EPODEX Clear Epoxy Resin & Transparent Drop-ins
EPODEX epoxy resin is ideal for a variety of applications. From construction, through electrical engineering and furniture coating. Coat your floors, tabletops and other items. Seal pictures or make your own jewelry. No matter your project, we can help you achieve it. Our epoxy resin systems are miscible with all our colors. Application examples can be foand in the gallery.
Instructions for Use
- Always start with an epoxy resin primer to avoid high material loss and blistering (layer thickness: approx. 1/64″ mm). To do so, simply use a portion of the same clear epoxy resin. Mix resin A-component with hardener B-component. You can find the right mixing ratio in our information table under the the info button “Learn more” on this page.
- Stir through the edge and bottom of the mixing cup as material will settle there. Ideally, pour into a clean mixing cup and mix again until the mixture is streak-free. This ensures that the resin A-component and hardener B-component are completely mixed together.
- Pour the resin-hardener mixture onto the surface to be coated immediately after mixing, as the product may boil in the mixing cup depending on the system and the amount of substance.
- Paint the primer with a paint roller or brush on the desired surface. We recommend rollers made of polyamide.
- Let the primer cure. The curing time varies depending on the temperature, layer thickness and epoxy resin kit. Please refer to our information table under the the info button “Learn more” which can be found on this page.
- Continue with the main coating in the same way. Processing times, pouring heights and curing times vary depending on the epoxy resin kit selected and the application. You can find more detailed information in our information table under the the info button “Learn more” on this page.
Info: Epoxy resin is sensitive to any kind of moisture during curing (risk of amine blush formation, i.e. white patches in the top layer). For this reason, we recommend that you avoid any contact between water and the epoxy until it has cured completely. For thin layers, cold temperatures (ambient, substrate, and resin temperatures below 70°F) and increased humidity, the time until the epoxy resin is fully cured may be extended.
