This depends on the ambient temperature as well as the resin temperature. When both the resin and room temperatures are around 22 degrees the working time is between 45-60 minutes. The cooler the resin, the longer the working time.

We recommend using either our 1L or 2L Measuring jugs with measurements provided which you can measure equal parts of A and B into before mixing. With a stirrer or scraper begin mixing the resin. Mix for 2-3 minutes ensuring you scrape the walls and the bottom of the cup.
Definitely Not!! Water will not help and only ruin your art. Water-based products are also no good for resin art as water and resin will repel and cause issues when trying to cure.
All of our products come with safety precautions. Safety is extremely important, especially when working with epoxy resins. For more information, Click the FAQ 'HOW DO I USE RESIN?'
We recommend you don't.
Our Systems have been primarily designed for art purposes and do not have the correct properties for using as a kitchen surface/ high wearing surface top.
If you are creating coffee tables, or more decorative tables/ display pieces with low wear and use, then our systems will be fine to use. As they are designed for Art.
Absolutely! We recommend that you allow the initial layer to cure over night before pouring other layers. The possibilities are endless, as are the layers!
Ensure that you store your resins in a cool, dry area. Do not allow for direct sunlight as this will cause the resin to yellow.
The Part B is yellow due to oxidisation of the Hardener. The more air and moisture it is exposed too, the more noticeable the yellowing is. The longer the Part B sits or is left open the quicker the yellowing will occur.
The Resin is still perfectly fine to use, and you will notice that once it is mixed with the Part A, the colour will dilute and be clear.
To delay the yellowing, make sure the resin is away from direct sunlight and kept in a dark dry area, with the lids tightened.
This depends on the ambient temperature. After the resin has gelled it generally takes 9-10 hours before the resin is touch dry at room temperature. The warmer the room the faster the cure time. However, the longer you leave the resin, the better the curation.
No. As each resin is formulated differently, it is best to avoid mixing different resins together. By mixing resins together, you make get dimples, webbing or tacky spots throughout the art due to a reaction or lack thereof between different brands. However, applying separate layers of resin on a piece of art is completely ok.
This can be caused by a number of outcomes. Generally, this occurs in certain resins. Sometimes when the proper reaction has not occurred or the resin is not properly mixed this can cause issues in the art. Using a heat gun or flame too close to the resin, especially during the gelling time can also cause ripples and dimples. If you are using alcohol inks and don’t cover the ink with resin, this will also cause dimples in the artwork.
Resin can remain tacky for a couple of reasons:
Bad mixing or incorrect ratios. If your resin was not mixed thoroughly or the resin to hardener ratio was off, this will cause your resin to remain tacky.
The amount of colours you choose for a piece is completely up to you. However, the amount of colour to resin ratio should be no more than 10%. Ideally, 2-5% of colour to resin for the best results.
If you are using moulds and want a clear pour, you are best to use our U RESIN Cast system. This system has been designed to be poured in 15-20mm thickness with crystal clear clarity.
Colours can also be added to these pours.
Our Flex UV, Standard, Standard UV, & Thick UV have all been designed as flat surface art coatings and will become cloudy, the thicker the pour.
