mm off the surface and keep moving the flame across the surface. Heat can be applied as many times as needed in the 30 minute working time. Inspect and remove any lint with tweezers. Clear Coating Epoxy Resin Epoxy should be cured in a warm 25°C, dust free area.
Clear Coating Epoxy Resin is not to be thinned under any circumstances, as it has been formulated to optimal viscosity for this specific application.
