Weighing and mixing
Calculate amount of material required – 275g of Ausmonite Resin Liquid and 550g of Ausmonite Resin Powder will fill approximately 450mL.
Weigh out amount of Liquid required.
Add pigments to the Liquid and mix to achieve the desired colour.
Weight out the amount of Powder required (2 parts Powder to 1 part Liquid by mass). Add the Powder component to the pigmented Liquid component and mix until a uniform mixture is obtained – ensure that the sides and bottom are scraped and incorporated into the mixture. Mixing can either be by hand with a metal spatula or similar, or with a high speed drill mixer.
Pour material into the mold.
Working time of mixture after incorporation of Powder and Liquid is approximately 15 minutes.
The cure time required is subject to volume of material mixed, as well as environmental conditions. For casts of 100g to 300g 45 minutes to 1 hour is recommended before demolding. A tooth pick or gently touching the mold can help assess if the material is ready to demold. The material will continue to develop strength following demolding.
