What are the benefits of Bubble Burst?

You might be thinking, "you can just remove bubbles with a gas burner, right?" That's right, you can also remove air bubbles with a gas burner or lighter. So why would you need to use Bubble Burst? Bubble Burst is simply "safer" to use, because when you use a gas torch to remove bubbles, there are some small risks:

1) with a gas burner, you must always be careful not to hold the burner in the same spot for too long. Because if you do, there is a chance of burning the epoxy to the mould. As a result, you can barely get the cured epoxy out of the mould without tearing it apart.

2) With a burner, you run a small risk of overheating the epoxy. This results in a smoking substance that quickly yellows and this will render your epoxy unusable. The chances of this happening are not very high but you still want to avoid this.

Advantages Bubble Burst

  • Easily removes bubbles from epoxy.
  • Does not damage epoxy.
  • Does not affect the properties of epoxy.
  • Powerful and very effective.
  • Leaves no residue.

Disadvatages Bubble Burst

  • May affect pigment colour (especially Alcohol Ink).
  • Only removes air bubbles from the surface (just like a gas burner).

How does RESION Bubble Burst work?

RESION Bubble Burst comes in a small bottle containing 98% isopropyl alcohol (IPA). The bottle is equipped with a spray nozzle, so you can use Bubble Burst very easily. You only have to spray the epoxy resin once or twice and you will immediately see the air bubbles on the surface disappear! Now let the epoxy rest for a few minutes. If there are still air bubbles in the epoxy after spraying, you can reapply the spray. The isopropyl alcohol spray leaves no residue (residue after evaporation) and it does not affect the properties of the epoxy.

You should keep in mind that Bubble Burst may affect the colour of the pigments you use. Especially (Piñata) Alcohol Ink is very sensitive to this. So always make sure you take a test. In addition, Bubble Burst, just like a gas burner, removes air bubbles from the surface. For thick or large castings, we therefore recommend using epoxy with a low viscosity and/or a vacuum chamber.
