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 mix them by color especially for you.

Putty, glue paste or wood glue and lamination based on epoxy resin
Make an easy to sand lightweight putty based on universal epoxy resin slowly in combination with the white microballoons.
Universal epoxy casting resin can also be mixed slowly with various fillers to obtain a desired mass. With cotton fiber you make a strong wood glue and with Sylothix an extremely strong glue paste for many different applications.
Universal epoxy slow casting resin can also be used for lamination. Because both the fast and slow Universal epoxy casting resin of Flow Resin is UV-stable, it can be perfectly used for laminating with carbon fiber (carbon), especially given the beautiful appearance of the carbon.
