EP8033 Urethane Casting Resin


GENERAL DESCRIPTION:  EP 8036 is a two-component casting urethane primarily formulated for the manufacture of non-structural or decorative items. EP 8033 provides the following outstanding features:

 

                (1)           Extremely low viscosity (Water-thin)

                (2)           Convenient 1:1 mix ratio by volume

                (3)           Rapid set time for high productivity

                (4)           Odorless cure      

                (5)           Excellent reproduction of even the finest detail

                (6)           Pleasing light-cream color 

                (7)           Can be painted, stained and finished

                (8)           Tough, break-resistant character                     

 

Recommended mix ratio is 50 parts of A with 50 parts of B, by volume. This provides a 3 minute pot life, and a 10 to 20 minute cure time. Pot life and cure time will vary depending on temperature, humidity and casting thickness. Urethanes are extremely water sensitive: The slightest moisture that comes into contact with either part A, part B or the curing mixture could may cause incomplete curing and/or foaming. Take the necessary precautions (close the caps on containers tightly; do not blow on curing resin; make sure mold is dry prior to casting).  

 

The resultant room temperature cured plastic has these properties:

 

                                Specific Gravity                                    1.04

                                Hardness (Durometer)                         76 D

                                Tensile Strength                                   3,000 psi

                                Elongation                                             10%

                                Shrinkage                                              Negligible

                                Heat Resistance                                   160°F

                                Viscosity                                               75 cps

 

EP8036 is available in the following sizes:

 

                                2 Pint Kit                                2 lb
