The Amazing Casting Resin is exothermic, which means it generates heat as it cures. The resin needs this heat to cure properly. If the part is small and or thin and poured into a cold mould, it does not have the ability to generate the heat required to cure fully. So the material will gel and start to cure but not finish because it is lacking the heat necessary to finish curing properly. With your piece in the Amazing Mould Putty mould, simply place it in an oven at 150F or less for an hour or place it under a heat lamp for a couple hours to supply the cast piece some heat in order for it to cure.\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd align=\"right\" valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003ctd valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eIs the Amazing Casting Resin cured piece UV stable?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eNo, like most resin it needs a UV protective coating. The Amazing Casting Resin is Opaque White and will yellow slightly over time if it is exposed to UV light. Clear acrylics or lacquers work well for protecting the resins from changing colour. There are two ways of applying paint to achieve the best adhesion. First paint the mould and allow it to completely dry before casting your resin. As the resin flows into the painted mould, it will chemically bond to the paint as the resin is curing and after the resin cures you will de-mould a perfectly painted part. Painting the mould prior to casting allows you to reproduce perfect detail by painting becoming the outside layer of the actual part rather than cover the exact cast replica with paint that could then cover up fine detail. The other option for painting your part is to paint the part as soon as you remove the cast part from the mould and after you remove any flash while the resin is still curing. Although the resin is de-mouldable, the casting resin is still curing and if painted during the first 5 or 10 minutes of casting the part, the resin will still crosslink with the paint to give you not only a mechanical bond but also a chemical bond between the paint and the cast piece. Paints have built in UV stabilisers which then block out the UV light from ever reaching the casting resin which could affect the colour.\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd align=\"right\" valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003ctd valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eCan I paint the Amazing Casting Resin piece?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eYes! We recommend lacquers or acrylics but you may also use synthetics or enamels. A lacquer primer may be needed to assure the long term effectiveness of the paint. You may wish to paint your silicone mould before casting. Paint the mould with a fast drying acrylic or clear coat. Once it is completely dry, cast your piece. When you de-mould the part you will pull out a painted piece. The Amazing Casting Resin will chemically bond to the dried paint. The other option is to paint the part as soon as it comes out of the mould while the resin is still curing to allow the curing resin to crosslink with the paint.\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd align=\"right\" valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003ctd valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eWhy is my Amazing Casting Resin foaming or bubbling?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eMoisture contamination in urethanes causes foaming. If it foams quite a bit, most likely the moisture is right in the Amazing Casting Resin. The moisture is usually in the A-side. There is not a fool proof method of removing moisture from your system. Typically the B side will crystallise when moisture is present. The A side, however, will not look any different.\n\u003cp data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eMoisture is absorbed through the air and therefore is very important to put the caps back on the bottles as soon as you are done measuring out the amount you need for your next pour. Do not leave the caps off for any extended period of time.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd align=\"right\" valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003ctd valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eCan I put any filler into my Amazing Casting Resin?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eYes. You may use any DRY filler and add it to your A \u0026amp; B before you mix the two equal parts together to achieve different looks, weight, or density to your cast piece. If there is any moisture in your filler, it will make the resin foam or bubble. Therefore, make sure your filler is dry. Examples of types of fillers would be: playground sand, to give you a fine granite or sandstone look. Porcelain, for cold cast porcelain. Aluminium, to add weight.\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003c\/tbody\u003e\n\u003c\/table\u003e","published_at":"2021-02-13T11:50:30+00:00","created_at":"2021-02-13T11:49:32+00:00","vendor":"Vintage Attic Sevenoaks","type":"","tags":[],"price":1895,"price_min":1895,"price_max":1895,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":33334453502029,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Alumilite Amazing Opaque White Casting Resin - 470ml \/ 16 fl. oz.","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":1895,"weight":0,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":11,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/opaquewhite16oz__37859__19912_1612528156_png.jpg?v=1613216974","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/contents_kit.jpg?v=1613216974","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/opaquewhite16oz__37859__19912_1612528156_png_6aabfaed-2757-4b34-b682-894ce6248781.jpg?v=1613216974"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/opaquewhite16oz__37859__19912_1612528156_png.jpg?v=1613216974","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"Alumilite Amazing casting resin available from Approved online retailer and Official UK stockist","id":8525650657357,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":1280,"width":1280,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/opaquewhite16oz__37859__19912_1612528156_png.jpg?v=1613216974"},"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":1280,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/opaquewhite16oz__37859__19912_1612528156_png.jpg?v=1613216974","width":1280},{"alt":"Alumilite Amazing casting resin available from Approved online retailer and Official UK stockist","id":8525650690125,"position":2,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":500,"width":500,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/contents_kit.jpg?v=1613216974"},"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":500,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/contents_kit.jpg?v=1613216974","width":500},{"alt":"Alumilite Amazing casting resin available from Approved online retailer and Official UK stockist","id":8525650722893,"position":3,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":1280,"width":1280,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/opaquewhite16oz__37859__19912_1612528156_png_6aabfaed-2757-4b34-b682-894ce6248781.jpg?v=1613216974"},"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":1280,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0890\/3140\/products\/opaquewhite16oz__37859__19912_1612528156_png_6aabfaed-2757-4b34-b682-894ce6248781.jpg?v=1613216974","width":1280}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch3 data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eThe Amazing Casting Resin is really easy to use.\u003c\/strong\u003e It is a super-fast curing general purpose opaque-white urethane casting resin used for a wide variety of casting applications.

Paints have built in UV stabilisers which then block out the UV light from ever reaching the casting resin which could affect the colour.\u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003ctd align=\"right\" valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e \u003c\/td\u003e\n\u003c\/tr\u003e\n\u003ctr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003ctd valign=\"top\" data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003e\n\u003cstrong data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eCan I paint the Amazing Casting Resin piece?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr data-mce-fragment=\"1\"\u003eYes!

Alumilite Amazing Opaque White Casting Resin - 470ml / 16 fl. oz.



Product Description
£18.95
Maximum quantity available reached.

The Amazing Casting Resin is really easy to use. It is a super-fast curing general purpose opaque-white urethane casting resin used for a wide variety of casting applications. Being opaque white it takes dyes beautifully, giving you vivid bright opaque colours. 

This is a casting resin, so it isn't designed to use in thin coats, like sealing images or filling shallow bezels - if you need a coating resin which cures much slower please see our selection here. 

Its low viscosity and 1:1 mix ratio by weight make the Amazing Casting Resin extremely easy to use.  The cured resin can be painted, stained, dyed, drilled, and carved.

Super fast - it begins to harden in about 3 minutes, and can be de-moulded after about 10 min! You'll see it harden in front of your eyes, the translucent yellow starts to change into an opaque white, it is fascinating to watch. Great if you are impatient! Once cured, it can be painted with acrylic paint, stained, drilled and machined.

Resin must be kept dry and in sealed bottles at all times. 
TOP TIP FOR STORAGE: Keep the caps of each resin bottle on tight at all times. Even during use, pour out what you need, then put the caps back on immediately until your next use. This will keep your resin in good working condition for as long as possible. 

Ensure any moulds or tools are completely dry. Don't use with water based dyes or colours, we recommend our Alumilite Dyes, or powder pigments, like Mica Powder Pigments. **please note - final cured colours will be affected by the opaque white base. For example: a tiny drop of red mixed with the white will produce pink. The more colour you add, the brighter the red will be. For a translucent/transparent finish, look at our Amazing Clear Cast Resin instead.

Approx 470ml (16 fl. oz.) - This resin is also available in larger sizes - 940ml here & 7.5 litres here.

Some questions and answers for our more advanced users:

Why is my cast piece soft?
Typically, the reason your Amazing Casting Resin piece is soft is that the part you poured is small or thin and the resin was poured into a mould that was room temperature or even worse ... cold. The Amazing Casting Resin is exothermic, which means it generates heat as it cures. The resin needs this heat to cure properly. If the part is small and or thin and poured into a cold mould, it does not have the ability to generate the heat required to cure fully. So the material will gel and start to cure but not finish because it is lacking the heat necessary to finish curing properly. With your piece in the Amazing Mould Putty mould, simply place it in an oven at 150F or less for an hour or place it under a heat lamp for a couple hours to supply the cast piece some heat in order for it to cure.
 
Is the Amazing Casting Resin cured piece UV stable?
No, like most resin it needs a UV protective coating. The Amazing Casting Resin is Opaque White and will yellow slightly over time if it is exposed to UV light. Clear acrylics or lacquers work well for protecting the resins from changing colour. There are two ways of applying paint to achieve the best adhesion. First paint the mould and allow it to completely dry before casting your resin. As the resin flows into the painted mould, it will chemically bond to the paint as the resin is curing and after the resin cures you will de-mould a perfectly painted part. Painting the mould prior to casting allows you to reproduce perfect detail by painting becoming the outside layer of the actual part rather than cover the exact cast replica with paint that could then cover up fine detail. The other option for painting your part is to paint the part as soon as you remove the cast part from the mould and after you remove any flash while the resin is still curing. Although the resin is de-mouldable, the casting resin is still curing and if painted during the first 5 or 10 minutes of casting the part, the resin will still crosslink with the paint to give you not only a mechanical bond but also a chemical bond between the paint and the cast piece. Paints have built in UV stabilisers which then block out the UV light from ever reaching the casting resin which could affect the colour.
 
Can I paint the Amazing Casting Resin piece?
Yes! We recommend lacquers or acrylics but you may also use synthetics or enamels. A lacquer primer may be needed to assure the long term effectiveness of the paint. You may wish to paint your silicone mould before casting. Paint the mould with a fast drying acrylic or clear coat. Once it is completely dry, cast your piece. When you de-mould the part you will pull out a painted piece. The Amazing Casting Resin will chemically bond to the dried paint. The other option is to paint the part as soon as it comes out of the mould while the resin is still curing to allow the curing resin to crosslink with the paint.
 
Why is my Amazing Casting Resin foaming or bubbling?
Moisture contamination in urethanes causes foaming. If it foams quite a bit, most likely the moisture is right in the Amazing Casting Resin. The moisture is usually in the A-side. There is not a fool proof method of removing moisture from your system. Typically the B side will crystallise when moisture is present. The A side, however, will not look any different.

Moisture is absorbed through the air and therefore is very important to put the caps back on the bottles as soon as you are done measuring out the amount you need for your next pour. Do not leave the caps off for any extended period of time.

 
Can I put any filler into my Amazing Casting Resin?
Yes. You may use any DRY filler and add it to your A & B before you mix the two equal parts together to achieve different looks, weight, or density to your cast piece. If there is any moisture in your filler, it will make the resin foam or bubble. Therefore, make sure your filler is dry. Examples of types of fillers would be: playground sand, to give you a fine granite or sandstone look. Porcelain, for cold cast porcelain. Aluminium, to add weight.
