Choosing the Right Materials for you Molds:

Epoxy Resin:

Epoxy Resins are the preferred choice for casting durable, long lasting resin projects or as a protective coating on existing products. Epoxy resin requires two components a catalyst and a hardener that is mixed together inducing a chemical reaction that will allow the liquid components to cure into a hardened product. Depending on the size of your project curing times can range 12-48 hours. Its maximum layer thickness is 5mm so it is best suited for thicker projects. If your resin product is intended for outdoor use it is recommended to apply a coating of UV resin to the outside to protect your product from yellowing and UV breakdown from the sun.

Unlike Epoxy resin, UV resin only contains on component that is instantly ready for use to dye and cure under a UV light. Its maximum layer thickness is 1mm so it is best suited for fine details inside of an epoxy coated piece, or in smaller pieces like jewelry.
