KastEZ Resin is a two-part polyurethane casting system. KastEZ Resin is mixed one-to-one by volume and cures at room temperature. KastEZ polyurethane resin produces a lower exothermic temperature than most comparable resins. KastEZ begins to gel in 1.5 minutes and cures to an ivory white color in 7-10 minutes. KastEZ Resin is used to make casting from rigid and flexible molds. Some of the most common uses of KastEZ Resin are figurines, displays, rapid prototypes, special effects and sculpture reproductions.
