Water-Clear – Two-component epoxy system highly efficient for film application (1 mm [0,03”]) and castings up to 2 cm [0,78”] thickness.
Besides the high transparency and the self-levelling properties, multipurpose transparent epoxy is a very versatile product for DIY and casting in silicone molds. Furthermore, it guarantees a good mechanical seal for reinforcement and applications with carbon fibre.
The product features a low viscosity that reduces the appearance of unaesthetic air bubbles after hardening and facilitates the impregnation of carbon fibre.
The excellent resistance to ambient humidity guarantees a glossy and transparent surface.
The product is compatible with the major coloring pastes on the market.
Transparent Epoxy resin is a two-component product based on epoxy resins and relative amine hardener.
- high transparency;
- excellent mechanical strength;
- good chemical resistance;
- high impregnation and reinforcement of technical fabrics;
- long working time;
- glossy and self-levelling surface.
The product can be coloured with any epoxy dye (both in paste and powder) in a percentage ranging from 0.1% to 2.0%. It can also be thickened by the use of aggregates such as powders and fumed silica.

How to use. Mix ratio based on weight – 100:60.
For best results, measure two components based on weight using a scale within 5% of the recommended mix ratio.
- Always mix the product thoroughly for at least 2 minutes, scraping all the surfaces of the container to ensure complete mixing.
- Try to use the product in a temperature-controlled environment within the optimal product specifications.
- Avoid high humidity or low ambient temperatures.
- Ensure that the surface is dry and any dirt, dust and oils removed to achieve optimal bonding. It is furthermore highly recommended to sand the surface (with sandpaper or mechanical preparation).
- Perform small preliminary tests to have a clear understanding of the polymerization features of the resins in your work environment and the compatibility of the resins with other materials.
