Limitations
  • Only somewhat UV resistant so it is best to use it for indoor applications over coloured surfaces. 
  • Not recommended as a clear coat over art due its tendency to discolour. 
  • Only suitable for applications where temperatures will not exceed 60oC.
Application
Mix Part A and B in the following ratio:
  • By Volume: 2A : 1B
  • By Mass: 100A : 42B
Mix thoroughly for 2 minutes. You can apply it as a clear coat or mix in any of our pigment powders or liquid colourants that are suitable for resin (as normal, don't add more than 6% pigment or colourant to the mix). 
After mixing you have approximately 10 minutes to apply the coating. Apply with a brush.
 
Sanding rough objects before coating is recommended and will give a good result with just a single coat. Expect about 4 hours curing time. If you want to paint the coating, sand it to a lower gloss finish and paint. 
After application the coating will self-level without running. 
The brush supplied and recommended for application is a foam brush. Extra foam brushes are easy to purchase and very cheap. 
 
Health and Safety
