UltraCast xt is an optically clear epoxy coating/casting resin, it is solvent free with excellent UV resistance & surface heat resistance up to 90-95°C

FREE DELIVERY TO UK MAINLAND

UltraCast xt resin produces a high gloss, flexible and tough coating with good impact and abrasion resistance. The excellent optical clarity and viscosity makes it ideal for the following applications:

  • Sealing and coating of artwork/paintings made with acrylic paint, oil paint & watercolour paints
  • Sculptures and mould castings (up to 1000cc in volume)
  • Tabletops, bar counters and kitchen worktops
  • Penny floor and pigmented epoxy floor applications

Please be aware that if tints are used with UltraCastxt there is a chance colours could bleed into one another if poured next to each other, as the formula has a longer working time and is thinner than MasterCast art resin.

Please note:

This resin system needs 7-10 days to reach maximum cured properties and temperature resistance. The addition of pigments (inks, powders and pastes) as well as other resin additives (resi-BLAST, silicone, lubricants, alcohol or solvents) will lower its temperature resistance, this is because pigment substances themselves have a very low temperature threshold. 

The higher the addition rate of pigments & additives which are added or mixed into UltraCastxt, the more the thermal withstand of the cured mass is lowered and compromised. In this case, we recommend a final clear topcoat of UltraCastxt is applied on top of the pigmented layer to bolster its resistance against hot objects placed on it.

Mixing

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.

Application

The product can be applied by pouring from the mixing vessel or by brush or roller. The mixed resin can be tinted with our resi-TINT pigments, resi-METAL or resi-TINT+ Metallic Powders to make your artwork pop. resi-BLAST will add stunning cells and effects.

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.
