Liquid Art Ultra UV™ Epoxy Resin
Liquid Art Ultra UV™ is a two part epoxy resin system formulated for creating and coating works of art. Liquid Art Ultra UV is our most popular product amongst users coating stainless steel tumblers for the long working time, excellent UV resistance, and high-gloss finish.
Liquid Art Ultra UV contains our Ultra UV™ inhibitors to protect the epoxy resin from harmful UV rays that can damage and cause eventual yellowing to your project. Liquid Art Ultra UV™ has shown up to 10 times longer lasting clarity in comparison to Liquid Art™ and similar competitors products when tested in a simulated UV testing machine.
This product does not require a UV light to cure.

Step 1. Prepare for Mixing
Gather your epoxy resin, mixing supplies, and personal protective equipment. We recommend at the very least using nitrile gloves, safety glasses, clothing to protect from spills. Be sure to use epoxy resin in a well-ventilated room or use an air-purifying respirator.
Step 2. Pour Epoxy Resin into a Mixing Container
After determining the amount of epoxy resin you will need, measure your desired amount of epoxy resin at a 1:1 ratio by volume into a graduated mixing cup. Pour the resin first, allow it a moment to settle, and then follow up with an equal amount of hardener.
For best results mix a minimum of 2 fluid ounces (60ml) of epoxy resin and hardener.

Step 3. Mix Thoroughly for Four Minutes
Mix the two parts together for a total of four minutes. Be sure to scrape the bottom and sides of the container while mixing so that there is no un-mixed epoxy resin. Aggressive mixing can introduce excessive air, stir slowly but thoroughly. Continue to stir until the epoxy resin no longer has ribbons and returns to clear.
Step 4. Apply to Surface
Apply the epoxy resin to your surface immediately after mixing. You can do this by using your gloved hand, a foam roller, a brush, a trowel, and so many other tools! Make sure that epoxy resin completely covers the surface before moving to the next step. If you do not apply enough epoxy resin it may pull away from the edge. If you apply too much epoxy resin it can drip off or run to one end depending on the surface.
Step 5. Use a Torch or Heat Gun to Remove Trapped Air
Quickly sweep a propane torch or heat gun across the surface being sure to keep the flame 6-8 inches away from the surface. Do not overheat the epoxy resin or hold the heat in one spot for too long. We recommend heating the epoxy resin only during the working time, do not apply heat once the working time has passed. After eliminating bubbles allow the epoxy resin time to cure in the appropriate environment (listed in Technical Data below).
Ensure that you are working in a well-ventilated room or using an air-purifying respirator.

Love this resin before using KSresin I was having issues with it repelling from spray paint and now i no linger have that issues. Great product.
Love this resin. We use it for multiple products that require heat resistance and UV protection. Leaves our projects looking beautiful!
I have used several brands of epoxy and this by far is the most shiny, bubble free, easy to put on and cures beautifully resin. I highly recommend it and their other brands!
I use to resin canvases. Flawless!
This stuff is great! Very easy to mix.
Easy to use and manipulate. Holds colors well Cures firm.
I couldn’t find a resin that I could just work with too well until I came across KS RESIN. Once I found it completely changed the way I was able to do My art work. So easy to work with compared to other brands I used, and by far my most favorite & my #1 go to. Check them out, you won’t regret it.
So clear best one I’ve used
I have tried many different brands of epoxy and when I want the perfect shine and an epoxy that is easy to work with this is my go to! Great shine, long working time, and definitely makes the glitter underneath sparkle
I wanted to try a new resin for my small tumbler business. After some research I decided to try KS Resin. Needless to say I am upset I didn’t try it sooner. I haven’t had one issue with this product.
