Directions for Use:

Step 1: The ideal working temperature is around 77°F. Best  results can be obtained at temperatures between 70°F and 85°F, in a clean, dry, dust-free environment. Avoid working in high humidity. We recommend using this product on a leveled and flat work surface.


Step 2: Using the Laminate Coverage Chart, measure product in accordance with your intended use. Prepare 2 parts Base Resin to 1 part Curing Agent by liquid volume. Pour the Curing Agent first and then the Base Resin into a clean, smooth-sided container large enough to hold all the liquid and allow room for mixing.


Step 3: The material must be mixed thoroughly for at least 3 minutes. Be sure to scrape the container sides, bottom, and corners as you mix. Be careful to not whip excessive air into the mixture. If mixing a gallon, use a power mixer set to “hand speed.” For smaller quantities, use stir sticks. Do not mix more than a gallon.


Step 4: Pour the mixed resin onto the surface and distribute evenly with a squeegee or gloved hand. Continue to pour remaining material to achieve the desired thickness, allowing the resin to flow evenly over the project’s sides. Resin can be poured up to 2” thick per pour.


Step 5: See Additional Information for guidance to help
eliminate bubbles that have risen to the surface of the resin.


Step 6: If you are going to make a second pour, the first pour should still be lightly sticky. Once the second pour is made,   bubbles may once again need to be removed. Material will feel hard after 48 hours, but full cure and maximum
hardness can
require up to 7 days, depending upon the temperature.


· The Water Clear Slow Cast can be poured as much as 2” thick without cracking.


· To remove air bubbles that have risen to the surface of the poured epoxy: use an industrial heat gun. Avoid heating any one spot for too long so as to prevent any distortions in the finished product. 


· This product will work well with wood, glass, ceramic,  stone aggregate, cement, electronic parts and most metals. Do not use over an oil-based stain.


This product may be used to embed or encapsulate items for viewing and display, as long as the items are sealed first. Objects that may be embedded include bugs, small stones, LED lights, electronic parts, or other mementos.


· If you wish to apply paper decals or other objects under the Water Clear Slow Cast surface, those objects need to be bonded to the surface either with Table Top  Epoxy or craft glue.


· Some wood may take the material well in a single coat; however, many types of wood require a seal coat to prevent air bubbles from rising out of the wood and ruining the surface. Older, more porous pieces of wood may contain both air and moisture that  can contaminate the finish. In this case, the user may first paint on a very thin coat of Water Clear Slow Cast, allowing that to set before pouring the new layer.


· If a second coat of Slow Cast is required, apply while the first coat is still lightly sticky. If the first coat has fully hardened, a light sanding is suggested before the recoat.


· One of the best things about this product is the ease with which it can be re-coated after a period of time. Even a well- worn, scratched surface can be lightly sanded and recoated with fresh material to be returned to its original luster.


· This product has excellent UV resistance, but all epoxy products will eventually begin to yellow under sunlight. This includes the curing agent side resin, as well as the finished cured products.


· Clean Up Procedure: Tools can be cleaned with T-12, isopropyl alcohol 99%, or a residue-free cleaner. Do not use soap and water.
