iCoat Depth Casting Epoxy, Deep Casting Epoxy
Low casting viscosity
Pot Life/Work Time 2+ hours, dependent on temperature & any added heat in environment.
Pour 1.5" up to 3-4" deep
Cures to the touch in 48 to 72 hours (depending on volume). If poured at 2 1/2" plus, about 48 or so hours to demould (volume, mass & temperature dependent). Thinner than recommended depth will take a lot longer to cure.
Bubble free (when used at correct temperatures).
Heat tolerance between 250-300F
Shore D hardness at 14 days cure is D71, at 7 days cure is D65.
Depth epoxy is available in 2 sizes (3 gallon & 1.5 gallon kits).
To calculate volume needed on projects, please see our resin calculators page for assistance with both top-coating and casting epoxy volume estimates.
iCoat Depth 2:1 Deep Pour Casting Epoxy
Ideal for river tables, and any projects requiring deeper pouring ability.
Pour from 1.5" up to 3-4" deep, application dependent. Pouring under 1 1/2" is not recommended for this product, as it will take a very extended time to cure in the lower volume depths.
Cures to the touch in 24 hours. Continues to cure over the next several days.
iCoat Depth 2:1 Casting Epoxy will produce a crystal clear glass-like finish.
iCoat Depth 2:1 Deep Pour Casting Epoxy Instrucitons:
Mixing: Thoroughly mix 2 parts of Resin Part A with 1 part Hardener Part B, in a clean, dust free container, with a paint stir stick. Stir for 3-4 minutes, continually scraping the the sides and bottom of the mixing container as well as the stir stir stick. Transfer entire contents into a second container and mix for an additional 1-2 mintues. Mix a maximum of 1 gallon Part A to 1/2 gallon Part B. Mixing larger amounts will significantly decrease working time. Pour immediately onto countertop or river table, leaving a small amount in container for edges. Spread epoxy evenly using a foam brush. After applying, bubbles will appear. Use a propane torch, held approximately 6 inches from surface and sweep rapidly across entire surface until bubbles disappear. Process may need to be repeated if additional bubbles appear. This will leave a glass-like finish. For best curing results room temperature should be between 75-85F (24-29C). Cured to the touch in 24-48 hours, complete cure in 7-10 days.
iCoat Products has been in the business in North America for 30 years, and creates quality products with superior results.
The iCoat products we are currently stocking in Canada, include:
2 High Heat Counter Top/Art Epoxy Resins, two viscosity choices:

4 Castings Epoxy Resins
1:1 ratio - iCoat CE4100 HV casting resin
2:1 ratio - iCoat TP21 Hard Cast casting resin
2:1 ratio - iCoat TP24 Hard Cast apx 24 hour cure
Deep Pour 2:1 - iCoat Depth casting resin
Fast Set epoxy - iCoat Fast Set great for quickly tacking items to a surface
Urethane Primer/Sealer/Clear Coat that can also be used as a fast set - iCoat Wood Primer sealer Urethane 2112
Note: For lathe turning projects, Metal Illusion (is actually an iCoat flooring epoxy), but cures super hard and can be used for lathe type projects. If using on a floor, can be top coated with Renew which is a sacrificial acrylic coating or industrial grade urethane (not stocked in Canada, so if interested enquire about special ordering.).
Note: When using iCoat products, this manufacturer strongly advises use of a thermal gun (infrared thermometer), for best results using their epoxies. This takes the guesswork out of epoxy temperature, as the temperature of a room is not an effective guide. As you get used to using the thermometer, and you automatically check the temperature each and every time you use epoxy, you will achieve consistent results with your projects.
Where a project requires epoxy warmed for best results, iCoat suggests putting the bottles in a bucket of warmer to hot tap water (that correctly fits the bottles, so they don't tip sideways). Water conducts heat 20x faster then air, so it will work better & faster then a seed matt or other warming options.
Different projects and epoxies may require epoxy be heated more than others, so please refer to manufacturers recommendations.
However, if you are pouring the epoxy into a mould, you will need to ensure you get it to correct temperature to have the most clear bubble free results. But please do not heat higher then recommended or you can cause overheating, which can cause premature yellowing.

Storage and Handling:
Caution: Irritant. Store at or above 60F (15.5C). Do not store in direct sunlight. Liquid and ambient temperature of 75F (23.8C) will produce optimal results.
Emergency and First Aid Procedures: Avoid skin contact. Wear nitrile gloves when handling. If skin contact occurs, wash immediately with soap and water, if abrasion is needed add sugar & a bit of oil to the soap mix (or use a mechanics degreaser scrub). If irritation persists, get medical attention. Eye protection is recommended. If eye contact occurs, flush with large quantities of water. If hardener or mixed resin and hardener is swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Dilute by giving water or milk to drink. If resin (part a) only is ingested, induce vomiting. Always get immediate medical attention if swallowed. Keep out of reach of children.
