Which epoxy should I choose?
Epoxy is a very versatile product. With this decision aid you are assured of the right epoxy at home!
What are you going to use the epoxy for?
A. To coat furniture
B. As a UV-resistant top layer
C. To pour furniture or moulds
D. To create 2D artworks
E. I want to try everything with it
The best epoxy for your project can be found in the table below. Finally, choose the desired layer thickness.
|Product||Processing time||max. layer thickness|
|a||FLOW RESIN Epoxy Coating Transparent UV||20 minutes||0.5 cm|
|B||FLOW RESIN Epoxy casting resin UV resistant||120 min||3 cm|
|C||FLOW RESIN Epoxy casting resin for medium castings||120 min||3 cm|
|C||FLOW RESIN Epoxy casting resin for large castings||360 min||10 cm|
|d||FLOW RESIN UV Resin Art Epoxy MV – thick||20 minutes||0.5 cm|
|d||FLOW RESIN UV Resin Art Epoxy LV – thin||120 min||3 cm|
|E||FLOW RESIN Universal epoxy casting resin fast||20 minutes||0.5 cm|
|E||FLOW RESIN Universal epoxy casting resin slow||100 min||3 cm|
Flow Resin Epoxy casting resin for medium castings between 0.1 and 3 cm thick.
- Creating river tables provided maximum layer thickness is observed
- Casting objects with a thin to thick (0.1 to 3 cm) layer for protection
- Excellent self-venting ability
- UV stable
- Processing height 1 – 30 mm
- Mixing ratio by weight 100:33 or 3:1
Watch fun and inspiring videos on our YouTube channel about what you can make with casting resin. This video provides many insights into how to make an epoxy river table. And in this video we pour several pieces of wood into a table.
Color cast 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), metallic and RAL pigments available. In addition, the ready-made combinations such as the Earth-collection and Sea-collection .
|set||Epoxy resin (comp. A)||Hardener (comp. B)|
|1 kg||0.75 kg||0.25 kg|
|2 kg||1.50 kg||0.50 kg|
|5 kg||3.75 kg||1.25 kg|
|10 kg||7.50 kg||2.50 kg|
|20 kg||15.0 kg||5.00 kg|
|40 kg||30.0 kg||10.0 kg|
- Mixing ratio: 3:1 (100 grams of resin to 33 grams of hardener)
- Processing time 500gr at (20°C):120 minutes
- Curing time: 24 to 36 hours
- Fully cured: 7 days
- Consumption per m2 (per mm height): 1.10 kg
- Temperature resistance: 65 degrees
- Minimum casting height: 1mm (0.1cm)
- Maximum casting height: 30mm (3.0cm)
Consumption of 1.1 kg per m2 per mm height explained
Suppose you want to pour a surface of 0.25m2 (50cm by 50cm) with 2 centimeters of casting resin (because, for example, the wood parts have that height). Then 0.25m2 x 1.1kg=0.275kg is needed for 1mm height on the chosen surface of 0.25m2. But that is only enough for 1 mm height while the wood parts are 2 cm (= 20 mm). Then you need that consumption of 0.275kg x 20 = 5.5kg for your project.
