Versatile

Harness a broad range of projects with Alumi-UV resin, guaranteeing a perfect finish for each distinctive creation.


🤔 What sets UV resin from epoxy resin?

🌟 UV resin solidifies under ultraviolet light and is ideal for precise crafts such as fishing lures. On the flip side, epoxy resin hardens with a hardener and offers versatility, making it perfect for crafting larger, rugged items like coasters and trays.

🍯 why isn't my uv resin curing correctly ?

There could be several reasons: using unsuitable molds (like large, deep, or opaque ones), wrong pigments (some pigments aren't compatible with UV resin), insufficient UV light exposure, or overloading with pigment or glitter, hindering the light penetration.

🤯 How do i prevent surfaces from becoming tacky or sticky?

Incomplete curing often occurs due to improper handling. Make sure to adhere to the recommended guidelines for mixing and measuring, and utilize a suitable UV light source. Additionally, if the surface remains sticky, consider applying and curing a thin clear layer of UV resin for a solid finish.

🫧 What leads to bubbles and how can they be prevented?

Bubbles may arise from overly vigorous stirring or excessively thick resin. Stir the resin gently and allow it to settle before curing to enable bubbles to ascend. Additionally, employing a heat gun can effectively eliminate surface bubbles.

🩹 How do i fix warping in my uv resin projects?

Warping can occur from uneven curing, excessive shrinkage, improper mold handling, insufficient UV light exposure, or low-grade resin. Ensure uniform UV light exposure, steer clear of excessive heat, and opt for top-notch resin. Experiment with relocating the light farther from the resin to moderate curing and diminish heat.

🛡 Do I need to cure both sides of my resin project?

Yes, particularly for larger projects. This assures a truly complete cure in every part of the piece, and minimizes the possibility of a piece having a sticky or uncured core.

🌈 Adding Color to Alumi-UV

UV resins open a world of creative possibilities with their fast curing and ease of use. If you want to add a splash of color, here's what you need to know: 🌈✨

🎨 Compatible Colorants

  • Mica Powder: Adds a beautiful shimmer and pearlescent effect.
  • Alcohol Inks: Create vibrant, translucent colors with swirls and marbled effects.
  • Glitter: Offers playful sparkle and dimension.
  • Liquid Pigments: Specifically designed for resin, these offer concentrated color.

🔮 Tips for Success

  • Less is More: Start with tiny amounts of colorant. Overdoing it can block the UV light, leading to improper curing and a soft or sticky result.
  • Clear Molds: Let the colors shine! Clear molds ensure maximum light penetration for a complete cure.
  • Thorough Mixing: Use a separate cup to mix your resin and colorant before pouring into your mold. This ensures even color distribution.
  • Mica Dusting: For a clear interior with a colorful shimmer, lightly dust your mold with mica powder before adding the resin.
  • Curing Both Sides: Always cure both sides of your project for optimal results.
  • Tacky Surfaces: If you encounter stickiness, a thin top coat of resin and additional curing time should solve the problem.
  • Layering: Create depth and dimension by layering different colors of resin. Cure each layer partially before adding the next.
  • Test Swatches: Always test your color combinations in small batches before committing to your main project.

⚠ Important Notes:

  • Some pigments may not be compatible with UV resin. Always test with a small sample before coloring a large batch.
  • The intensity of the color depends on the amount of colorant and the thickness of your project.
