Permakote is a solvent-free two-component epoxy resin with a glass-like crystal finish. It gives a spectacular effect on wood, metal, plastics, ceramics, stone, acrylics...
Preserves photos from yellowing and prevents oxidation of metals. Resistant to water, alcohol, acids and solvents.
Consumption: for a layer of 2 cm with 1 litre (1 L = 1000 cm³), you fill an area of 500 cm² (50x10 cm or 25x20 cm).
For what purpose?
Permakote Epoxy Resin is a transparent casting resin for table tops, counters, bar tops, signs, advertising, plaques, tables, engravings, wood grain photographs, painted surfaces, fabrics...
The tools you will need?
- 1x Foam roller
- 2x measuring pots
- 1x smooth, vertical mixing vessel
- 1x spatula (long enough to reach all corners of the container)
- 1x electric scraper or blowtorch for de-bubbling
Mix one part resin to one part hardener. Ratio of 1:1.
Tip: In order to avoid the incorporation of air bubbles, it is important to mix the resin slowly and gently following the shape of an 8 until the mixture becomes homogeneous. Avoid turning quickly (either manually or mechanically) as this will prevent the formation of a vortex which will introduce a large amount of air.
Curing time and working environment ?
Minimum temperature for working the resin: 21°c.
Permakote epoxy resin gels in 45-50 minutes and becomes hard to the touch in 6 hours. This resin needs 4 days to achieve optimum hardness and quality.
21°c- gel time 40min- Dry to the touch 4/6 hours
27°c- gel time 30min-Dry to the touch 3/5 hours
32°c- gel time 15min- Dry to the touch 2/4 hours
