Description

Multi-layer application

  • CHEMICAL ADHESION: To allow maximum adhesion, we recommend pouring the successive layers when the product is dry to the touch, but still soft (tacky). Normally, this texture is obtained 36 hours after pouring. * Never pour if the first layer is still liquid*.
  • MECHANICAL ADHESION: If the R-CAST2.0 is dry (more than 84 hours), you need to┬á sand the intial pour (use 120 grit). It is important to “scratch” the surface to ensure a perfect bonding between both layers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my epoxy freeze?
A:Yes and no! UV Resins are very sensitive to freezing, which has the effect of causing crystallization (deposition and solidification of part A). Simply reheat the container in a water bath to bring the resin back to a liquid state. Refer to the technical sheet for more details.


If I poured my  river and I run out of epoxy, can I pour right away?
A:Yes, within 2 hours. After this time, it will be necessary to respect the instructions for application in multiple layers.

What should I use to clean the tools?

A: Xylene

If i bought my epoxy last year, is it still good?

A:The recommended pot life is 1 year after purchase. With time, the hardener oxidizes and turns amber. You will then have to use pigments to hide that amber color.


Will my epoxy harden faster if I put more hardener?

A: No. The ratio must be perfectly respected in a volume ratio of 2A:1B. An improper ratio will cause the epoxy to not fully cure.


After sealing the edges with R-Epoxy (wood sides) , how long should I wait before pouring the R-Cast2.0?

A: You need to wait 24 hours. It is mandatory to sand lightly (grain 120) in order to obtain good bonding.


What is the recommended temperature for casting a river table?

R: 21┬░C, +/- 5 degrees. High temperature could lead to an exothermic reaction (overheating). Low temperature will cause bubbles in the epoxy.


 

Important Notes: Ryver Epoxy is not responsible for any losses incurred as a result of using the product. The use of the product requires several technicalities, it is therefore essential to perform few samll projects before making a large project. Moisture of the wood must be between 8% and 12% (kiln dry). Several factors can influence the final result, it is strongly recommended to refer to someone with experience before starting a first project. In case of an allergic reaction, stop using the product immediately
