“Form” Construction Blog
The boxes other companies use are generally individually sized and used only once. The technique I use is designed to be re-used many times over. This I have found has worked for me better for a good production line and less waste.
Reusable container for Epoxy resin pours.
- I have large slab of old kitchen work top that I use as a base for all my boxes.
- On the base board I mark out an area that is at least 2 inches wider and 2 inches longer than the project I am doing.
- The 4 sides need to be at least 1 inch taller than the project thickness.
- The base board designated area is completely covered with sealant tape.
- The sides are also completely taped to protect them.
- I screwed the 4 sides to the base board from below every 4 inches.
- The joints where the sides meet each other and the base board are now taped
- Place the project within the box and clamp in place.
- I use 4 clamps that clamp either end of the project. I have 2 brace struts that hold the project in place that span the entire length of the project. This holds it securely in place.
- Heat the room to 24 degrees celsuis.
- Then I mix the resin, pour resin, (stir for desired effect if using shimmer powder).
- I use blow torch to remove air bubbles that are created.
- Leave for 3 days to fully cure and cool room.
- Unscrew the 4 sides and remove project from box.
- I finally sand and polish the project to complete it.
I have modified my process many times and above is the best way I have found to eliminate leakage and maintain the integrity of the project
