AC Coating Crystal Art resin is a ratio of 1:1 by volume resin systems (1:1- resin: hardener by volume or 16 Resin to 100 hardeners by weight). Measuring and mixtures must be accurate to achieve the best results; Do not change the ratio; otherwise, the resin cannot cure correctly and lower the resin’s physical properties.
AC Resin Coating Crystal Art has a standard pot life of 60 minutes. Recommended to use the resin within one year after opening bottles; stored away from direct sunlight and kept in a cool, dry environment.
It takes up to 24 hours for it to cure, also depending on the thickness. Coating Crystal Art can be poured as a thin surface coating of 2-3mm and layered to provide depth or a specific artistic design. The ideal temperature should be 22-25ºC, with a humidity level below 70%.
Below are the estimated curing times at specific ambient temperatures: 25 Degrees = 6-9 hours
40 Degrees = 3-5 hours
60 Degrees = 1-2 hours
90 Degrees = <1 hour
Any temperatures lower than 25 degrees will require more than 9 hours for curing time. The warmer the resin, the faster the gel and curing time will be.
If the room and resin are above general room temperature, the gel time can be under 45 minutes. At room temperature, you have 45-60 minutes of working time before it begins to gel.
