Type of Resin
- Epoxy Resin
- UV Resin
- Polyester Resin
- Polyurethane Resin
Epoxy resin is the most famous resin and practical of that used for the jewelry, make tables, clock, etc. this causes the epoxy resin to have so fans. Furthermore, this kind of resin is durable and resistant. It has an affordable price and is accessible to almost everyone in every country. epoxy resin also has some disadvantages. For example, if the epoxy resin becomes in the exact front of the sun, the quality of that is decreased. Also, the color of that would probably be changed to become yellow when it gets in front of the sun.
This kind of resin looks like epoxy resin but it has some differences regarding the chemical compounds and regularization. Whilst epoxy resin has two materials to compound (resin and hardener), UV resin has completely different regularization. When we put UV resin exposed to UV light, UV resin becomes dried quickly. This is a kind of a positive point because other kinds of resin take a long time to be dried. However, the main disadvantage of this wood is the price of that which is roughly expensive. You can paint UV resin before use. Also, another drawback of UV resin is its durability of that which is so low, and it would not probably work after 6 months. To arrange this epoxy, we need a UV lamp which can be costly. Consequently, because of these reasons, it is an expensive resin and it is better to use a thin layer of this resin in your work.
Polyester resin is a resin that has a high resistance to water. As a result, we mostly utilize this model of resin to create boats and swimming pools. This resin is affordable resin also the dryness time is fixable because it depends on the hardener liquid. During preparing this resin, we have to pour the resin and hardener like epoxy resin and whisk them. If would not mix them very well, the material is settled and remained at the bottom of the bucket.
4) Polyurethane Resin
Generally speaking, Polyurethanes are synthetic or plastic resins which are resulted from the combination of some chemical materials. This resin is sensitive to moisture and is persistent against heat. All in all, it is so practical and you can easily find it at every house stuff as well as utilize it in the car industry.
All in all, resin is a material found in two forms natural and synthetic. It is resistant and customizable. However, it has some disadvantages such as the price of that which is so expensive. It can be compounded with wood and stone although the weight of that becomes so high.
