Crystal Clear™ resins are formulated for specific ranges in casting thickness.
Crystal Clear™ 206 is a water white clear and made specifically for applications that require clarity. These rigid urethane casting resins differ only in working and demold times. Low viscosity ensures easy mixing and pouring. Crystal Clear™ resins cure at room temperature* with negligible shrinkage.
CAUTION: NOT FOR HOME USE. THIS PRODUCT IS FOR INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY. With adequate local exhaust ventilation, respiratory protection is not normally required when using this product. Where risk assessment shows air-purifying respirators are appropriate, follow OSHA respirator regulations and European Standards EN 141, 143 and 371. Protective clothing (gloves and long sleeves) is required to minimize the risk of dermal sensitization. If breathing is affected or a dermal rash develops, immediately cease using this product and seek medical attention. Read SDS before using.
Cured castings are:
Vibrant colors and color effects are achieved by adding pigment dispersions.
Safety - Store and use at room temperature (73°F/23°C). These products have a limited shelf life and should be used as soon as possible. Environmental humidity should be as low as possible. Good room size ventilation is essential. Wear safety glasses, long sleeves and rubber gloves to minimize contamination risk. Wearing a NIOSH approved respirator will minimize inhalation of residual fumes. Use in a low humidity environment (below 50% RH). Mixing containers should have straight sides and a flat bottom. Mixing sticks should be flat and stiff with defined edges for scraping the sides and bottom of your mixing container.
Selecting A Mold Rubber - Pour into a urethane rubber mold (Vytaflex™ urethane – release agent required), tin cured silicone mold (Mold Max™ silicone) or Mold Star™ 15, 16 or 30 platinum cured silicone (not Mold Star™ T Series). Do not use other rubber mold products.
If using Mold Max™ silicone; to prevent cure inhibition, post-cure newly cured silicone mold for 8 hours at 150° F / 60° C and let cool prior to casting resin. If you are unsure about surface compatibility, a small scale trial casting should be made.
For Best Results Before Pouring Crystal Clear™ Into Mold: Pre-heat rubber mold at 212°F / 100°C for 4 hours. This will minimize chances of fish-eyeing, suck back, corner rounding, large bubbles, etc. in finished casting.
Casting Thickness & Cure Time - The cure time and ultimate shrinkage of all Crystal Clear™ products will vary depending on mass concentration, thickness of the casting, mold configuration, etc. For example, a 200 gram mass of Crystal Clear™ 200 will cure faster if left to cure in a conical vessel (cup) versus a casting dispersed as a thin sheet measuring 3 centimeters square by 1 mm thick. This is due to the heat generated by the concentration of material in the cup versus heat that is dissipated from the sheet casting. Castings will resist yellowing when exposed to UV, but may darken over time.
MEASURING & MIXING...
Liquid urethanes are moisture sensitive and will absorb atmospheric moisture. Mixing tools and containers should be clean and made of metal or plastic. Materials should be stored and used in a warm environment (73°F/23°C). Stir or shake Part B thoroughly before dispensing.
Measuring - Materials should be stored and used at room temperature (73°F / 23°C). The proper mixing ratio is 100A:90B by weight. You must use an accurate digital gram scale to weigh Parts A and B properly. Do not use an analog scale or attempt to measure components by volume. Dispense the required amount of Part A into a mixing container. Weigh out the appropriate amount of Part B and combine with Part A.
Mixing - Mix SLOWLY, but thoroughly, for at least 90 seconds making sure that you scrape the sides and bottom of your container several times. If coloring or filling Crystal Clear™ product, add filler or pigment dispersi
