How flexible is flexible resin?

Flexible Resin is a rubber-like material with elastomeric properties but low elongation. This means that parts are bendable and compressible but not stretchable.

What resins are flexible?

Flexible resin is a type of UV-cured 3D printing resin that mimics the properties of rubber. It stands out for creating firm but flexible parts, and how stiff or flexible these parts are depends on the Shore hardness of the resin when cured.

Is marine epoxy flexible?

Marine-Tex FlexSet is a non-sagging, non-shrinking, permanently flexible adhesive. Sandable and paintable, FlexSet resists vibration and bending failures by curing to a tough, flexible consistency that creates an air and watertight seal between mating surfaces.

Why does resin not harden?

If your ratio of resin to hardener is off, your resin will not harden. If the ambient temperature in your workspace isn’t ideal, or if your resin mixture has been contaminated, this could also cause your resin to not cure correctly.

Should resin be bendy?

Although ArtResin will fully cure on thin pours, expect your resin to be bendy if it is not thicker than ⅓ of an inch.

What happens if epoxy resin does not harden?

Try moving your piece to a warmer spot: if it doesn’t dry, re-pour with a fresh coat of resin. Soft, sticky spots: If you have sticky spots on an otherwise perfectly cured surface, you may have scraped out unmixed resin or hardener from the sides of your mixing container when you poured.

How do you soften hard resin?

Room temperature: The best temperature for the resin to cure fully is 75°F to 85°F (25°C to 30°C). If the room is any colder, this may affect the curing process. Not mixing your resin and hardener thoroughly, mix for at least three minutes and make sure to scrape around the sides and bottom of your container.

Why is my resin still too soft?

Your resin needs more time to cure – While resin is curing, it turns semi-solid (think gelatin) but is soft and pliable. In other words, it looks like it’s done curing, but it may not be. Double-check the cure time for your resin. If you’re lucky, you simply need to give it more time to cure.
