How to use polyester casting resin

Polyester casting resin is easy to apply. To influence the processing time, you can vary with a hardener between 1% and 3%. Dilute the quantity of hardener depending on temperature and quantity of resin. As a guideline, we use 2%. This gives this polyester casting resin a processing time of about 20 minutes. 

TIP: make a quantity you can process within 10 minutes.

Polyester hardener

When buying the casting resin, you need to order along a hardener for polyester casting resin (MEKP). If you order 5 kg or more and you add hardener to your shopping cart, we will add a special dispenser + cap free of charge, with which you can easily determine the correct quantity of hardener. The table below indicates the quantity of hardener to order.

1 kg 20 grams of hardener

Below is an overview of the hardener required per quantity of polyester casting resin, broken down according to the thickness of the object to be cast. We do not recommend using this product as a coating or for layers thinner than 1 centimetre. See the datasheet for more detailed information.
