It is ambient temperature curing, solvent free, high build and UV stable.

|Mix ratio|| by volume: 100 parts resin to 100 parts hardener
by weight: 100 parts resin to 90 parts hardener

|Curing time||second layer after 20 minutes, touch dry in 2-3 hours at 23°C, full cure in 4-5 days|
|Coverage||1 litre of the mixed product will cover approx. 1.43 m²@ 0.5 mm thick (1kg = 1 litre)|
|Pot Life||15-20 minutes at 23°C (250g mixed mass)|
|Shelf life||one year in sealed containers|
The mixing ratio must be accurately followed to achieve perfect results. It is not possible to change the ratio which would result in the resin not drying properly and lower mechanical properties.
The mixed components should be thoroughly stirred for 3-4 minutes to ensure an even consistency. Epoxy systems tend to heat up in a pot than as a thin film, only mix the amount needed for use within the pot life of the product. If it’s too gloopy to measure properly, simply pre-warm the containers by placing in hot water to lower the viscosity.
Pour small amounts of the mixed Hi-Build resin into each of the 2 small cups provided in the kit. If you have bought a top up pack of pigments simply add more cups and split the Hi-Build between all the cups. Add the resi-tint MAX to the resin in the small cups one drop at a time. They are very concentrated so you will need They are very concentrated so you only need a small amount per cup.
The product can then be dropped onto the surface to create domed 3D shapes or lines. The resin pour is more controllable if you drop using a plastic spoon
Health & Safety
Although our resins are formulated with the most modern and safest epoxy chemicals available, all epoxy resins are chemicals and should be managed and handled with proactive safety hygiene and responsible care.
- Always wear nitrile gloves (or use a specialist resin barrier cream)
- Wear a respirator when sanding partially-cured resin
- It is advisable to work in a well ventilated room
- We advise the use of safety goggles
- Avoid skin contact (if resin gets on skin wash with plenty of soap & water)
- DO NOT eat, drink or smoke while working
- In case of eye contamination wash with plenty of water for 15 minutes and consult medical advice immediately
Adding inks/paints/mica powder/glitter to epoxy resin will change its properties and may reduce its non-toxicity. If you use alcohol inks DO NOT use a flame to remove bubbles, as alcohol is flammable.
