Our Low Viscosity (LV) Epoxy Resin is the first resin in our MAS Epoxies 2:1 non-blushing system.  It can be paired with three different hardeners and mixed with FLAG Resin so you can customize your epoxy to your unique needs.  LV is a great laminating resin and wood epoxy product because of it’s clear color and inherent strength.

Description

LV Low Viscosity Epoxy Resin

  • Formulated as a wood epoxy resin, but is compatible with a range of substrates
  • No messy wash downs due to non-blushing properties
  • Easily laminates large areas of fiberglass or carbon cloth when paired with Slow Hardener
  • Ideal for saturation coating because of self-leveling properties
  • Low viscosity epoxy is compatible with vacuum bagging applications
  • Excellent sealant when used without fiberglass or carbon cloth
  • Clear finish means you get the structure and finish you want with one product

Wood Epoxy Resin

Low viscosity resin has great results with any wooden project because it was originally designed for wooden boat building.  Combined with any of the non-blushing hardeners you get the benefits of beauty and strength all in one application.  LV is sent out with each Chesapeake Light Craft Kit and used by Sam Devlin in his design-build projects.  It isn’t just for boat building though, you can use Low Viscosity resin for furniture, woodworking and even wooden artwork.

    It's entirely depending on the volume used, the air temp and what speed hardener you used.

    To use a stain on an epoxy project, we typically recommend using a water-based stain under the epoxy clear coat.  Be sure the stain is fully dry before coating work with epoxy.  It’s also a good idea to first test your stain for compatibility with epoxy using the cross hatch test:  Apply the stain a scrap piece of wood.  Let it dry.  Apply the epoxy over the stain and let it sit overnight.  Next day cut a tic-tac-toe image into the epoxy with a shop knife.  Place a piece of Duct tape on each of the nine squares.  Try to remove the epoxy.  If it comes off easily without any wood chards then there is an adhesion problem and will not work, but if it comes off with bits of wood attached, the epoxy is penetrating the stain and will adhere well.  Some customers have had success using oil-based stain.  Three oil-based stains that I know have been used successfully with epoxy resin in the past are Ace Hardware Great Finishes Wood Stain, Old Masters Wiping Stain and Pratt & Lambert Tonetic Interior Wood Stains.  However, the formula for a given stain can change at any time and we always recommend performing the cross hatch test on a scrap piece of wood as described above when using a new stain for the first time. 

  4. Are your epoxy systems, such as LV, Flag, and hardeners safe for food contact when fully cured?

    To be FDA approved for primary or secondary food contact a finished assembly must be made with approved substances and undergo extraction testing for qualification.  MAS Epoxies 2:1 and 5:1 epoxy systems are not FDA approved for secondary food contact as they contain components that would not pass extraction testing. In case you are not familiar with the terms primary and secondary food contact, primary food contact requirements apply to food additives, and secondary food contact requirements apply to food storage containers and preparation surfaces.

    You certainly can, a lot of people like using Mixol Pigments, you can also use a small drop of acrylic craft paint, alcohol ink or mica powder depending on the desired effect you're going for

    Q Can I use this epoxy over oil-based enamel? answer now
    Asked by Charlotte Hodgson on September 7, 2020 12:57 pm
    Answered by the admin

    Although it's not recommended it can be done. You will need to let the enamel fully dry, if possible lightly scuff up the surface with sandpaper and then apply a seal coat or two of epoxy. Seal coats are very thing layers of epoxy that will help ensure none of the oils cause orange peel or fish eyes in the final flood coat. We do recommend doing a small scale test to see how it reacts before taking on a large scale one.

  1. Hailey Nolin

    I love this resin mixed with the medium hardener! Perfect for if you want to do two pours in one day safely. Then, pouring ArtPro over it as a finishing touch gives it the best look!

  2. Kat Cornelius (verified owner)

    I dig this viscosity for all of my art sculpting projects over the Art Pro. A different curing atmosphere as it is a 2:1 mix with customizable hardening times!
