I’m using the Resin Obsession slow-curing deep pour resin, waiting for gel time to add the next layer. I combined 400ml resin with 200ml hardener and mixed then for 4-5 minutes. The pour is just under 2″ deep, and room temperature is about 71 degrees. It’s been sitting for close to 6 hours and is still quite fluid. Is something wrong?
I’m glad to hear you’re having fun with the deep pour resin. Woo hoo!
You did a good job of mixing enough, and in the right ratio of resin to hardener, so I don’t think that’s your problem.
It’s completely normal for the deep pour resin to be fluid at 6 hours after mixing. (It freaked me out, too the first few times I used this formula.) Depending on how thick you pour this resin, it takes 12 to 18 hours to reach the gel phase. Maybe even a little longer if you’re pouring it in a thin layer.
I’ll need to remove the the project from the temperature-controlled space it’s been in for 3.5 days. Since it’s such a large pour (over a liter) I’d like to keep it curing for a few more days – are temperature swings (64-72) okay at this point?
