UV Poxy

You can pour the next layer after the previous pour has gone through its heat cycle, which is usually around 24 hours. The rule of thumb is if you can make a imprint with your finger nail in the epoxy you can pour again and the epoxy will chemically bond to the previous layer. If you’ve passed that point, sand the surface of the previous layer with a high grit sand paper (180-220 grit). This creates a rough surface for the next layer of epoxy to stick to. Once sanded, clean the surface with an alcohol based cleaner like de-natured alcohol to remove all the dust from sanding. After that, you’re good to pour!

The best way to speed up the cure is by adding heat to the area that your project is in. Every 8C can cut the cure time in half. If the epoxy is heated too much, though, it can cure too quickly and may crack or bubble excessively.

Hardeners tend to amber over time when exposed to sunlight, air, or humidity. This doesn’t affect the cure or performance of the product. Only the appearance is affected.

The white or crystallized product may form when resin sits for a prolonged period of time or if it freezes. To remove the crystallization, simply heat the resin to about 120F for an hour or two. This should bring it back to a clear state.

Liquid Plastic requires no extra attention to get rid of air bubbles because it releases them on its own due to its long cure time and low viscosity. If you’re pouring over a surface that may release air during the 3-day curing process then those bubbles may get trapped and ruin your crystal-clear look. A sealer coat is advisable in this case.

UVPoxy is a much thicker and faster curing epoxy, which requires extra attention to bubbles. A torch or heat gun is advisable for popping any surface bubbles, and slow mixing/folding of the product helps to avoid excess air entrapment in the batch. Using a pressure pot works well for all our products.

Possible causes are:

  1. Low temperature. The epoxy will need more time to cure if your room temperature is lower than the recommended range. Applying heat to the project will help it finish curing.
  2. Off-ratio mixing. There may have been too much or too little hardener, which directly affects the cure time of the batch.
  3. Insufficient mixing. You may not have mixed long enough for the resin and hardener to be adequately mixed for a proper cure. Always mix thoroughly for a minimum of 3 minutes.
  4. Incorrect resin or hardener. Using UVPoxy resin or hardener with Liquid Plastic resin or hardener will cause under curing, overreacting, or other adverse effects to the batch.

Our products are rated with similar heat resistance to any on the market. No epoxies are heat proof or fireproof so leaving a hot pan or item on the surface will leave a visible mark.

For a sealer coat, you can get 100 sq. ft. out of a 4L Kit and 50 sq. ft. for a flood coat. Warming up the resin will allow you to get extra coverage out of your kit.

Here are some helpful tips for getting that perfectly smooth finish:

  1. If you are applying to wood, a sealer coat is highly recommended as wood is porous.
  2. Warm up the resin slightly to increase flow and to improve mixing and air release.
  3. After evenly applying UVPoxy, use a torch or heat gun to pop all bubbles that form for the first hour after pouring.
  4. Work in a dust-free environment or cover your piece with a tarp once finished to keep particles from landing on your surface.

To become a retailer, you need to have a retail location that is open to the public at least Monday to Friday. You need to purchase and maintain a certain volume of product. For more information, please fill out the contact form, and we will provide you with more details.

We only sell to manufacturers (OEM) or our retailers. You can purchase from your local retailer or find one who sells EcoPoxy online. For manufacturer discounts, please fill out the contact form and request pricing.

Our wood finishing products like UVPoxy and Liquid Plastic are crystal clear once cured. Color can be added with liquid or metallic pigments.

EcoPoxy products do not need finishes. They naturally cure to a high gloss. For a matte finish, you simply sand the surface with 3,000-grit sandpaper. Most oil based finishes should adhere to the epoxy or at least form a film overtop, which can clear it out after sanding. The optimal grit for most finishes is 320 or higher. Proven brands like Osmo, Rubio, and Odie’s oils/waxes have been used with great success by many customers.

No, not yet, but we are working hard toward that. However, we do have some products that exceed 70% bio content.

Our epoxies will not stick to mold-release compounds that are designed for use with epoxy. The smooth side of packing tape, wax paper, tuck tape, and similar smooth surfaces are ideal for creating a non-stick surface.

Smooth-On makes for great mold-making products.

Categories: Liquid Plastic, UV Poxy

For best results, we recommend you use EcoPoxy pigments with EcoPoxy resins. There are other pigments that are also compatible with our products, but they have a lower concentration. Do your own testing, and go with what works for you.

If stored in a cool dry environment and in sealed containers, our solvent-free products have a near-unlimited shelf life. If the material is more than a year old, you should do a small test to make sure it still performs as expected.

UVPoxy is designed for thin coatings and filling small cracks. It should be used for applications no thicker than a quarter inch. It has a much shorter pot life, which can be as short as 10 to 15 minutes. In contrast, Liquid Plastic is a casting epoxy designed for encapsulation and casting. It has a 3-day cure time and can be poured to any thickness. Liquid Plastic has a semi-flexible finish that is plastic like once cured, as opposed to UVPoxy, which has a harder and more of a scratch-resistant finish.

  4. Incorrect resin or hardener. Using UVPoxy resin or hardener with Liquid Plastic resin or hardener will cause under curing, overreacting, or other adverse effects to the batch.

Our products are rated with similar heat resistance to any on the market. No epoxies are heat proof or fireproof so leaving a hot pan or item on the surface will leave a visible mark.

For a sealer coat, you can get 100 sq. ft. out of a 4L Kit and 50 sq. ft. for a flood coat. Warming up the resin will allow you to get extra coverage out of your kit.

Here are some helpful tips for getting that perfectly smooth finish:

  1. If you are applying to wood, a sealer coat is highly recommended as wood is porous.
  2. Warm up the resin slightly to increase flow and to improve mixing and air release.
  3. After evenly applying UVPoxy, use a torch or heat gun to pop all bubbles that form for the first hour after pouring.
  4. Work in a dust-free environment or cover your piece with a tarp once finished to keep particles from landing on your surface.

EcoPoxy products do not need finishes. They naturally cure to a high gloss. For a matte finish, you simply sand the surface with 3,000-grit sandpaper. Most oil based finishes should adhere to the epoxy or at least form a film overtop, which can clear it out after sanding. The optimal grit for most finishes is 320 or higher. Proven brands like Osmo, Rubio, and Odie’s oils/waxes have been used with great success by many customers.

No, not yet, but we are working hard toward that. However, we do have some products that exceed 70% bio content.

Our epoxies will not stick to mold-release compounds that are designed for use with epoxy. The smooth side of packing tape, wax paper, tuck tape, and similar smooth surfaces are ideal for creating a non-stick surface.

Smooth-On makes for great mold-making products.

For best results, we recommend you use EcoPoxy pigments with EcoPoxy resins. There are other pigments that are also compatible with our products, but they have a lower concentration. Do your own testing, and go with what works for you.

If stored in a cool dry environment and in sealed containers, our solvent-free products have a near-unlimited shelf life. If the material is more than a year old, you should do a small test to make sure it still performs as expected.

UVPoxy is designed for thin coatings and filling small cracks. It should be used for applications no thicker than a quarter inch. It has a much shorter pot life, which can be as short as 10 to 15 minutes. In contrast, Liquid Plastic is a casting epoxy designed for encapsulation and casting. It has a 3-day cure time and can be poured to any thickness. Liquid Plastic has a semi-flexible finish that is plastic like once cured, as opposed to UVPoxy, which has a harder and more of a scratch-resistant finish.
