We suggest a fully controlled environment if casting in these conditions. • If timber and similar objects are being embedded, it is suggested that they should be pre-sealed. • Although EPOXYCAST is intended primarily for small-medium size pours, it is also used for smaller articles as the extended “fluid time” before gelling allows for air-release. This is ideal if the user does not have a vacuum unit, however it must be noted that in smaller items the cure time can easily be up to a minimum of 48hrs. • If the materials have been stored at temperatures below 15ºC for a prolonged period, ensure to condition the Part A material at 25-30ºC to reduce viscosity and assist in air release. The material can be cast at lower temperatures, but the user should be aware of viscosity changes at lower temperatures. • This resin and hardener combination have been formulated with the objective of being as safe as possible, however, in common with most epoxy resins and hardeners, skin contact with uncured materials may cause irritation of sensitive skins. For this reason, contact with the uncured materials must be avoided at all times. • Ensure that mixing & casting is performed in a well-ventilated area as some vapors may be released during cure. • Please refer to the Materials Safety Data Sheet for more information. Storage Store the components in a dry place at 18 - 25 oC, in tightly sealed original containers. It is suggested to purge moisture from the Part A containers with F720 Dry Air Spray prior to resealing the lid after use.
