Epoxy or Acrylic for large volume casting?

Postby Phily » Tue Oct 11, 2016 10:19 pm

I have a project that will require a single pour casting of around 20 litres of resin. The finish needs to be crystal clear, hard and UV stable.

I believe I have come up with a way of achieving a low exotherm epoxy casting with an additive for UV stabilisation. However it has been suggested that Acrylic resin may be a better alternative (especially as the epoxy approach is experimental) but I have zero experience with and little knowledge of Acrylics.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Cheers
