This stuff isn't cheap, but it's by far the best UV resin that I've tried. I love that there's no mixing involved and there's therefore no air bubbles. It doesn't stink like a lot of other uv resins do. And when filed/drilled it has a sweet smell rather than the usual chemical smell from other brands. It sets very hard - harder than a normal resin does but is lightweight. I've been able to dome pieces of Jewellery made using normal two part resin and it's turned out beautifully with no yellowing. I've also found that I can use it with my transparent silicone moulds to add a gloss layer to a nearly finished piece (I put some uv resin into the mould, pop in the nearly finished piece of Jewellery and then put it under the uv lamp, turning regularly so that all angles can cure). The only downside to this resin is the price, it's very expensive compared to other uv resins on the market, although it's worth the cost!
UV Crystal Super Resin - now in a larger 55g size. This one-part crystal clear resin is so easy to use! With the help of a UV light box the UV Crystal Resin cures in minutes, rather than hours.
Lacking patience? Want instant results? This resin is for you. It sets crystal clear and rock hard. The bottle has a useful applicator tip, making it easy to apply - no messing about with scooping thick gooey gel out of pots with sticky spatulas. You can apply the gel from the pot directly onto your piece, as it is quite thick it is easy to handle. The thick viscosity of the gel allows you to create slightly domed effects easily.
The gel cures rock hard in minutes with a UV light box. The time of curing varies on the UV light and if you add colour or any other decorations to the resin. In a high wattage (36W and above) UV light box, clear gel cures in only 3-10 minutes, in smaller boxes it can be around 7-15 minutes - a lot faster than most resins! It will not leave a sticky surface, and doesn't need any polishing, unless you want to reshape it.
Make sure your UV light can reach all the corners of the gel - add, and cure, in thin layers, ideally not thicker than approx. 2mm at a time. If you are working with moulds, you definitely want to cure in layers, and consider angling your piece differently throughout the different curing sessions to help the light reach all of the resin.
It can be coloured with any of the resin colours we sell, and any of our PearlEx powders will give you gorgeous colours and effects, including shimmering duo-colours that shifts colour. After a sparkly effect? Try the Holographic Glitter for a really stunning iridescent shimmer.
Please note: there are LED versions of the UV light boxes available on the market - we can't guarantee this product will work with these boxes. We recommend you use a UV light box, like our own version here.
For best results store the pot in a dark environment under 20C. Use as soon as possible once open.

Use in a ventilated area, and not near an open flame. We highly recommend you protect your skin and eyes whenever working with any type of resin.
