How to use Metal Cast Metallic Coating/Casting material
|Mix ratio||3 parts powder to 1 part liquid activator|
|Drying time||approx. 30 minutes, demould in 1-2 hours, can be abraded after 4-5 days|
|Pot Life||10-15 minutes|
|Shelf life||9 months|
Thoroughly mix at a ratio of 3:1 powder to liquid, you can adjust the ratio up and down to suit the viscosity you require. If you are using Metal Cast to coat a surface then the mix can be made slightly more viscous so that it self-levels.
When lining a mould a suitable backing material is required, i.e. hydroflow or total CAST Art Resin.
Using a mould - Immediately apply Metal Cast to the mould in a 1-2mm thick coat using a paint brush or spatula, ensuring all areas are covered. Leave to cure for 20 - 30 minutes before pouring the backing material.
Coating existing surfaces - dependant on how smooth or textured you want the surface to be, apply Metal Cast using a brush or trowel to achieve the desired result.
For best results leave the coating to harden for 4-5 days before lightly abrading with 0000 grade wire wool or Scotch-Brite Pads. This will ensure the Metal Cast is completely dry and give the best brushed aluminium finish.
