May 30, 2017 at 2:05 pm #9052 Katherine SwiftKeymaster Hi Christine, Good question. Resin generally refers to the two-part systems which when mixed together will harden. (UV resin is a bit of an exception here, but I digress). When people refer to resin, they are most likely referring to epoxy resin, which is a kind of resin. There are other kinds, however, that you may come across. I detail them here: https://www.resinobsession.com/resin-frequently-asked-questions/what-are-the-different-types-of-resin August 19, 2018 at 2:55 am #15093 HeatherGuest Hi I recently saw the u v resin and I have it used the normal resin .. what is the benefit of the uv?
