The resin is made from renewable raw materials sourced from plants. The high renewable content of the systems is certified under the United States Department of Agriculture's BioPreferred® program.
QR Polymers have developped two epoxy systems for use in decorative applications such as epoxy-wood tables, bar or other countertops, river tables, ornamental objects (night lamps, art castings,…) and more hobby, decoupage and DIY applications.
These systems are water-white transparent and can easily be pigmented/coloured if suited. The cured products are hard, scratch resistant and whitstand humidity very well.
The two systems differ by the reactivity of the curing agent. The fastest system is suited for thin layers (varnishes) up to thin castings. For thicker castings, it is advised to use the less reactive/low exotherm system. See details below.
The technical bulletin on these systems for decoupage and decorative table tops can be downloaded here.
