UV Resin Supplies – Buy Online in Australia
UV Resin is a transparent medium that dries very hard under ultraviolet light or the direct sun. It is best suited to small creations, garment accessories, encapsulated objects, and small moulds, especially when you require accuracy. Compared to conventional epoxy products, you can work with it longer because it won't dry without the aid of a torch or unless in direct sun.
Our adhesives kit comes in 30ml tubes and can be bought at discount prices when you buy in larger levels. For your convenience, we also sell curing torches that can be used indoors and in the evening. However, it isn't designed for use as a flashlight and shouldn't be pointed towards people or pets eyes.
Other materials that can be used effectively are casting moulds, usually made of silicone, mixing cups and stirrers.
Advantages of UV Resin
There are many advantages of using this source of material; however, it is best used in some situations over others. If you don't want a fast-drying agent, then it's certainly a choice you would avoid. Some favourable and advantageous reasons to use this are:
- Excels in transparency and hardness
- Come in a tube with an easy applicator, screw cap and small tip for accuracy
- Fast curing, depending on what light source is used
- Ideal to use for jewellery projects, doming and other applications
We recommend patience when using this product because it will take time to achieve the best result when pouring thin layers. This helps reduce bubbles from developing, although using a hot air dryer can help ease the situation. The main disadvantage is that it's very heat sensitive, so you need to be careful when using any heat around it.
When using UV resin, you gain the best outcomes by following the instructions on the pack. Generally, this will include:
- Depths of 1-2cm will take anywhere up to 5 minutes to cure
- Takes up to 10 minutes to cure in the direct sun
- More significant depths times will vary
- Stronger light sources will quicken curing time.
