Which Resin Should I choose

There are currently three resins in the GlassCast range; GlassCast 3, 10 and 50. The numbers relate to the thickness, in millimetres, that each resin is typically used at; i.e. 3mm, 10mm and 50mm.

As well as the different thicknesses, these resins are also intended for slightly different purposes. GlassCast 3 is a coating resin and has been developed to offer the smoothest, flattest surface finish possible. GlassCast 10 and 50 are casting resins, they are designed to offer the clearest, bubble-free castings possible when doing thicker pours but don't offer quite the same smooth, shiny surface finish as the GlassCast 3.
