When casting into wood the insulating effect of the wood (particularly if you also have a wooden base/board) can make it very difficult for the resin to lose heat as it cures. This limits the maximum recommended castable thickness when casting into wood at 25mm. This is particularly important when working in higher ambient temperatures (anything above 20°C). For a typical'river table' fill (example 40mm) we would suggest splitting the main pour into 2 layers of 20mm each, this will avoid the possible risk of exotherm during cure and achieve the best possible results.
When casting GlassCast 50 into other materials such as plastic or silicone moulds, it it usually possible to cast up to 50mm in thickness in a single pour. How to use GlassCast 50 for a Resin River Table. Make sure you fully read our Technical and Safety Datasheets before starting your project.
There are so many project possibilities when using GlassCast 50 but the project catching everyone's imagination at the moment is the Resin River Tables and GlassCast 50 is the perfect product to achieve a stunning resin river table. Despite the very good advanced'UV' resistant formulation of our Glass Cast resins, we don't suggest using the GlassCast range of resins for permanent, outdoor applications. This is down to epoxy chemistry meaning that eventually, over time, depending on UV exposure, environmental conditions etc, the resins will always eventually yellow in outdoor conditions. How visible this is depends on factors such as the underlying colour and conditions experienced.
We simply don't have the longevity of testing to be able to guarantee how long it will be before the resin may start to deteriorate in direct sunlight, adverse weather conditions (freezing in winter, high temps in summer), water pooling or sitting on top, etc. We have got customers who have used it for such applications but the advice would be to either put the outdoor prjects away between uses or to have a cover to protect it if no other product yacht varnish, etc. The team behind Glass Cast are on hand to help with any questions you may have, whether you want help with calculating the right quantity or need advice or mixing, pouring or troubleshooting.
