1- Translucent Epoxy casting resin for molding / filling WWA


Offer: 1.4 kg kit including epoxy resin + hardener
            kit 7 kg including epoxy resin + hardener

WWA resin is part of the Epoxy family (0% solvents) and guarantees the best results for casting and filling work, without thickness limit, for technical, industrial or decorative applications (art, sculpture, furniture) .

The WWA system is made without solvent / no toxics.

The product is perfectly translucent and allows the mixing of pigments by allowing light and color to penetrate and exit.

Our resin is perfectly compatible with many raw materials (glass, wood, concrete, stone, terracotta, metals ...) and allows for all kinds of artistic work.
It is with the resin WWA that one can make deep colors on wood, for example to realize epoxy river tables


 

Withdrawal :
Unlike polyester, polyurethane and others, our resin does not move, crack or shrink on drying.
After drying, it gives a shiny, transparent and hard object.

RESOLTECH WWA molding resin is the least viscous product (easy to use) that allows you to work without limit of thickness (unlimited possibility).
It contains a debulling additive that avoids as much as possible the formation and imprisonment of air bubbles.

The flexibility of the resin is possible by modifying its mixing ratio:

HARD version:
WWA Resin WWB4 Hardener
By volume: 2 1
in weight: 100 40

FLEXIBLE variant:
WWA Resin WWB4 Hardener
By volume: 1 1
in weight: 100 89

It is important to have a perfect and precise mix.


Drying and hardening of the resin

Life of the pot mixture: 10h Curing time: 19h

Usage tips :
- the ideal temperature is 20 to 25 ° C (better hardening and debulking)
Warning, the hotter it is, the hardening is done quickly and inversely.
And the warmer it is, the more liquid it is.

Also, be aware that the greater the thickness, the faster the product heats and hardens
In addition, the use of a large mass tends to accelerate hardening.

The mixture is very important. Most defects are caused by a bad mixture.
Weigh carefully, and stir with insistence. Apply the product after a time of 5 to 10 minutes

2 - Epoxy resin 4000 for glaze, varnishing and casting in thickness of 1cm max.

This is a quick version of the epoxy resin, so with a quick drying, but also the ability to varnish with a very beautiful level of gloss, brush, with an exceptional thickness, and self-leveling.
Ideal use on wood (furniture and tables), carbon fibers (surf, fairings ..)
Compatible with all our pearlescent pigments, or our dyes.


Calculation of the need:


Knowing that the liquid volume = the volume hardened and dry

(because no evaporation of solvent)

the volume yield is calculated as follows:

1.4 liters = 1.4m² x 1mm thick is 1.4dm3

 

Mix of Pigments

 

To mix pigments, prefer stirring.

With phosphorescent pigments, prefer gentle stirring, because the micro crystals can "cut the bonds of the resins" if one agitates too much.

 

For the mixing of phosphorescent pigments, use our Solvented pigments for Epoxy resins. They offer a greater choice of colors, and are available in smaller sizes (they diffuse light better than large pigments, and are lighter, so they sediment less)


Some tips:

- If you work in very thick, even if you can make a casting of 15 cm deep at one time, you can also do a filling in 2 or 3 times, leaving completely dry between each application, because the resin shrinks slightly during drying. We can sand the surplus, or pass a scotch tape brite between layers to create adhesion between layers.

Begin by brushing the interiors and then other layers after the first coat is completely dry.

- The more you work in thickness, the less you have to load in pigments.

- The recommended pigment load should be 15% maximum, to avoid cracking. In large thickness, a load of 5% is sufficient.

- Slow drying at room temperature is recommended.

- Final sanding should be done only when the resin is completely dry to the core

 

Epaisseur/Thickness < 0.5cm => Pigments = 5-20%

Epaisseur/Thickness < 1-2cm => Pigments = 3-10%

Epaisseur/Thickness 2-10cm => Pigments = 2-5%

 

Question:

I do not understand What are these numbers?

For 100 ml of resin to be cast how much resin must be put in it? Hardener? Should we add water?
 

Reply :

The mixture is by weight (kilograms or grams - Kg or g) or by volume (Liters or milliliters - L or ml)

for example :

By volume: 2 1 means 200 ml of resin + 100 ml of hardener

in weight: 100 40 means 100g of resin + 40g of hardener

There are no other ingredients to add.

the mixture must be made extremely accurately with a scale (by weight) or a measuring cup (by volume)
