Epoxy ultraviolet resin It is a material with special properties that allow it to apply it in jewelry and in the manufacture of handmade products.


UV resin – This is a colorless gel, frozen under the influence of ultraviolet. It includes only one component, so it does not need to be mixed with a catalyst. Resin can be painted with powder paints and with a paste. In this way, the desired color is obtained. It takes 1-10 minutes to frost, the speed of solidification depends on the density of the layer and the amount of pigment used. Before exposure to ultraviolet rays, the material remains liquid. UV resin reminds gel lacquer, they have an identical solidification process. Guide the rules for creating a manicure with the use of gel varnish when working with a resin.

The main advantages of ultraviolet resin:

  • Fast frost;
  • the possibility of applying thin layers;
  • transparency;
  • High strength of the coating.

Ultraviolet resin saves time, allows you to pour a lot of layers in minutes. The composition does not need to be breeding, it is fully ready for use, it is probable to allow an error with proportions.

Such a resin does not spoil the moldes, because it, in contrast to epoxy, do not have to keep in them for days.

Use of use

From ordinary epoxy resin Ultraviolet is characterized by a narrower area of ​​use. Most often it is used in jewelry when creating various jewelry. This material uses and when conducting master classes. Based on it create original jewelry. It gives the opportunity to be implemented in creativity, to implement unusual ideas.

How to use?

By consistency UV resin resembles a thick gel. If there is a need to obtain a more liquid substance, it is heated using a hair dryer. Packing with a resin can also be placed in a microwave for a few seconds or placed on the battery.

Before using the composition, you need to prepare all the necessary equipment and consumables: ultraviolet lamp, paint, decor elements.

  1. At the first stage, the surface is cleaned with alcohol, degreasing it and removing dust.
  2. Dye in small quantities are mixed with colorless resin. For mixing, you can use the metal or plastic wand.
  3. After that, add paint to obtain the desired color. It is important not to overdo it with the amount of dye – it can negatively affect the frozen resin.
  4. Much depends on the selected design – in some cases there is a need for temporary “edges” to curb the composition and prevent its distribution beyond the boundaries of the product (you can use narrow scotch).
  5. The first resin layer is applied to the base (it should be thin) and expect its solidification. In the subsequent layers can also be a dye, but if several shades are used, each layer must be poured and dried separately.
  6. It is necessary to work carefully and leisurely. Hurry fraught with the appearance of bubbles. Heating the resin surface for contact with ultraviolet can cause lifting bubbles to the surface.
  7. After completing all the prescriptions, the product is placed under the ultraviolet lamp for a couple of minutes. If the dye has already been added to the resin, it is necessary to increase the time interval.
  8. It is important to remember that the darker the shade, the longer the substance you need to irradiate ultraviolet.
  9. New layers are added on top of frozen until the required height and thickness will be achieved.

UV resin is an easy-to-use material that gives you the opportunity to implement various creative ideas. It is in demand when conducting master classes, you can experiment with it in creativity, create original decorations with your own hands.
