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