Alumilite Clear (Slow) is a crystal clear resin that is easy to use and great for a wide variety of clear casting applications. It is a favourite with woodturners!
Alumilite Clear produces an extra strong, crystal clear casting which polishes to a high shine beautifully. It can be dyed or pigmented and produces an optically clear casting. This resin has excellent cosmetic detail and is easy to use. It is highly recommended for encapsulating and turning applications as it is extremely strong and durable, and it turns beautifully without chipping or cracking. Turned blanks can be easily polished to a high gloss. It has a 12 min open time. Can be sanded, wet sanded, and/or buffed.
Alumilite Clear must be mixed 1:1 by weight. Off-ratio mixing may produce hazy or frosted parts. B side may thicken and need to be warmed before use.
Recommended for experienced resin users. Pressure casting is required.
Don't use water based dyes or colours with this resin. Our Alumilite Dyes are ideal (which come in a huge range of colours, including fluorescent neon colours!), as well as any dry colours. For gorgeous shimmers and high quality metal effects, use Mica Powder Pigments or the Alumilite Metal Powders. For a glow in the dark effect, use the Phosphorescent Powder!

If you work with a large amount of resin, or work with it often, you might want to invest in a VOC filtered face mask.

Wouldn't use anything else - having tried tried a few! Only had one failure with this and that was down to pilot error! Great product.
This is the best resin i used in my life so far. very fast demolding time, easy mix ratio by weight. clear like glass, easy to sand and finish. i highly recommend this product. no other resin cures so fast and still is clear (i tried few 24 or more hours demolding resins, less wait but same or even better results is worth the price).
Perfect to turn
If you follow the instructions, use a pressure pot and do a bit of research regarding casting then you will not fail to be impressed. Great product.
