Epoxy Resin is becoming more and more popular. But what exactly is resin and what is the difference between laminating and casting resin? We explain the differences between the different resins, what they are used for, and which are the best products on the market for your specific projects.
Epoxy resin or resin is a material that can be used for many different purposes and is created by mixing two components that are matched to each other. If the liquid resin is mixed with a suitable hardener, a chemical reaction is set in motion that usually lasts several hours.
After the components have been mixed with each other, not only heat is radiated, but the material is also converted from a liquid to a solid / cured state.
If you look up this topic, you will usually come across the terms epoxy resin, casting resin, laminating resin, or just resin again and again.
Different epoxy resins or casting resins, each with individually different properties, can be used for a variety of different applications according to the manufacturer’s specifications. There is a wide range of different resins, which differ considerably in terms of the duration of the curing process and the hardness and durability of the finished transformed surfaces.
Further parameters for the selection of a specific epoxy resin can be factors such as the maximum layer thickness that can be formed with the material or its heat resistance.
