Alumilite Clear SLOW Casting Resin - 16 lb Kit.

Alumilite Clear Slow Casting Resin has a 12min open time and produces a high impact, optically clear casting that can be dyed or pigmented. This slower setting formula allows for a longer open (working) time, and also a slower cure time, and less of a heat build-up with larger castings. Turned blanks can be easily polished to a high gloss. Pressure casting is recommended to achieve 100% bubble-free castings. 

Alumilite Clear must be mixed 1:1 by weight. Off-ratio mixing may produce hazy or frosted parts. B side may thicken and need to be warmed before use.

Alumilite is sold and mixed by weight. (Side B weighs more than side A, and will therefore have less in the bottle.) 

The 16 lb kit includes 8 lb of side A and 8 lb of side B.

    Is there a time or temperature of when tinted resin will not blend with other tinted resin?

    "Alumilite Clear SLOW has a 12min open time" Open time is defined as the time before the resin will gel/set. (Although this may vary a bit depending on your location's ambient temp & humidity).

    You would need to combine the colors before the resin working time is over, and the resin sets up/gels. The temperature of the exothermic reaction when folks like to do this is a personal preference sort of thing. Typically it is done between 95-100.
