EP2551 Clear Low-viscosity Casting Resin

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: EP2551 is a reactive polymer system made of an epoxy resin and a hardener. EP2551 is 100% reactive and contains no solvents. EP2551 features convenient 50/50 mix ratio, non-blushing, excellent color and clarity, low viscosity and is self-leveling. EP2551 has been specially formulated for maximum air release. These features all combine to produce striking results of high gloss, mirror-like finish when applied to wood, ceramic, plaster, metals, etc. EP2551 can be used anywhere a high gloss and brilliant shine is required. Reinforcing with fillers or fiberglass fabric widens acceptable applications to include boat covering etc. Due to its semi-clear appearance, this epoxy system can be combined with Eager Plastics transparent dyes or opaque pigments to color match for your project.

APPLICATIONS: This is a versatile epoxy system that has been used in a number of technical and hobbyist fields. When used with fiberglass cloth, it can be used in the building of cedar strip or wooden canoes (because it is realtively clear, the wood can be seen through the epoxy). Also used for coating jewelry; coating fishing lures; coating all types of wood; bonding glass, metals and wood; achieving a "water-like" appearance for artwork or school projects; car repair; furniture repair and coating. Its semi-clear optical properties allow it to be a color-match epoxy.

Recommended mix ratio is 1 part A with 1 part B by volume. This provides a 10 to 15 minute pot life, and a 1 to 2 day cure time. Pot life and cure time will vary depending on temperature, humidity and thickness of application.
