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.
