GreenCast160-CF High biomass clear casting resin

Epoxy system formulated with highly translucent components, designed for decorative parts, river tables and jewellery where high finish is required.

Key Features 
  • Excellent UV stability
  • Casting up to 100mm in one hit
  • Excellent self degassing
  • Water clear clarity
  • Hard wearing 
  • Good resistance to thermal and physical shocks

The very slow reactivity of Sicomin GreenCast160 allows for casting thick sections in one operation without a change of colour. You obtain a totally water clear polymer.

This system is ideal for castings from 10mm to 100mm. Anything less than 10mm will result in a longer curing time.

GreenCast160 is formulated with a built in UV filtration system which offers excellent protection in demanding applications. GreenCast160 exhibits class leading UV stability for best UV protection a surface coating PU/epoxy such as TopClear or SurfClear EVO is recommended .

Sustainably manufactured resin produced from high plant and vegetable biomass. Green carbon content of 37%. VOC free.

Suggested Applications

• Resin river tables
• Counter tops
• Decorative castings
• Artwork
• Model Making
• Thick sectional casting

Application Tips

This water clear casting system has a very unique formulation enabling excellent self degassing at room temperature. Vacuum chambers can be used for smaller intricate casting if necessary. For large resin river tables working with all materials at room temperature will help self degassing. An electric heat gun can help clear bubbles in the mix although not vital. It is important to work in an environment with low humidity and consistent temperature during curing process. 

GreenCast 160 is suitable for casting up to 100mm in one hit. For larger areas a maximum of 60kg per pour at 25mm-50mm is safer. There are a range of things to factor in when casting large amounts such as; ambient temperature, how well the mould is insulated and temperature of resin. Paying attention to these parameters will avoid the resin getting too hot causing an exothermic reaction. For large scale casting around 100mm it is advisable to cast in 2 or 3 sections, whilst the first cast is in the b stage of cure and tacky to touch then apply subsequent layers.This is typically after 48 hours at room temperature.

Mixing Guidelines
  • Simple Mix Ratio - 2/1 Volume or 100g/42g by weight
  • Curing Time at 20°C - 48h
  • Full Cure 7 days at 20°C

Mix resin and hardener thoroughly paying attention to base and sides of mixing pot.If mixed incorrectly tacky spots may be present or worst case no curing at all. Work with well laid out tools and consumables in a methodical manner. 

This epoxy system hardens at room temperature, in order to get the full mechanical properties, a post-cure from 40 to 60°C is possible.
Almost no odour during application.
Excellent resistance to thermal and physical shocks.
