Clear Epoxy Resin is currently used in a variety of applications ranging from coating metals, fabrics, concrete and wood.
Epoxy Seal Coat resin was specifically designed as a coating resin for indoor applications. It has good flexibility and ultra low moisture absorption when cured.
Typical Clear Epoxy Artistic Applications - used as a clear sealing resin for art objects, sealing of paintings and murals, finishing and glazing of plaster, brick and stone objects.
Where NOT to use these Epoxy Resins -
1. Where a crystal clear (water white) finish is required, especially outdoors.
2. In any workshop where the humidity and temperature cannot be maintained throughout mixing and curing - minimum temperature recommended 15C, maximum humidity recommended 65%RH.
1. Epoxies have a slight natural Amber colour. This is only really obvious when used in multiple coats or thick layers. This colour can increase with long term exposure to UV light, so outdoor use can cause a strong colour change over time.
2. Epoxies slow down during curing as the temperature falls: epoxy curing stops at 5C. High humidity may cause condensation to form on the surface leaving a white or opaque finish.

Epoxy Seal Coating Resin - technical
Room temperature (20C) cured, long working life, clear resin, slight yellowing characteristics when cast in thicknesses over 5mm, low viscosity, semi-rigid, excellent moisture resistance, excellent adhesion to most substrates.
Recommended temperature range (- 40) to + 130 degrees C based on a static environment subjected to a gradual rise and fall from an external temperature source. Please check with our Technical Department before specifying epoxy seal coat or primer resin.
UV stability - not for outdoor use where a clear finish is required. Epoxies may turn yellow/orange after prolonged exposure to UV light.
Epoxy Resin Characteristics - uncured resin is NOT reactive to moisture vapour and will not bubble on damp surfaces. However, a drop in temperature (say, overnight) during initial curing, may cause condensation to form, leading to 'milky patches.
Handling Caution - mixing - air entrapment may cause air bubbles in the finished product. Ask for technical advice before proceeding.
Mixing Techniques - use dry mixing vessels and double mix: that is, mix A with B in one clean vessel, then transfer the mixture to a second clean vessel and mix again. This prevents uncured resin from being left on the surface of the final pour, which would then always remain sticky.
