Mixing

By weight: 100 + 40, By volume 2 + 1
Note: 
The mixing ratio must be accurately followed, it is not possible to change the ratio as this would result in lower mechanical properties and the resin not drying properly. Pour the required amount of hardener and resin into a large container and stir for 3-5 minutes until the components are completely mixed. Epoxy systems heat up much faster in a pot than as a thin film, so it is important to pour immediately, mix only what is needed within the 40 minute pot life

 

Application

The product can be applied by hand pouring or by brush/roller. The resin can be tinted using polymer pigments in solid and translucent colours. The product generates exotherm when mixed in larger volumes, and becomes unusable very quickly so we recommend that small amounts are mixed initially (2 kg), and once you are more confident and understand the product, amounts can be increased to a maximum of 7 kg at a time.

Level
Ensure your piece is perfectly flat and level,  therwise the resin will run to the lowest point and “pool” in the centre, leaving too little resin at the corners. On large canvas paintings / pictures you should tighten the canvas as much as possible or place a board underneath to support it uniformly.
Bubbles
Any bubbles created by hand-mixing can be easily popped by using a sharp object or by passing warm air over the surface of the resin (e.g using a blowtorch or hot air dryer on slow speed setting).
Blowtorch
Don’t hold the blowtorch or hot air blower closer than 30 cm to your artwork otherwise you risk creating ripples and dimples in the resin finish.
Dust
You will need to protect the area from dust accumulation for at least 12-24hrs, try to avoid cross draughts while the area is drying.
