The GlassCast 3 Clear Resin & Hardener Kit is a hard-wearing, gloss surface for tabletops, bartops and decorative floor effects. All our kits come with gloves.
This amazing resin is self-levelling and cures to leave a stunningly smooth, glossy surface that requires no flatting, polishing or further finishing – a true ‘pour and leave’ process. If you do need to polish the resin, however, to remove scratches or add a soft radius edge to a cast surface, for example, Glass Cast 3 is very easy to polish using simple abrasive paper and polishing compounds to restore a full gloss.
Special additives in the resin help to expel trapped air after mixing meaning that in most circumstances there is no need to pop bubbles with a torch or heat gun.
The advanced ‘UV’ resistant formulation of Glass Cast means that it has non-yellowing properties far superior to those conventional epoxies meaning that it will start beautiful and stay beautiful for years to come.
GlassCast 3 is ideal as a clear floor resin making it the perfect choice for a resin penny floor or to include other embedded objects. To date, GlassCast 3 has been successfully used for thousands of penny floor projects in the UK and around the world.
Q : My bottles have arrived but they look only half full?
A : Both parts of the material (the resin and the hardener) are in bottles that are much bigger than they really need to be but that is because we have to use special UN approved bottles and packaging for resins and other Dangerous Goods and there are only so many sizes of these available. The weight on the bottle applies to the weight of the contents and the combined weight of the resin (Part A) and the hardener (Part B) equals the total kit weight.
Q : My Resin does not look clear?
A : Its very possible the Resin has got too cold, follow this video instruction to Reverse the Crystallisation and return it to a usable clear state.
Q : How much resin will I need?
A : For solid surfaces, it’s easy to calculate the amount of resin you’ll need to cover a given area. For uneven surfaces or those including embedments like pennies, crushed glass or bottle tops; some compensation will be required.
1kg = 1mm over 1sqm
You will require 1 kilo of resin per millimetre of thickness required over a 1 sqm area. Therefore, to calculate how much resin to mix, simply multiply the thickness you require (in millimetres) by the area of your surface (in square metres). Don’t forget that porous (absorbent) materials like wood should be sealed before the main pour. Typically for a grouted penny floor we would recommend 2mm thickness over the pennies which equates to 2kg per square meter. Other projects the depth may vary.
