What is Sculpture Resin?
Today, with the boom of the sculpture industry and its increasing growth and development, the use of resins and hardeners and catalysts has also increased. So that at present, sculptural resins are used to make most of the sculptures (statues, sardis, etc.). One type of resin used in the sculpture industry is polyunsaturated resins.
Polyester resin is initially a liquid in the concentration of jam, but when mixed with a hardener, after a while the heat rises to a jelly state and then hardens. Of course, adding a few drops of catalyst can reduce the drying time. Polyester resin must be baked in a kiln to harden.
Note: Due to the high adhesion of polyester resin, we must smooth the inside of the mold and use separators inside it. We can use paraffin or film for this. The film is a liquid that is brushed on the surface of the mold and after drying, forms a thin nylon-like layer. Polyester resins have special storage conditions and should be stored in a dark and cool place for maximum life (6 months).
