    What is an Epoxy Casting Resin?

    Epoxy casting resin is of a less viscous consistency than normal epoxy coating resin. An epoxy casting resin made for casting works. Such as moulded objects, figurines, filling wood, deep pouring, and jewellery.

    Unlike most coating resins. A casting resin normally takes a longer time to cure and can take up to one week for demoulding. Low viscosity resin systems. Allow the resin to penetrate and fill even the tiniest gaps and cavities. Casting resin will normally cure a lot harder than coating resin systems.

    To use our epoxy casting resin kit, you will need to mix part a being the resin with part b the hardener. The ratio of hardener to resin will vary depending on the type of resin you are using. See our resin calculator for more information on ratios. Once mixed, the mixture will begin to cure and harden over a set time. 

    Once cured, casting resin can be polished or sanded to create a smooth, hard and glossy finish. 

    Why Should I Use A Slow Curing Casting Epoxy Resin

    When using very slow curing casting systems. You will find demoulding may take up to 7 days and up to 14 days. Until the cured resin is hardened enough for sanding and polishing. Normally slow casting epoxy resin systems are designed for very large projects.

    Such as River Tables or large volume castings (over 3 litres). So when casting smaller objects, curing times can be very long. ArtCast is designed for smaller casting. That needs extreme toughness for everyday wear and tear. It's the perfect choice for intricate designs. Like keychains or keyrings to pyramid moulds.

    Epoxy Casting Resins Troubleshooting Tips and FAQs

    If you're having trouble with Casting Resin or the Art Casting Process. Here are some troubleshooting tips and FAQs that may help.

    Why does my Casting have wet/uncured resin on the bottom? When measuring Casting Resin. If you find the casting is curing hard but has wet tacky spots usually on the bottom. This is the outcome of not enough hardener.

    Why is my Casting soft & malleable after it's cured? When measuring Casting Resin. If you find that once resin is cured, the resin is still soft and malleable. This is the outcome of having too much hardener.

    What are some possible causes of Resin going hard in the cup? More than 10% ink/pigment/acrylic paint to Resin ratio used. *Making note that some acrylic paints or pigment additives may not be compatible. Which may accelerate curing due to high water content. Too much Part B, measuring is to be precise. Room being too warm, 22-25 degrees is ideal. Leaving mixed Resin in a confined space (e.g. cup, jug). This will accelerate curing and could encounter aggressive exothermic reactions.

    My resin isn't hardening. What could be the problem? This can sometimes happen when mixing the resin and hardener together incorrectly. A little hint is to pour Part B (Hardener) first. Then add Part A (Resin) this to help the resin not to stick to the sides of the container or jug. Mix until Resin and Hardener become clear and free of streaks, remember to scrap the sides and stick.

    Why are there bubbles in my cast? Bubbles can form for a few different reasons. One possibility is that you mixed the resin and hardener too thoroughly. Before pouring it into the mould. Another possibility is that your piece is too thick. Which can trap pockets of air inside as it cures, this tends to be more of a problem in colder weather.

    Why do I have bubbles on the outer edge of my casting? Some moulds can sometimes trap air bubbles on the walls, this can be due to rough mould surface. Or with very small high detail moulds. A little trick is to rub a mixing stick or brush across all mould wall surfaces. This will help the air bubbles detach.

    My mould is sticking to the resin - What can I do? There are a few things you can try to prevent this from happening. First, make sure you're using a mould release agent on your mould or DIY mould before pouring in the resin. It could also be the resin hasn't completely cured and maybe still malleable. Allowing more time before de-moulding.

    Which resin for casting?

    Choosing the right resin for casting depends on the specific project and desired outcome. Fast cast resin is ideal for smaller, detailed pieces that require a quick curing time. It is also suitable for creating thin layers or coatings on surfaces, as it sets in just a few minutes.

    Slow cast resin, on the other hand, provides more working time before it begins to harden, making it better suited for larger projects or those with intricate designs. This type of resin cures at a slower pace but results in a strong and durable final product.

    For projects that require thick pours or deep casts, deep pour resin is the best choice. This type of resin has a longer curing time and can accommodate depths of up to several inches without overheating or cracking.

    The type of resin used can also affect the colour and clarity of the finished piece. Clear casting resin is a popular choice for creating jewellery or pieces with embedded objects, as it has a high level of transparency and minimal yellowing over time.

    However, if you are looking to add some colour to your project, opaque or pigmented resins are available in a variety of shades.

    It's best to do some research and consult with experienced casters before deciding on the right resin for your project. In conclusion, selecting the appropriate resin for casting is crucial for achieving the desired results and ensuring the success of your project.
