River table epoxy features a 3:1 mixing ratio and can be used indoors without ventilation or bulky respiration equipment.
Each epoxy kit includes 3 resin (part a) and a hardener (part b). Excellent for embedding as well as castings where typically micro-bubbles and heat are an issue. At a glance review of river table epoxy resin.Consistent viscosity at 150cps (pours like water). Pot life of 240 minutes (minimum 150 grams). Acid, chemical, & moisture resistant. Rigid, blush-free, high gloss finish. Cures like a rock - hardness shore - durometer scale d-88.
Each kit includes 3 gallons of part a-side resin and 1 gallon of part b-side hardener. Warning to all epoxy resin users.
Epoxy resin mixtures generates heat: please read (2 minutes to save days). Do not mix everything at once. When mixing epoxy resin, a chemical reaction occurs. This exothermic reaction creates heat.The more you mix together the more chemical reaction occurs (more heat). Be sure you are ready to pour out the mixture prior to actually mixing. Do not leave a large volume of freshly mixed epoxy resin inside a bucket unattended for more than 3-5 minutes. One 4-gallon kit mixed and layed out in a 1" - 2" setting is ideal. One 8-gallon kit mixed and layed out in a 1 setting is manageable too.
12 gallons kits should not be poured in one setting unless layed out quickly in an 1 below setting. Deeper settings can create too much heat with possible cracking. Proper prepping for the river table epoxy resin project. Ie: have your river table secured, taped off, caulked off, silicone off to prevent the leakages. There will be no time to prepare after you mix.
Advanced users commonly use melamine wood forms, tyvek tape and silicone caulking to prep their areas. This prepping should also include how to support of your design. Are planning on extending epoxy resin off an edge of a slab of wood without any under supports please consider under table supports to help maintain the level appearance of the table. When epoxy resin is under heat (165'f-175'f) direct/indirect sunlight, the table epoxy can heat up and begin to sag if not properly supported. Seal anything porous objects with a flood coat.Porous material may absorb your epoxy resin which will throw off your calculations and can create uneven surfaces. Applying resin on wood or other porous objects is not an exact science. Some applications may require more seal coats because older wood and more porous projects typically absorb more resin. Working environment and material temperature prepping.
All materials and working environmental conditions should be maintained at a constant 65 -75 degree fahrenheit. A rise or decline in either the temperature of the room or the epoxy resin will have an adverse effect.Epoxy resin is temperature sensitive. Colder epoxy resin is thicker and sets slower. Warmer epoxy resin is thinner and sets faster. If your room or the epoxy resin is above 75 degrees fahrenheit it will become too hot. This high level of chemical reactive heat can cause yellowing, shrinking & cracking.
Please prepare and make your calculations prior to mixing resin and hardener together. You must know the volume of epoxy you plan to pour. If you pour too much epoxy into a particular void, it may result in overheating. Overheating can create shrinking, yellowing or cracking.Especially for larger pours, you can reduce the risk of the epoxy resin overheating by utilizing a work fan. This is mostly important when working conditions are above 80 degrees. Keep in mind your ideal working temperature of the material and the environment is between 65 - 75 degrees fahrenheit. Mix thoroughly for three (3) minutes and transfer to a clean secondary mixing container and mix again for proper results. Pour at temperatures between 65f- 75f with low humidity in a dust-free environment. Allow 12-24 hours between pouring additional layers. Wait 3 days for a full cure and up to 30 days for a full hard cure (thickness and temperature dependent).
If a lot of weight (material) is free formed / live edge, it is advised to wait for a full 30 days before removing the flat supporting surface from the cured project. This will prevent unwanted sagging if the product is not completely cured.
Max casting thickness can vary depending on a number of factors including shop temp, material temp, mixing quantity, mold material, project dimensions, etc. Larger slabs should be poured thinner than smaller castings to minimize exotherm. Do not exceed 2 casting thickness on general river table pours. Pouring in half inch intervals and torching in between to remove any surface bubbles. In some situations where the pour is wide enough, you can exceed 2 but we recommend keeping it under 2 for best results.Exceeding 8-gallons in one batch pour is not ideal for beginners. We recommend one 4-gallon kit mixed and poured flat in a 1" - 2" setting. Yes, deeper is possible in one pour, but please have experience and understanding of the heat that will be created from large volume chemical reaction.
I have uncured spots on my river table project, how do i fix this. This is a common mistake due to lack of mixing. The mix must of had a stream or small amount of hardener that was pulled in from the edge of the bucket. This is common and can be prevented by scraping the edges thoroughly.Next step is the remove the uncured spot after the rest of the project cured. Clean it off, sand it again and repour. I mistakenly poured this epoxy resin at a 2:1 ratio instead of 3:1 ratio mix. Yes it will still harden. It will just take a little longer than typical.
Allow another few days for the full cure. If still sticky (uncured) in spots, you likely have a mix issue and may need to refer to the uncured spots question/answer above.
