Chill Clear™

Transparent epoxy resin for layers up to 1/2″

Description

CHILL CLEAR™ is an epoxy system with 100% reactive materials with a very low viscosity and high resistance to ultraviolet . CHILL CLEAR™ allows the cast up to 0.5 inches thick to cast transparent pieces such as jewelery, coasters, painting, flood coat, countertops or as topcoat on river tables.

Its pot life of 60 minutes allows a fast handling time. Its very low viscosity allows maximum infiltration of the interstices in the moulds or the different substrates on which CHILL CLEAR™ is poured.

This system also meets the European RoHS standard.

Characteristics

  • High quality raw materials
  • Easy mixing ration of 2A/1B by volume
  • Excellent UV resistance
  • Glossy Finish
  • Excellent impact resistance
  • Very low viscosity
  • Crystal clear transparency
  • Meet the RoHS standard
  • No withdrawal
  • 100% solid, without VOC

Applications

Store CHILL CLEAR™ on a pallet (do not store directly on the floor) or shelf @ 22 °C with relative humidity less than 60%. A cold environment will increase the viscosity of each part A and B and a warmer environment will decrease it.

Before using CHILL CLEAR™, be sure to mix each Part A and B. Minimize air formation as much as possible by gently mixing for a minimum of 5 to 10 minutes with a metal spatula.

Mix exactly 2 parts of A with 1 part of B by volume (or 100 A / 42 B by weight) and make sure to mix evenly, making sure to scrape the edges and the bottom of your container.

Since the pot life of the system is 60 minutes @ 22 ° C for a mass of 200 grams, be sure not to mix more material that can be applied within the life time pot. It is important to note that the pot life time will be shortened in a warmer environment and will be lengthened in a cooler environment.

The handling time will reflect the temperature level. Also, the greater the amount of resins to be mixed, the shorter the pot life time will be.

Uncured material can be easily cleaned using isopropyl alcohol or T-901 solvent.

  • Products

    The CHILL CLEAR™ is a very polyvalent system used for many applications.

    This fast setting epoxy with 60 min of pot life can be used to cast up to ½ inch thick, to cast transparent layers such as countertops or as topcoat on river tables.

    With 60 minutes of pot life and its very low viscosity the CHILL CLEAR™ will offer maximum infiltration of the interstices in the molds or the different substrates on which CHILL CLEAR™ is poured. It is frequently use to fill inlays, CNC logo, maps and letters.
