Polycraft Translux D150 water clear epoxy casting resin system, this is a water simulation product and is suitable for floral casting and embedding, it also allows an object to be placed in the middle of the resin without any contact with the walls, with a successive casting to totally encapsulate object, this resin will produce a water clear resin.
Floral Crystal Clear Casting
Floral Vase Water Look
Object Embedding (Various items such as stones, coins and even insects)
Good UV Stability
Self Degassing, Self Levelling
Long Pot Life and Cure Times For Good Air Release
Low And Progressive Curing Process To Reduce The Stress
Please refer to the information and technical datasheet for diagrams of the Shore hardness ratios.
Firm 100/75 is recommended for floral castings, or embedding flowers in a vase for a natural water effect, the firm will level out better to give that water look.

Epoxy pigments are the recommended system to colour this resin however the polyester range of pigments will also work.
Polyester Pigments - Standard Range
Polyester Pigments - Metallic Range
Polyester Pigment - Transparent Range
Please read the Technical and Safety Datasheets prior to use.
We recommend small scale testing to ensure compatibility before using at full scale.
For best results ensure resins and moulds are at temperature above 20°C before using, using at colder temperatures will effect cured characteristics and may inhibit cure. Ensure moulds are free from dust and other contaminants. Always perform small test before pouring large amounts to ensure suitability. Keep containers closed when not in use. When stored correctly unopened product has a shelf life of 3 months from purchase. Please refer to technical datasheets for further information regarding usage.
Hot Weather Notice
Large masses of resin can easily overheat and fracture in hot weather, this can be particularly apparent when casting into insulative materials such are wood. We therefore advise testing and we stress that customers perform initial tests to ensure suitability for their project and requirements prior to up-scaling to full project. Low casting depths and / or additional equipment to cool the resin may be required, In general for large mass casting temperatures would be around 15°c to 20°c with considerations of cooling fans or similar to help regulate the heat of the pour to avoid overheating of the resin system.
