It's not bad, and it has its perks. It also has its disadvantages as well. I like having a resin that's actually clear, that I can tint to my own needs. It also takes PearlEx pigments nicely, though it takes a LOT of mixing to disperse them evenly. It also doesn't give off a lot of heat, and is low-odor, though you'll still want to use it with adequate ventilation. Like most resins, it cleans up nicely before it's cured with denatured alcohol.

It is, however, a very slow curing product - 24 hours for soft cure, 72 for hard. This means, DO NOT TOUCH IT until it's at least 72 hours old, unless you want to end up leaving fingerprints on the surface. You will also need to plan well in advance, so that your products have the necessary time to cure fully. You should not attempt to remove anything from your molds until the hard cure state, due to the potential to disfigure your casts.

In other words, if you expect to churn out a bunch of jewelry the day before a show or something, you're in for a nasty surprise if you try using this product. You really need to plan accordingly. For such a slow-curing product, it also has a surprisingly short pot life (the time it takes before it starts to cure, and becomes too thick to use efficiently). The two-stage mixing process is a little annoying.

Three stars because it does what it's supposed to do, but if you happen to have a shop nearby that sells resin and plastics, you can likely find something else that will do a similar job, more quickly and at a more reasonable price. If this is all you can get, it will serve you well, but you MUST budget your time with it appropriately.

This product is really superb for making water and waterfalls in dioramas and train layouts. And it is great for all kinds of arts and crafts projects. I use this all the time, even made a handle for my dagger of time project because it looks like glass.

The thing that makes this product really superior to other casting producs is that it is very easy to mix. It comes with two bottles of liquid. You simply mix equal portions of each bottle then pour and you are done. Just let it dry.

And, it is also terrific because there are no fumes. I love it and use it all the time. It creates a beautiful glass like product.

I will preface my review with this: I started dabbling in resin using ICE Resin. By comparison, ICE is thicker, and I found it easier to pop bubbles in it. ICE is also more expensive so I looked around some more. I found EasyCast and Envirotex Lite (both from Environmental Technology). I will say that I like Envirotex Lite more than I do EasyCast. Besides the fact that it is the cheapest, I could not think of anything that I like about it.

First off, as earlier noted, it is thinner or less viscous than either ICE Resin or Envirotex Lite. It is less desirable for doming. I have also noticed a little bit of film on the surface of my pieces, right in the middle, usually a thin line. This is a problem for pieces that I cast where the top surface is NOT the bottom of the piece. I measured very carefully, as I have with the other types, and I seem to have that sticky film in the middle quite often. Yes, I did as the instructions said; I poured into another mixing cup and used a new stirring stick after 2 minutes of mixing. While the odor while degassing is less noticeable, the time it takes me to feel light-headed from the fumes is about the same as with other types (yes, I am in a fairly well-ventilated room). The fact that it uses up twice as many materials to mix it (and twice as much time as well) is also a bit of a turnoff for me. Envirotex Lite also recommends using a second mixing cup, but mixing time in each cup is only a minute. The problem with Envirotex Lite is that it heats up rather quickly and is therefore not advisable to use for deeper pieces. ICE Resin does not have that limitation. EasyCast takes longer to cure as well.

I needed some clear epoxy to make some bottle cap magnets, and I was pleased with this product. It dried relatively quickly with good clarity and no bubbles or other flaws. Allow several days to dry before touching the surface, because even though it has hardened, it is soft enough for fingerprints in the first 24/48 hours.

I have used this epoxy casting resin for encapsulating a few electrical parts. I was very impressed with how clear the epoxy is and how clear it cures - I looks water-clear to me. When you mix the two parts, be sure to stir well but not so vigorously that you mix air bubbles into the mix.

Regardless of how you measure it, you must be careful to measure the exact 1:1 ratio of resin to hardner. If you are off a bit on the side of not enough hardener it will never, ever harden. You can heat the un-hardened mis-measured glop but that won't make it harden. On the other hand, using a heat gun with moderate heat does help further soften the unhardened mis-mix so you can remove it more easily and start over. If you go a bit too high on the hardner it hardens faster - That is not always a good thing.

Even without vacuum de-gassing, the epoxy seems to do a good job of letting any air bubbles rise to the surface before it cures - That's the advantage of a very slow cure and a very low viscosity. Resist the temptation to touch the material before it is fully cured if you don't want fingerprints.

If you should use vacuum degassing, I have noticed that you shouldn't go below -20 inches of mercury of vacuum ( a full vacuum is about -30 inches of mercury). Somewhere between -20 and -25 inches of mercury; boiling is induced by the vacuum in the uncured epoxy mix. I assume this is water or some other volatile compound present in the epoxy. Anyway, this induces bubbles in the uncured epoxy, though when you return to normal pressure these bubbles mostly collapse and disappear. Unless you are using a refrigeration type vacuum pump this is probably not a issue. (My vacuum gauge is calibrated in "inches of mercury" - there is no actual mercury present.)
