Castable Blend resin
The Castable Blend resin from Fun To Do has been specifically created to cast pieces in bronze, copper, tin or iron using a standard casting process. It is the ideal resin for casting art pieces, toy designs, machinery parts. The resin, once fully cured, has a shore hardness of 73 D. Castable Blend resin is available in Red color. Instructions to optimize the process of Casting by lost wax with Castable Blend resin * Preheat the oven to 850 degrees Celsius * 30 minutes after mixing the material to be melted (investment), place the mold directly in the hot oven * Hold at 850 degrees Celsius for 1 hour and 30 minutes. * Then, lower to 485 degrees Celsius as fast as the oven allows. * Keep at 485 degrees for 15 minutes and strain.Volume of 1 liter capacity.The shelf life of the resin is about 1 year. Store the product in an environment between 10ºC and 25ºC. An environment of excessive heat will prematurely polymerize the resin. Resin that has not cured in an impression can be reused for later printing.

The resin is composed of three elements, the photo initiator, the monomer and the inhibitor photo. The initiating photo once exposed to ultraviolet light causes the monomer to harden. The mission of the inhibitor photo is to prevent ultraviolet light from curing too much in depth. The exposure time of the ultraviolet light, the% of the initiator photo and the inhibitor photo% make it possible to work with the layer height desired. With a DLP projector that emits between 2500 and 3000 lumens, the Fun To Do resin takes between 2 and 4 seconds to cure for a layer height of 75 microns (0.075mm). Times are the ones used for the SLA SolidRay 3d printer. There are multiple factors that directly affect the cure times needed for each resin, such as: layer height, resin color, projector lumens, brightness and contrast of the projector , distance between projector and resin,... The times indicated are for guidance. And once the piece is printed do not forget:
* Insert and remove the piece in a bath of isopropyl alcohol between 2 and 4 minutes to remove remains of resin , use a soft brush if necessary.
* Wipe off any remaining isopropyl alcohol with a spray of compressed air or a hair dryer (with no hot air).
* Leave the sun between 20 and 40 minutes or under ultraviolet light between 1 and 8 minutes - depending on the piece (uv light lamps for drying nail polish also work).
