Liquid Art™ & Liquid Art Ultra UV™ Instructions


INFORMATION
Be sure to visit our website and read through the Frequently Asked Questions
section before using our products. You can also reach out to us if you have any
questions.


BEFORE MIXING
Liquid Art™ Epoxy Resin should be used in a room where the humidity is under
50%, and the temperature is 65-80° when pouring. When the humidity is over 50%
a dehumidifier should be used in the room where the pouring and curing is taking
place. You can set the Resin in hot water for 10 minutes to have a thinner mixture;
this will also help cause less trapped air in the mixture. Be careful to not get any
water into the epoxy. Temperatures below 65°F will cause the curing process to be
slower.


CALCULATE REQUIRED EPOXY
Measure the surface area (length x width) of what you will be coating. Times the
number of your surface area by 3 to get the total ounces you will need per coat of
epoxy resin. You may want to add extra if you plan to use multiple color additives.
Example: 2’ long x 4’ width = 8 x 3oz = 24 ounces of epoxy resin required (12 ounces
of Hardener, 12 ounces of Resin)


MEASURING
Starting with the hardener, pour 1 part of hardener to 1 part of resin into a
graduated cup/bucket. Be sure to measure the EXACT amount of each part or you
could have issues with your mixture. Do NOT add more hardener than resin, this
doesn’t make the final product harder and will create issues. Do NOT guess or try to
estimate your measurements. Inaccurate measurements will result in soft or sticky
spots on surfaces.


MIXING
In a clean container, mix the measured resin and hardener with a paint mixing stick.
Mix slowly for 2 minutes (use a timer), scrape the sides and bottoms with a
paint stick, and continue to mix for an additional 2 minutes using a timer. Mixing slowly

will help ensure that you are not introducing too much air into the mixture. Large
amounts of mixture may require additional mixing time.


POURING
After the epoxy resin has been mixed thoroughly, immediately pour the mixture
onto your desired surface. Do NOT leave the mixture in your container, as it will -
begin to get very hot and decrease your working time.


SPREADING
The epoxy resin can be spread with a 1/8” trowel, paint brash, foam brush, or foam
roller. Be sure to sufficiently cover all areas of your surface. Use your gloved hand or
a paint brush to brush the epoxy resin on to the sides of your project. The epoxy
resin will self-level and drip down the sides.


COLORING
There are many different pigments that can be used to tint the epoxy resin such as
latex spray paints, mica powders, oil-based paints, etc. Colors can be mixed into the
epoxy resin (after being fully mixed), or sprayed on to the surface of the epoxy resin
while still in liquid form. There are many techniques available online.


TORCHING
Once you are satisfied with the design of your epoxy resin, you can use a propane
torch to remove the trapped air from the epoxy. Hold the torch 6 inches away from
the surface and sweep quickly across the surface until the bubbles disappear. Wait
approximately 5 minutes and repeat that process. Be sure to not torch during the
curing process or you may cause waves in the surface.


CURING
For best results, the room temperature should be between 65-80°F (Liquid Art™)
with the humidity levels under 50%. The coated item will need to cure for several
days in a dust free room. 12-24 Hours after initial pour your epoxy will be dry to
touch. After 3 days in the recommended environment, your epoxy will be fully cured
and ready to use.


CLEANING
Always have a plastic sheet over the work area you are using. Once the epoxy has
cured, you will be able to pull the cured epoxy off the plastic sheet and dispose of it.
If you need to clean up spilled epoxy while it is still in a liquid state, you can use
acetone. Once the epoxy has cured you will need to remove it by sanding or using a
paint stripper.

LIQUID CAST™ PRODUCT INSTRUCTIONS

Liquid Cast™ Instructions


INFORMATION
Be sure to visit our website and read through the Frequently Asked Questions
section before using our products. You can also reach out to us if you have any
questions. Liquid Cast™ is a slow curing casting epoxy that has advanced air release
technology to reduce air bubbles in your castings.


BEFORE MIXING
Liquid Cast™ Epoxy Resin should be used in a room where the humidity is under
50%, and the temperature is 65-80° when pouring. When the humidity is over 50%
a dehumidifier should be used in the room where the pouring and curing is taking
place.


CALCULATE REQUIRED EPOXY
RECTANGLE – Length (inches) x Width (inches) x Height (inches) x 0.6 = Ounces
required


Example Rectangle Mold – 4” x 8” x 1”:
4” Length x 8” Width x 1” Height = 32 x 0.6 = 19.2 Ounces required

 


CYLINDER - Radius² (inches) x 3.14 x Height (inches) x 0.6 = Ounces required


Example Cylindrical Mold – 12” Round x 1.5 Height:
6” (radius) x 6” (radius) = 36 x 3.14 = 113.04 x 1.5 (height) = 169.56 x 0.6 = 101.74

Ounces required
Radius = Half of diameter. In our example the diameter of the mold is 12” making
the radius 6”.


MEASURING
Starting with the hardener, pour 1 part of hardener to 1 part of resin into a
graduated cup/bucket. Be sure to measure the EXACT amount of each part or you
could have issues with your mixture. Do NOT add more hardener than resin, this
doesn’t make the final product harder and will create issues. Do NOT guess or try to
estimate your measurements. Inaccurate measurements will result in soft or sticky
spots on surfaces.


MIXING

epoxy resin (after being fully mixed), or sprayed on to the surface of the epoxy resin
while still in liquid form. There are many techniques available online.


POURING
After the epoxy resin has been mixed thoroughly, pour the mixture into your desired
mold. Do NOT leave the mixture in your container, as it may begin to heat up and
start the curing process.


TORCHING
Once you are satisfied with the design of your epoxy resin, you can use a propane
torch to remove the trapped air from the epoxy. Hold the torch 6 inches away from
the surface and sweep quickly across the surface until the bubbles disappear. Wait
approximately 5 minutes and repeat that process. Be sure to not torch during the
curing process or you may cause waves in the surface. Do not over torch as you can
burn the epoxy.


CURING
For best results, the room temperature should be between 65-80°F (Liquid Cast™)
with the humidity levels under 50%. The coated item will need to cure for several
days in a dust free room. 12-24 Hours after initial pour your epoxy will be dry to
touch. After 7* days in the recommended environment, your epoxy will be fully
cured and ready to use.
*Depending on the depth and volume of your pour, curing times may be longer.


CLEANING
Always have a plastic sheet over the work area you are using. Once the epoxy has
cured, you will be able to pull the cured epoxy off the plastic sheet and dispose of it.
If you need to clean up spilled epoxy while it is still in a liquid state, you can use
acetone. Once the epoxy has cured you will need to remove it by sanding or using a

PIGMENT PASTE INSTRUCTIONS

Pigment Paste Instructions

Pigment Pastes are used as a colorant additive for your epoxy resin mixture. You can use a popsicle stick, plastic spoon, or something similar to dip into the pigment paste and then mix into the epoxy resin. A little goes a long way, so be sure not to add too much. Start small, and continue to add until you are satisfied with your overall color.

Pigment Pastes do not contain a catalyst and must only be used with epoxy resin.

KSRESIN does not guarantee results with Pigment Pastes when being used with another companies epoxy resin products. Though you will find most similar products are compatible. You are responsible for testing their application on your own.

Do not ingest.

Keep away from children.

DISPENSING PUMP INSTRUCTIONS

Dispensing Pump Instructions


Dispensing pumps are an excellent way of measuring your epoxy resin. All pumps come in pairs, one for Resin and one for Hardener.

 

It is important to mark each pump if you plan to reuse them, this will ensure that you do not mix up resin and hardener.

 

Pumps may need to be trimmed to fit the bottles. Why? Our dispensing pumps are manufactured for multiple bottle sizes, simply trimming the dip tube with scissors will allow the pump to sit properly in your bottle size.

 

We recommend pumping out all liquid after use, or placing a cup underneath the spout of the dispensing pump for any drips.

 

If you are experiencing cloudiness or micro-bubbles you need to warm up your resin and hardener before use. This can easily be done in a hot water bath for 10-15 minutes, be sure that the lids are tightly sealed. You can also use a space heater, but be sure to not overheat the product.

 

Do not force the pump up, allow it to pull the epoxy resin up itself with the spring.
