This thixotropic agent can be used to thicken epoxy resins. This way, the already mixed epoxy casting resin can be converted into a viscous cream-like material.
The benefits of the thixotropic state:
- The resin will also be applicable to vertical surfaces in a relatively thick layer.
- This can save you material because you don't have to cast the model around with thick wall.
- You save time and effort as well because you do not need to build bounderies.
Although this material makes the transparent epoxy resin white, loosing its transparency, it still can be very useful for certain purposes.
