Epoxy River Table what epoxy should I use?
In order to choose the CHILL EPOXY™ product for river table flows to use for your application, here are the important basic chemical concepts that you need to understand and consider: It is important to understand that during the reactivity of parts A and B, what is called an EXOTHERMIC effect develops, that is to say that there will be a release of heat which manifests itself, which will the system to go from a liquid state to a solid state. The larger the mass, the more the exothermic effect will manifest. POLYMÈRES TECHNOLOGIES has formulated casting systems suitable for the casting of different masses and thicknesses.
CHILL ICE 1™ – POURS BETWEEN 1/2 UP TO 1.5″ INCH UP TO 60 LITERS MASS
CHILL ICE 2™ – POURS BETWEEN 1.5 UP TO 2″ UP TO 60 LITERS MASS
CHILL DEEP POUR™ – POURS BETWEEN 2″ UP TO 2.5″ INCH UP TO 100 LITERS MASS
When poured in thickness and mass less than recommended, the polymerization process will be slow down considerably, due to a reduced exothermic effect. If 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 OF PARTS A AND B, OF THE HOMOGENEOUS MIXTURE OF THE LATEST AS WELL AS THE ACHIEVEMENT OF TOTAL POLYMERIZATION.
NEVER PROCESS THE PRODUCT (S) WITHOUT PRIOR VALIDATION OF YOUR WORKING TECHNIQUES. IF YOU DO NOT VALIDATE THESE MATTERS, THIS MAY RESULT IN HIGH LOSSES.
