All epoxy resins are not created equally, and many systems work best for certain projects. It is easy to get confused by the names of products and slight differences that can make your project go from great to a headache. While there are general use epoxy resins that work okay for many things, it is always best to pick the epoxy resin system that will work best for your specific project. In the epoxy resin world you will find products that cure at room temperature or that require a heated environment to cure, 1:1 ratios, 3:1 ratios, blue resin, yellow resin, clear resin, slow-cure systems, fast-cure systems, and so many more. Our goal at KSRESIN is to provide high quality epoxy resin systems that are easy to use and provide consistent results.
The best way of choosing an epoxy resin system to work with is understand the limitations of certain products.
Do you plan on pouring epoxy resin to create river tables? These generally require a deep pour casting resin such as Liquid Cast Deep Pour that will minimize the amount of heat that is generated during curing and allow you to pour thicker layers in one go.
Maybe you want to pour epoxy resin into silicone molds to create coasters, keychains, dog tags, book marks, etc.? A deep pour casting resin isn't going to work for this system, but you will want to find a low / medium viscosity epoxy resin system that allows air to escape while still curing nice and hard such as Liquid Art.
What if I just want to coat a surface? You will want to find a coating epoxy resin system such as Liquid Art or Liquid Stone that cures hard, glossy, ultra-clear, and is easy to use.
