Our a+ deep pour epoxy is a clear epoxy resin commonly used for thicker applications like live-edge river table pours, creative table making, wood slabs, woodworking, deep encapsulations, and castings. This epoxy cures crystal clear. 4 gallon kit (3 gallons-part 1, 1 gallon-part 2 equals a 4 gallon kit). This product is a 3:1 mix. You can pour up to 2 deep per individual pour.
Full cure is typically 24-48 hours. These mixing instructions are only recommendations. Please note: larger mixes will cure faster and smaller mixes will cure slower. This resin is only permitted to pour up to 2 deep per individual pour.You can do multiple pours, just make sure to let the first pour gel before adding the next. Make sure to not add more than 4 gallons on 1. (weather alert heat will accelerate the cure and cold weather will slow the cure). This resin is mixed at a 3:1 ratio by volume.
Example (3 cups to 1 cup). If mixing by weight (using a digital scale), mix 100/30 parts by weight (resin/hardner).Make sure to always use mixing cups. Do not mix all together at once (both bottles). When mixing your resin, make sure to use a round disposable container. When mixing, always pour the resin (a) into the hardener (b). Hand stir components for a minimum of 3-5 minutes in a round fashion. Stir slowly to help avoid air bubbles. Make sure to scrape the sides and the bottom of the mixing.
It is very important that the 2 components are properly mixed. If you see swirls or striations in the mix, you will need to mix further. Cold weather can slow this process and the mixture may look milky. Apply immediately to avoid excessive heat and micro bubbles.
After your mixture is complete, pour into river bed. When pouring your resin into your application, pour as close to your piece as possible. Pour in a linear line, so that resin flows from one end to the other. This technique helps avoid bubble entrapment. Please note: cure times will vary depending on mass and temperature.Full cure is typically 24-48 hours, based on a room temperature of 77f. Any polishing or sanding should be done after a full cure (24 hours). Mixing resin can be tricky.
