MOST FRQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Temperature is one way to control the cure time. Cure Time will lengthen in lower temperatures, and higher temperatures will speed up cure time. The optimal temperature is  70*f

Adding anything to Resin will change it’s chemical properties. I recommend following the 6% rule. Anything more than 10% total add-in is considered at high risk for your project to not cure.

Yes, take these steps for mechanical bonding. Step 1) Rough up the surface by lightly sanding cured epoxy with low grit 220 paper, this way the new layer has something to grip on to Step 2) Wipe clean with alcohol to remove and dust, oils and finger prints then dry. Ready

There is actually more than 1 proper answer here. It can depend on your project.

Pouring a 2nd layer before layer 1 is semi-hard to the touch, but not yet fully cured will reactivate layer 1. This is technically a chemical bond. Which is truly the best way to pour layers.

However, maybe your project needs to have separate well defined layers. Like a blue layer sandwiched between 2 clear layers. I recommend waiting for a full cure between layers. This is where you would need a mechanical bond

I would recommend the Ice Thin for a Topcoat. ICEthin makes a beautiful top coat. It can be poured as a thin layer all the way on up to a 1″ depth. Ice thins ability to magnify objects works amazing and will give the appearance of added depth.

ICE Cast works best in pours over 1″ in depth

Every epoxy is different. Always follow the Manufacture recommendation wich is found in the product TDS sheets. Pouring your epoxy deeper will most likely lead to over heating, cracking and shrinking

Recommended Depth for ICEThin is up to 1″ and for the ICECast is 1″ to 4″.  Note this needs adjusting if you pour a large space.

Sealing a pourous surface before pouring your 1st layer is an important step if you want to have the best possible outcome will prevent out gasing (bubbles) and saves your pour from being sucked into cracks and holes of your pourous surface.
