GlassCast 10 is a water-clear, UV resistant clear casting resin developed for smaller or thinner castings such as jewellery, 3D resin-art, gaps/knots/wood inlays and more. It can be used to make parts up to around 10mm thick in a single pour.
Because GlassCast 10 has been developed as acastingresin and not a coating resin, it remains water-clear even in thick sections.

Before purchase, storage or use you must read the safety and technical data. Having said that, GlassCast 10 is incredibly easy-to-use and delivers fantastic results under a wide range of conditions.
