The advantages of polyester casting resin
Polyester casting resin is a good resin to use for a variety of applications.
Organic materials can be poured into
Can be colored with a wide range of pigments
Highly machinable, e.g. by grinding, drilling or polishing.
Polyester casting resin shrinks, is flammable and emits an odor during processing. Moreover, it is not suitable for molding in wooden molds.
Mix the resin with 1-3% Mekp hardener (depending on the volume to be poured) and pour the resin into the mold without any bubbles. Pot life is 30 minutes at 20°C. Always prepare small quantities according to the pot’s lifespan. 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.
