Clear resin used primarily in thick castings where a water clear cured product is required. Used extensively in decorative and artistic applications. Catalyst ratio must be varied to account for thickness of cast and temperature. Testing suitability of this product is highly recommended for unusual applications.
**Not for use as a thin coat laminating resin.**
Transparent pigments can be added for desired effects
Color: Transparent Blue / DRIES Clear
Polyester Material Info:
Polyester resins are the most commonly used matrix in the marine and composite industry. These resins are styrene-based, flammable and catalyzed when combined with Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide(MEKP). When working with these resins in large projects it is advised to use gloves and a chemical respirator to protect yourself from the fumes. These resins can be used with any type of fiberglass, carbon fiber or kevlar, as well as used over urethane foam and other sandwich core materials. These resins tend to be fairly rigid when cured and also more brittle than epoxy resins.
All resins and gelcoats are sold without wax(sanding aid): If needed you can purchase surfacing wax separately for use on finishing coats. Unwaxed resin can be re-coated with little to no prep work but will leave a tacky surface. Mix the wax(sanding aid) with your resin only on your final coats in order to allow easy sanding. Catalyst/Mixing Ratios: All resin prices include catalyst. 1 Quart= 1ounce, 1 Gallon=2ounce, 5gal=6ounce. The amounts included can be varied based on your temperature and desired curing times. Cooler temperatures may require a higher % of catalyst than warm conditions. If additional catalyst(MEKP) is needed please order separately.
Because polyester resins are a flammable liquid, we are unable to ship these products by air freight. Quarts and gallons can be shipped via UPS ground with no extra fees with a maximum of four gallons per box. 5 gallon pails can be shipped via UPS ground only and require an additional $30.00 hazardous materials fee. Orders for multiple 5 gallon pails can be shipped by a common carrier(freight line) as well.
All resin prices include catalyst.
1 Quart= 1oz, 1 Gallon=2oz, 5 Gal=6oz
Fourth gallon so far. This resin is amazing.
Very easy to use and super fast shipping.
Silmar 41 is excellent resin. Creates a water clear cast if used without colorant. Its durable as long as you don’t over catalyze excessively. Consistent quality throught batches, I’ve been using with great results since 2014. Price on illstreet is the best on line.
Best stuff we’ve used yet- will order again. Good website, communication, 5 star
This is the best stuff we’ve tried yet . Fair price good casting – will order again.
First order and first time user of this particular product…works well, had a touch of a learning curve on the catalist when it starts cooking it really goes fast..packed good. A little pricy on shipping but overall very pleased
We have been buying about 2 gallons every 6 weeks for the past several years. After trying several different types and brands of clear resin this has been the best. Excellent packaging with Fast Shipping
have used the product for years and I’m very satisfied.
This is my 3rd or 4th order and you have not let us down once. A very good product, as evident in multiple orders. You are very prompt and timely and I can count on my order arriving as soon as possible. The product itself is great and each and every time has a very good quality. Thank you for being a company we can count on!
This is a great product. It dry’s crystal clear. I have been making tile for my kitchen back splash. It’s very beautiful. I add color and glitter or whatever it works every time. The people working there are very helpful, and ship the resin out very fast.
