Entropy Clear Casting Slow Hardener

Entropy Clear Casting Slow Hardener (CCS) produces a low exotherm, long pot life reaction when mixed with Entropy Clear Casting Epoxy Resin (CCR). The high clarity and slow cure speed allows for bulk or high-build castings desirable for jewelry, furniture, and bar top or tabletop projects.

Clear Casting Resin (CCR) features low color, excellent air release, and UV stabilizer technology. The result is crystal clear products with excellent color stability.

Use CCR Resin with CCS slow hardener at a 2:1 mix ratio for large castings greater than 1 inch thick. Combined resin and hardener have a bio-content greater than 30%, and can be modified with epoxy compatible colorants and fillers.

Safety and Handling Information

Despite the natural derivation of Entropy resin products, exposure to these materials represents hazards typical of all epoxy resins. Exposure should be minimized and avoided through the use of proper personal protective clothing & equipment, and appropriate manufacturing controls. All persons who use, store, or transport these materials should understand proper handling precautions and recommendations, as stated in the SDS (safety data sheets).

Overall, excellent!

Very clear, minimal bubbles. One small batch did not cure, but it may have been a contaminated mixing cup. All other batches cured beautifully. Had to exchange slow cure hardener for "fast" cure, as I did not know the pot life/cure times at the time of purchase. I'm not known for my patience, but "fast" is pretty slow compared to other epoxies I've used. Check the manufacturers website for details.
