The Below is a statement from the Fusion Company on this product:-
Our pouring resin is made for fine art typically.
Some of your clients may be looking for a 2 part epoxy resin. Pros and Cons of 2 part systems. Pros, they are great for counter tops and table tops, Cons They are typically quite yellowing and delaminate and crack. Ours doesn’t do that. You can probably use our Pouring Resin, but it is a little more finickily because it is completely water based and more eco friendly.
Bubbles will come from two things.
1. Large surface bubbles and those are created from over mixing the medium.
2. Then there are small bubbles that are almost under the surface, those are the trickier ones and those come from a chemicals reaction between the substrate or paints that are being used. Also adding water or Floetrol etc, that will cause many issues from bubbles to more.
To avoid bubbles, the best surfaces are birch or maple, and prime it first with a layer of Fusion Paint. Don’t use MDF or other substrates with glues to avoid chemical reactions. A higher quality canvas or wood panel will work well to avoid bubbles.
Is it UV resistant? 100% UV resistant. – No yellowing at all.
Is it heat resistant? It’s decent for heat, but not ideal. For Coasters etc you might get a slight ring, however most likely you will be ok. It is possible.
Is it food safe? It’s not made for a food surface, however overall for general use it would be safe.
Can you apply it over alcohol inks? If it’s water resoluble then it won’t work, but most of the alcohol inks it should work.
What is it's workable time? Once you’ve poured the resin, it isn’t recommended to touch it. If you play with it, it will change the finish in those areas. It affects how it will dry where you have touched it. Best to just pour it and leave it alone. Best as used on a top coat for paintings for that reason.
Can it be used on countertops or laminate?
Not suggested on laminate, could do as an experiment, however it’s not intended for counter top use. A 2 part epoxy system is recommended.
The pouring resin sticks well to aluminum.
