ECO Resin

After lots of research and development we are very pleased with our new resin and the fact that it is so environmentally friendly.

CHEMSET® Eco Resin is a lightly fragranced, solvent-free, non-toxic, easy to use, versatile epoxy resin that can be used to produce top quality domed and enamelled items.

CHEMSET® Eco Resin is made using epoxy constituents manufactured in a pioneering manufacturing facility that utilises by-products from other chemical manufacturing processes carried out on the same site to produce its top quality epoxy resins. Containing more than 35% less environmentally hazardous epoxy ingredients than other doming and enamelling resins currently on the market, CHEMSET® Eco Resin is a truly innovative product that provides both a reduced carbon footprint and reduced environmental impact compared to other products that can be used for the same purpose.

CHEMSET® Eco Resin gives the same high quality finish as our other enamelling resin systems enabling it to be used to enhance the appearance of an ever growing range of products.

This resin has a storage life of at least 1 year if kept in closed, damp-proof containers, out of sunlight, at temperatures between 15 and 25C.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE CURED SYSTEM

When CHEMSET® Eco Resin is properly mixed and cured using our recommendations it is completely inert and free from active toxic substances. It contains no solvent or other volatile material and is not flammable at normal temperatures.

Being almost colourless, when properly proportioned and cured, CHEMSET® Eco Resin has a water-like clarity and a bright shiny surface that is both hardwearing and scratch resistant.

CHEMSET® Eco Resin has good chemical resistance enabling items made with it to withstand dry cleaning solvents when used to make clothing accessories.

CHEMSET Eco Resin can be coloured by the addition of up to 5% by weight of any CHEMSET® Epoxy Colour Paste, which must be added to the resin and mixed in before proportioning. These colour pastes contain low concentrations of the same epoxy resin as is used in the manufacture of CHEMSET Eco Resin giving two advantages over other colouring products. Firstly, the colour paste reacts 100% into the cured epoxy and secondly its use maintains the environmentally friendly nature of the resin material. They also contain no solvents or other volatile materials.

    Could I use this for jewellery casting? Some eco resins are too soft. I have a jewellery business and wondered how tough it would be. I am looking for an eco resin. Thanks

      Hello Tessa,
      Yes, our Eco resin is ideal for jewellery casting. Not only is it tough it is also scratch-resistant.

    Hi, Would this eco resin be suitable for casting to depths of around 10mm, across c.A4 sized panels? The only other eco resins I’ve found seem to only be suitable for laminating/infusion and not casting, so this would be great if so! What is the cost and how would I go about getting hold of some? Thanks.

    Reply
    • Bright Enterprises

      Hello Laurent, yes, you could use the eco resin for casting to this depth but you would need to build it up in layers to avoid it getting too hot during the curing process.
      Please email us your contact details or give us a call and we can answer all of your questions.

    Hi

    I also have a jewellery business and am really interested in your new product
    I used polyester and Epoxy resin for years and then switched to BioResin for the past 6 years. It is unreliable as a product and at the moment I am having to order in a very protracted way from a company in France.
    Could you possible send me a sample and the spec sheets…? I use mostly silicone moulds. I don’t want to go back to working with something as toxic as the polymer resins I used previously but am eager to find a new supplier/material. I need to have a look at how well it could handle my existing jewellery range….does it use a vacuum chamber? (I have one) How is the yellowing? Does the top layer cure or have to be removed? Thank you in advance for your help.

    Many thanks

      Hello Daisy,
      Thank you for your interest in the CHEMSET Eco Enamelling Resin. We will email a product information sheet to you and send you a sample to try.
      To answer your specific questions:
      Whether or not you need to use a vacuum chamber will depend on the complexity of your moulds and whether you are able to mix without adding in too much air.
      All epoxies will yellow over time. Provided you follow our recommendations for mixing and curing you will find ours will yellow less than most.
      Yes, provided you follow our instructions and mix it properly it will all cure!

    Does this product become waterproof when set/hardened? Looking for a non-poisonous resin to use in food environments such as filling small holes in plastic/acrylic sinks.

    Reply
    • Bright Enterprises

      Hello Timothy, yes, the resin is waterproof once fully cured. Our resins are also inert when proportioned, mixed and fully cured according to our recommendations and instructions.
      You will need to test the bond of the resin with your plastic/acrylic sinks but you should not have a problem if you have roughed the surface first to make a ‘key’ for it to stick to. The surface also needs to be clean and dry otherwise the resin will stick to the dirt/water rather than the surface of the sink!

    Hi there, is there a limit to how large a volume can I cast with this resin? I understand that I would need to do this in stages due to the heat reaction of casting resin. I work for a product design company that has a particular regard for sustainability.
    Could you also tell me what other sustainable products you make? Thanks

    Reply
    • Bright Enterprises

      Hello Emily, we would not suggest anything larger than the size of a house brick and you could even get discolouration or an exotherm using this much. It would be better if you could do the casting in layers, which would not need to fully cure between each layer.
      All of our products are produced in the most sustainable way possible. They are manufactured by ourselves in Kent and we take as much care as we can to produce products that are safe and environmentally friendly.

    Hi I’m a jeweller and I’m currently experimenting with casting resin in combination with other materials so shrinkage and clarity or especially important. Would it be possible to obtain a sample and data sheet please? So far I’ve been using a polyester resin but if I could get good results with an eco resin I’d be delighted.
    Many thanks Annie McNeely

      Hello Annie,
      Epoxies do not shrink very much but it is a problem with polyesters.
      Our Eco resin has good clarity for casting but the Super Glaze resin has excellent clarity and may be better. However, this will depend on the size of your castings and what you are putting into them.
      We will send a data sheet to you by email as a pdf.

    I paint. Poured acrylics. I want to use free flow paints mixed with Epoxy resin and silicone to produce paintings in a ‘poured art’ method. Also to give a hard sealed clear surface to canvas paintings eyc.

      Hello Rod, we produce a range of epoxies here in Kent and one of them we call Piccture Glaze. This resin can be used in the same way as Art Resin. It is new this year and has received some very good reviews. Apart from this our Eco resin could be used but it has a much higher viscosity and therefore may produce what we call ‘fish eyes’ if poured over a large surface. This happens because the surface tension of the resin pulls it together.

    Hi, I’m a knife maker, currently using standard epoxy to fit my handles. I’m trying to stay as environmentally friendly as possible and use reclaimed materials for much of my work. I have kept away from materials such as G10, micarta and stabilised wood as I worry about the cost on the environment. Is your product suitable for lamination and for use in wood stabilisation? Also is it waterproof. I’d live a sample to try.
    Thanks

      Hello Matt, yes, our products are suitable for laminating and for wood stabilisation; they are waterproof when cured too. You will have to make sure that the wood is totally dry and we would recommend that you seal it with the epoxy first as well.

    Hello
    I design jewellery with embedded scenes,but I have developed (after 10 years!) a skin allergy to epoxy resin ( Ice Resin,Gedeo and Liquid Diamonds)

    It is very difficult making delicate things wearing 3 pairs of gloves!!!

    I sthere any difference in your resin which would make it less likely to cause allergic reaction?

    Reply
    • Bright Enterprises

      We’re sorry to hear that you have developed an allergy to the epoxy materials. You say it is the resin that you are allergic to, do you know this or do you mean the system?
      All epoxy resins are made with Bisphenol A; if you develop an allergy to this you will not be able to use any epoxy product. However, if it is the hardener component that you react to then we may be able to find you an alternative.
      We have known several people who have developed an allergy to Bisphenol A and, unfortunately, it is not something that can be overcome. Let us have your response to the above and we will advise further.

    Hi, l am an artist usually working in a range of mediums. I recently started to experiment with pouring resin mixed with acrylic paint and inks to create images. Unfortunately, l had a very bad reaction to the epoxy resin l was using, in spite of it claiming to be non to ice and safe. I would very much like to continue exploring this style of art but obviously am very concerned about environmental issues and my own health reactions. Would it be possible to use your resin in this manner and if so, l wonder whether it might be possible for you to send me a a sample please? Many thanks.

      We’re sorry to hear of your allergic reaction to the epoxy resin you have been using; this is not an uncommon reaction. Unfortunately, if you are allergic to epoxy resin it will not matter which epoxy resin you use nor which brand. We are happy to send you a sample of our resin to try in case it is not the resin, but another ingredient in the system you have been using, that is causing the problem.

So sorry I didn’t explain properly, I am looking to try your eco resin – I already use your regular resin which is great, but I’m trying to make my business ‘greener’ in any way I can, so this would be fantastic as resin is obviously usually not very environmentally friendly. I’ve bought the regular stuff from Cooksons before, but don’t see the eco resin in their shop.

      Thank you for your message about our Eco resin. Yes it will be fine for you to use for a chair seat and will be strong enough without any problem. We’re not quite sure what you mean about its suitability for use with paper though. You will be able to add paper and it will mix in with the resin fine, if it is ordinary paper it may go see through if it is coated paper it will not and will stay looking the same.
