RiverCast is a clear epoxy system designed specifically for woodworking casting applications. It produces ultra-clear casts with minimal bubble entrapment. Use RiverCast to make beautiful river tables or to fill large inclusions in wood substrates. For small voids, use the MirrorCast Kits T30572-T30574.
Features:
  • Fill voids up to 1.5" thick in a single pour
  • De-aerates rapidly
  • Contains no VOCs
  • Easy 2:1 mix ratio
    Physical properties:
  • Mix ration by volume: 100:50
  • VOC Content: 0g/L
  • Color: Colorless
  • Mixed viscosity: 260-290cps
  • Minimum curing temperature: 70°F (21°C)
  • Working time at 70°F: 3 hours
  • Total cubic inches for a 1.5 gallon kit: 346
    Working Conditions
    RiverCast performs best when the ambient conditions are between 70-80°F. Acclimate the wood substrate and the RiverCast Epoxy 24 hours before use. Working below the recommended temperature range will cause RiverCast to cure significantly slower and increase the likelihood of entrapping microbubbles in the finished product. Higher temperatures could cause RiverCast to cure too rapidly resulting in possible warpage or discoloration.
    Sealing
    Mix a small batch of RiverCast. Using a natural bristle brush, apply a thin coat of the epoxy to the walls of the void. After 10-15 minutes, brush on another thin coat to ensure the interface between the non-stick material and the wood substrate are coated with RiverCast. This creates a seal, preventing the RiverCast from leaking once the large pour is undertaken. Allow the seal coat to cure overnight.
    Measuring and mixing
    Measure 2 parts Resin (Part A) with 1 part Hardener (Part B) into a clean graduated mixing container. RiverCast can be mixed efficiently with a drill and paddle mixer. Avoid mixing at too high a speed, as this will introduce excessive air to the mixture. It’s advisable to scrape the sides and bottom occasionally as you mix to prevent from spoiling the cast. Unmixed material will not harden sufficiently. You’re getting close to fully mixed when the mixture has turned from cloudy to clear. Once it’s clear, it generally requires a bit more mixing to fully incorporate the components. After mixing, double check to make sure that there isn't thick buildup on the sides or bottom of the container.
    Filling
    When filling a void, pour RiverCast just to the surface. Let it settle for 5-10 minutes, then slowly add more material, slightly overfilling. The RiverCast should be domed and proud of the surface. Use only the material that freely pours from the container. Within the first 30 minutes check the fill level. If the RiverCast has dropped below the surface, carefully refill to a slightly overfilled level. Additional pours can be done once RiverCast has cured overnight. No sanding is required between pours within 72 hours. After 72 hours, lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper before adding more RiverCast.
