Flow Resin Epoxy casting resin for large castings up to a layer of 10cm. Very suitable for epoxy river tables, for example.
- Filling industrial molds requiring long processing time
- Creating river tables where large volumes and heights have to be reached
- Encapsulating objects
Advantages Flow Resin Epoxy casting resin for large castings
- UV stable and highly transparent
- Excellent self-venting ability
- Mixing ratio by weight 100:50 or 2:1
- Good chemical resistance and resistance to moisture and water after curing
- Processing height 1 to 10 cm

Applying color in casting resin
If you want to apply a nice color instead of the standard transparent casting resin, there is plenty of choice! We have clear (transparent) and metallic pigments. Or choose your own RAL pigments and we will mix them according to color especially for you.

- Processing time 500gr* at 20 degrees: 360 minutes
- Curing time (20 degrees): 3 – 6 days
- Full curing: 14 days
- Minimum casting height: 10mm (1 cm)
- Maximum casting height: 100mm (10 cm)
- Consumption per m2 (per mm height): 1.10 kg
- Temperature resistance: 65 degrees
*With a large quantity, the processing time is shorter due to exothermic reaction in the mixing bucket. (with an exothermic reaction, heat is released, which accelerates the reaction that was already going on and thus becomes relatively larger with larger quantities) Never mix more than necessary.
