UltraCast XT is an optically clear epoxy coating/casting resin, it is solvent free with excellent UV resistance & surface heat resistance up to 90 – 95°C (194F – 203F)
UltraCast XT resin produces a high gloss, flexible and tough coating with good impact and abrasion resistance. The excellent optical clarity and viscosity makes it ideal for the following applications:
Sealing and coating of artwork/paintings made with acrylic paint, oil paint & watercolour paints
Sculptures and mould castings (up to 1000cc in volume)
Tabletops, bar counters and kitchen worktops
Penny floor and pigmented epoxy floor applications
Please be aware that if tints are used with UltraCast XT there is a chance colours could bleed into one another if poured next to each other, as the formula has a longer working time and is thinner than MasterCast art resin.
This resin system needs 7-10 days to reach maximum cured properties and temperature resistance. The addition of pigments (inks, powders and pastes) as well as other resin additives (Resi-BLAST, silicone, lubricants, alcohol or solvents) will lower its temperature resistance, this is because pigment substances themselves have a very low temperature threshold.
The higher the addition rate of pigments & additives which are added or mixed into UltraCast XT the more the thermal withstand of the cured mass is lowered and compromised. In this case, we recommend a final clear topcoat of UltraCast XT is applied on top of the pigmented layer to bolster its resistance against hot objects placed on it.
