Dual Purpose Resin for Marble and Onyx

VICAST A540

Vicast A540 is a pre-promoted, non-thixotropic, polyester resin formulation created for use in cultured marble, granite and onyx applications.

Applications

This product is specifically designed to give good demold times in marble applications while maintaining good color in onyx type castings, enabling the use of only one resin for both marble and onyx. It can be used for both flat and contoured molds.

Benefits

  • The cure rate of Vicast A540 in marble applications is similar to that of a standard marble resin when used with the appropriate type and level of MEKP catalyst.
  • The color of Vicast A540 is superior in a marble matrix, it also gives a bright, clean translucency in matrixes filled Vicast A540-DMC-13 has excellent green strength for effective demold times in cultured marble and onyx.
  • While Vicast A540 is supplied at a high viscosity to facilitate maximum versatility in making small and large parts, it is also available at other viscosities and gel times.
