3KG Kit Epoxy Resin 2:1 mix ratio
Mopa Crafts 2:1 epoxy resin is the professional choice for embedding botanicals and deep casting. It has no solvents, is cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, and is safe for home use (when the instructions are followed). Designed for pouring into deep silicone moulds, this beautiful and UV stable casting resin can also be used for making river tables, crystal clear jewellery, homewares, woodturning, paperweights, filling knots in wood, and model making.
Reasons why our 2:1 EPOXY RESIN IS THE RIGHT RESIN FOR YOU:
2:1 Ratio Mix Instructions:
Pour 2 parts resin and 1 hardener by weight into two cups and then pour those two cups into a third mixing cup. It is extremely important that you mix thoroughly in this cup, making sure you scrape the sides and the bottom of the cup as you stir. Mix for 3-5 minutes or until there are no streaks left in the resin (5-10 minutes in winter). To eliminate the risk of soft spots pour you mixed resin into a new cup and stir for another 20-30 seconds. This eliminates the risk of unmixed resin from the sides or bottom of the first cup from causing soft spots (Please do it!!)
IMPORTANT: When using the Mopa Crafts Epoxy Resin 2:1 fill voids in multiple layers with a maximum depth of 2”-4” (50-100mm) per layer
Allow each layer to cure for at least 8h (do not pour deeper as the resin/hardener mixture may overheat and discolour)
Please allow 72 hours to cure (after 36h the resin will start to thicken and only 72h is safe to touch)
For best result allow the Mopa Crafts Epoxy Resin to self-degas.
Excessive degassing can overheat the resin/hardener mixture, which may result in discoloration.
This is a 2:1 by weight ratio mix of Epoxy Resin. ALWAYS MEASURE!!!!
Do not vary the 2 to 1 ratio for any reason!
Failure to measure precisely will result in sticky or soft castings.
Warning: Never use an electric drill with a mixing attachment to mix this product. This type of mixing will almost always result in an incomplete and cloudy mix.
