Yes, once RESIN4DECOR is cured, it is fully inert and can be safely used as a food contact surface.
Many resins contain a UV stabilizer to help delay the epoxy's natural yellowing process, however this alone is not enough to prevent yellowing from happening.
RESIN4DECOR contains both a UV stabilizer as well as an advanced additive called HALS (hindered amine light stabilizer) that helps interrupt the yellowing process before it can begin.
Once fully cured, which typically takes 21 days, the RESIN4DECOR resins can endure temperatures of up to 95°C without losing its structural integrity.
RESIN4DECOR is considered a non-toxic material when used as directed, however there are some common sense safety precautions that every user should follow:
1. Wear gloves. Epoxy resin is very sticky in its liquid form, so gloves will protect the user from a mess, as well as skin irritation. Clean skin promptly with soap and water if it does come in contact with the product.If the product somehow comes in contact with your eyes, flush with water repeatedly and do not rub. Promptly seek medical attention.
2. Work in a well ventilated area.
3. Wear a respirator if ventilation is poor.
RESIN4DECOR resins will stay fresh for about 6 months in opened bottles, or 1 year unopened.
Yes, RESIN4DECOR can be tinted with RESIN4DECOR pigments, as well as acrylic paint or ink. Simply drop color into the mixture while stirring for an all over saturated color.
All 17 RESIN4DECOR pigments are crafted for compatibility with RESIN4DECOR epoxy resin: this colorant will preserve the glossiness and translucency of the resin and will not cause a flammability risk when torched.
