This is a transparent polyurethane resin from Smooth-on that is best used for the production of transparent parts of mock-ups, prototype products and jewellery casting.
Easy to process, as the two components are to be mixed in 1: 1 %.by volume.
It sticks easily to other polyurethane resins available in our webshop.
It is relative rigid with 72 Shore hardness but still a bit elastic.
Therefore, it can also be used to make moulds in combination with other polyurethane of high-stiffness. To make a mould from this resin is quite useful. The transparency allows that you can observe the resin flow and ensure that the all cavities are filled in with the resin.
An advantage of the transparency is that an exact coloring, the replication of the same color can be standardized
Adding a smaller amount of color can make colorful yet translucent pieces. With this, you can cast jewellery stones in a variety of interesting color effects.
Applying an appropriate vacuuming casting technique you can produce even bubble-free pieces. (Cheap hand vacuum pumps are available in our webshop.)
Compared to epoxy it has the advantage that it hardens faser (in a matter of hours) and so is more productive.
However it does not reach the hardness and scratch resistance of the epoxy. The ornaments and elements keep their original quality only if they are not exposed to frictional impacts.
