Material (wood blanks) to be stabilised 5% moisture content or less, depends on. Wood species and thickness, preferably 0%-2%, meanwhile make sure the wood.
Blanks are cool, as the resin will activate on the surface of the wood if it's hot. Personal protection equipment (ppe), including latex or nitrile gloves, eye. Protection, and a respirator mask. A simple step by step description on how to stabilise your material.
Prepare wood blanks (dried and cooled). Estimate the amount of resin needed to perform the stabilisation process, and. Then evenly mix the catalyst and resin according to ratio by weight (2.1 to 1000). And leave it for later use sometimes the catalyst powder dissolves slowly in low.Temperature, in that case move the container to a warmer place. Place blanks in vacuum chamber and weight down.
Add mixed resin ready in step 2, to completely cover the blanks. Apply full vacuum to the chamber, and keep your vacuum pump running until the. Release vacuum, and soak the blanks for at least twice as long as you had them.
Get the wood blanks out. Wrap the soaked wood blanks in foil.
Put the foil-covered blanks in a pre-heated oven for x amount of hours. Get the blanks out of the oven, and remove foil. Allow to cool to room temperature. Store your excess resin for when used next do not store in an air tight glass jar.
Never return left over resin back into the original container, if there is no catalyst. Mixed into the resin in the original container.
