Can I use any resin in 3D printer?

No, not all 3D printers can print with resin since it requires a UV light to cure the photopolymer resin to harden it to a plastic. SLA, MSLA & DLP 3D printers all have a light source that emits through a screen which helps to cure the resin in a resin vat. FDM 3D printers use thermoplastic filament to create objects.

Do you have to use hardener with resin?

On their own, epoxy resins are very stable fluids with relatively long shelf lives. It is only when mixed with an epoxy hardener that they can cure properly. If applied onto a floor without the hardener, the resin would remain a near liquid indefinitely and could not transform into a durable flooring system.

Can you over mix resin?

If you mix too vigorously, you can trap air and introduce bubbles. If you’re overly enthusiastic, you’ll get a “foamy” epoxy that looks like whipped cream. Note that a few bubbles will appear in properly mixed epoxy.

What is the ratio of resin to hardener?

Mix the resin – VOLUME – To achieve the correct 2:1 mix ratio by volume, simply measure out 2-parts resin to 1 part hardener before mixing the components.

Can you thin epoxy with water?
