Advantages of polyester casting resin
Polyester casting resin is a good resin to use for various applications.
Organic materials can be poured into the resin
Can be coloured with many pigments
Very good machinability, e.g. by grinding, drilling or polishing.
Polyester casting resin shrinks, is flammable and gives off an odour during processing. It is also not suitable for moulding in a wooden mould.
Mix the resin with 1-3% Mekp hardener (depending on the volume to be poured) and pour the resin into the mould without any bubbles. The pot life is 30 minutes at 20°C. Always prepare small quantities according to the pot life. When pouring large volumes of resin, add a maximum of 0.5 to 1% hardener. Do not pour metal objects, as they may react with the resin.
