All you do is pour the resin into your prepared molds and expose it to UV light for a few minutes. It’ll cure clear, hard, and very durable – no yellowing, warping or shrinking when you pop it out of the resin mold. Besides castings, UV Cure Clear Resin is also great as a protective sealer on resin jewelry pieces, and decorative items made with shrink plastic.
It’s easy to add color, embellishments, and encapsulations
The creative possibilities are endless! No need to invest in colored uv resins – make your own by adding a little mica powder, alcohol ink or other resin colorant to the resin before pouring. For a truly one-of-a-kind creation, add small objects, such as beads, crystals, or glitter. The thing to remember is that you want to seal any porous objects with resin before encapsulating, to prevent air bubbles in your finished piece.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I lower the lights in my workshop or studio so the resin doesn’t start curing during the working time?
You don’t have to lower the lights, but you want to work diligently as soon as you dispense any UV Cure Clear Resin from the bottle. Make sure you work in a well-ventilated area indoors. Do not attempt to use this resin in sunlight, or to dispense it near any UV light source because it will heat up and begin to cure in seconds.
Can I just put my piece in the sun to cure, instead of using a UV lamp or UV flashlight?
Yes, you can put molds filled with TotalBoat UV Cure Clear Resin in the sun to cure, instead of using an artificial UV light source.
Is TotalBoat UV Cure Clear Resin an epoxy product?
No, TotalBoat UV Resin is an acrylic urethane resin that requires UV light or sunlight to cure. It’s a one-part product that requires no measuring or mixing, and it cures in minutes, rather than hours or days.
What can I use to tint TotalBoat UV Cure Clear Resin?
You can tint TotalBoat UV Cure Clear Resin with many different types of colorants, including mica powders, glitter, alcohol ink pigments, universal tints, and pigment dispersions. Add a little bit of color and mix in thoroughly until you get the desired color. Do not use any water-based pigments or dyes.
How much tint should I add to UV Clear Resin?
A little tint goes a long way. Adding too much of the colorant may require a much longer time to cure, or if the colorant is too concentrated, the resin may remain tacky. Only add as much tint as needed to achieve the desired color. Always perform a test with any colorants before attempting to use them in your final project.
Does TotalBoat UV Resin have a harsh odor like some other UV cure resins do?
Before curing, TotalBoat UV Cure Resin has a slight odor, which becomes a little stronger as the resin cures under UV light or sunlight. But this odor dissipates quickly, once the resin cures. For your safety, work indoors in a well-ventilated area, and wear proper personal protection.
Are batteries included with the UV Flashlight that comes with TotalBoat UV Cure Clear Resin?
Batteries are not included. The UV Flashlight requires three AAA batteries.
