Description
Castable resins are monomer resins which utilize a catalyst or hardener for polymerization.

Polymerization results in cross-linking of the polymer to form a relatively hard mount. Castable resins also have the advantage of simultaneously mounting multiple samples at one time for increased throughput.

 

Characteristics of Castable Acrylics
  • Rapid mounting
  • Very repeatable and consistent mounts
  • Moderate shrinkage
  • Good hardness
  • Semi-transparent
  • High odor

Characteristics of Epoxy Resins
  • Low shrinkage
  • Relatively clear
  • Relatively low exotherms
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Good hardness
  • Relatively inexpensive

 

Characteristics of Polyester Castable Resins
  • Very clear (water clear)
  • High odor
  • Best resin system for making large castings

Polyester resins are similar to acrylics and can be submerged into water during the curing cycle in order to reduce the exotherm temperature and shrinkage.
