HEALTH OF MIND RIVER CAST is a clear casting epoxy system designed for deep casting applications, including river tables, casting, and embedding. RIVER CAST is a low viscosity, low exotherm epoxy with superior air release and minimal shrinkage. 

Colour: Clear liquid Pot life: ~3 hours
Cured time: 48 – 72 hours (volume and temperature dependent)
Cure to maximum strength: 7 days

 

Mixed viscosity: Water like 
Shore D hardness ((at 20 oC): 80-85 Colour Stability: Low yellowing (will darken on UV exposure)

Cover working area with cardboard or plastic. The surface to be coated should be dry and free of contaminants. For best results, apply at temperatures between 19-20 DEGREES and  below 70% humidity. Air bubbles may form on the surface. Air bubble release is greatly enhanced by use of a heat gun or gas torch. Care should be taken to avoid over heating in one spot – sweep the heat gun continuously across the surface for a few seconds. The mixed product should be cured in a warm, dust free area, and should be covered with a box

PLEASE NOTE DEEP CASTING RESINS ARE VERY MUCH CONDITIONS DEPENDANT , TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENTS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS . DO NOT POUR LARGE VOLUMES OF THIS RESIN AND LARGE DEPTHS IF YOU HAVE NOT PREPARED YOUR ENVIRONMENT AND ARE USING IT IN THE RIGHT CONDITIONS . 2 LAYERED POURS ARE ENCOURAGED IF YOU CAN NOT GET TO THE RECOMMENDED CONDITIONS. DO NOT PUSH THE BOUNDARIES WITH A THERMOSETTING POLYMER , ALWAYS ASK FOR ADVICE IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE LARGER POURS.

The resin can be tinted with HEALTH OF MIND pigments to achieve a vibrant finish.
