GreenCast Epoxy Resin
Sicomin SR GreenCast 160 is a cast epoxy resin formulated with highly translucent components with improved UV resistance. It has been developed for the production of foundry objects and decoration requiring a neat finish, prototypes of bottles, Jewelry, Table, Furniture, etc.
This coating resin is preferably used as a casting resin without reinforcements because of its very light color and its curing without cracks. Unlike polyester casting resins, the epoxy resin cures without shrinking (<2%), providing a glossy surface that does not stick. Organic and inorganic preparations and metals are suitable for coating. The objects must be dry and non-porous (risk of bubble if air is trapped in objects).
The very low reactivity makes it possible to cast a high layer thickness without changing the color.
The resin has great clarity and does not create yellowing.
Dry at room temperature, can be annealed if necessary from 40 to 80 ° C.
Very easy mixing and excellent degassing.
Very good UV resistance
Excellent resistance to shock and thermal shock
Pot life (500g / 20 ° C): about 17 hours
(500g / 30 ° C): about 6.2 hours
Mixing ratio :
100: 42 parts by weight of resin: hardener
Calculate the quantity needed:
Width x Height x Length divided by 1000.
Ex: 10cm x 5cm x 100cm = 5000/1000 = 5 Liters
- Impeccable stretch
- without withdrawal
