Metal & General Powder Fillers –
Our Metal & General Powder Fillers prove ideal for enhancing resin casting. Utilize metal powders like brass, bronze, copper, and iron to craft captivating cold cast metal effects. For an authentic metallic finish, increase the amount of metal powder. Subsequently, you have the option to buff, polish, or apply a patina as necessary. It’s worth noting that the color of the metal particles may undergo changes over time due to oxidation and might exhibit variations between batches. To maintain color consistency, we advise ordering a sufficient quantity at once rather than opting for smaller quantities over multiple transactions.
In high-temperature applications such as vacuum forming, consider incorporating aluminum powder into resins. Aluminum granules serve as effective fillers in resin molds for vacuum forming and low-pressure injection, ensuring minimal distortion and providing high strength.
Explore our Industrial talc as an economical filler for expanding resins and mitigating their exothermic reaction. Pair Polyfiber Thickener II with Polyurethane resins like Easycast or TC-808 to fashion a brush-on formula, perfect for crafting mold jackets. Omyacarb 40, our calcium carbonate filler, caters to applications demanding a coarser filler. For versatility, incorporate Q-Cel 520, a hollow glass micro-balloon, into almost any resin to impart lightweight and buoyant properties, making it an excellent choice for crafting fishing lures.
