POLYMÈRES TECHNOLOGIES has formulated casting systems suitable for casting of different masses and thicknesses. Each one have a specific purpose.
How much resin do I need?
Use the calculator to work out approximately how much resin you will need for your resin river table project.
Due to the irregular shape of waney edge timber, it is not possible to calculate exactly how much resin you will require but the calculator below will give you a ‘best guess’. We suggest allowing a little extra, just to be sure.
If the product is poured in thickness and mass less than recommended, the polymerization process will be much slower, due to a reduced exothermic effect.
If the product is poured in thickness and mass higher than recommended, phenomena of yellowing, accentuated shrinkage, and cracks will appear, and this, due to an amplified exothermic effect.
It is therefore important to choose the appropriate system for a specific application. We strongly recommend performing validation tests before proceeding with your project. It is imperative to validate your measurement techniques for parts A and B, of the homogeneous mixture of the latest as well as the achievement of total polymerization.
