BIO-BASED GLAZING RESIN
- Two component epoxy resin system: 40% bio-based resin** and hardener (**biobased carbon represents on average 40% of the total carbon present in the resin)
- Transparent, bright and solid
- Mixing: 1 part Glazing hardener B to 2 parts Glazing resin A
- Resin: a coloured brightener is added to optimise the resin's long-term transparency. Once set, the (pink) hue disappears.
- Casting thickness: up to 0.5 cm thick
- Setting time: Dry: 1.5 hours / Fully set: 6h
- Cleaning the tools before setting: With a dry cloth (brushes, splatters, spatulas) and 70% alcohol (commercially available) or alcohol gel.
- Maintenance: In their original packaging, fully sealed, and stored at between 15° C and 25° C. Keep away from freezing temperatures. 6 months in the sealed bottle after opening.
The resin is ideal for glazing by giving a relief and magnifying effect to flat surfaces such as photos, postcards, canvases, frames etc.
Media: Multi-surfaces: Metal, painted wood, canvas, non-porous paper, silicone, plastic...
1. Make sure your work surface is horizontal and grab a timer.
2. In a clean, dry container, first pour 1 measurement of glazing hardener B and then 2 doses of glazing resin A. Trigger the stopwatch.
3. Mix the two components well into the corners of the container (an incomplete mixing will not guarantee a cure, while mixing too vigorously will create bubbles). Decant the mixture into a second container and mix again to ensure homogeneity of the resin and an optimal mix. Mixing time can take up to 5 minutes depending on the amount prepared.
4. The total time you spend mixing and waiting before casting must not be more than 10 minutes. Pour the whole prepared mixture on the medium of your choice.
5. Leave to dry for 6 hours, away from dust. Adhesion is progressive and may vary depending on room temperature.
- Protect your work surface with plastic.
- The mixture is homogeneous when it becomes transparent.
- To calculate the amount of Glazing Resin you need to cover a surface with a 1 mm layer:
1) Estimate the area to be covered in cm²
2) Divide the result by 10, which will give a casting resin thickness of 1 mm 3) The result determines the quantity of resin (in ml) you need to prepare For a 2 mm thick layer, multiply the first result by 2 (or divide the area obtained.
- If necessary, ease the product onto the edges with a spatula
- We advise you to protect your creations by applying a layer of Bindex gloss 24 hours before casting the Bio-based Glazing Resin.
- Avoid contact with eyes and skin, wear gloves.
- Do not mix the components of Bio-based Glazing Resin with other components of the Gédéo resins range.
- Gédéo resins are not intended to come into contact with food, plants, insects....
- Do not exceed 300ml of glazing resin mixture in order to limit any risk of overheating.
- Make sure your mould is clean and entirely free of oils before casting (if necessary, wipe over with a cloth soaked in alcohol)
- Resin creations, even when dry, cannot withstand contact with water.
