Resin Curing in 2 Hours!

Amazing Hack to Quickly Cure Puduo 1:1 Epoxy Resin

What is Quick Resin Curing?

Quick Resin Curing is a quick way of curing epoxy resin. When using a 1:1 ratio epoxy resin, it typically takes 8-10 hours to cure your product. This is quick compared to other epoxies which can take 24-72 hours before you can remove it from your mold. 2:1 and 3:1 epoxy is also available which typically take 48+ hours to cure. We will only be discussing the Puduo 1:1 Epoxy Resin in this blog.

A common mistake made by artists is not accurately measuring their product. Too much of Part B can lead to a runaway reaction which may ruin your project, and waste your time. To avoid this, make sure you measure carefully to ensure that you have the right amount of each part.

How Epoxy Resin Works

In epoxy resin, there is a component A and component B. When combined and mixed, they react to create a clear solid. This reaction takes 8-10 hours when you use Puduo Epoxy Resin. This epoxy formula is a 1:1 ratio epoxy. Puduo also carries a 2:1 resin for deep pours, and an anti-yellowing epoxy for outdoor applications. The anti-yellowing has an 8-10 hour cure time, and the deep pour 2:1 has a 24-72 hour cure time. 

Once the epoxy has cured, it can be removed from the silicone mold and allowed to fully cure, on a flat surface, for 24-72 hours. The curing process is affected by the environment. At lower temperatures, curing will take longer than usual. Whereas high temperatures reduce the curing time.

Quick Curing Resin Projects in 2 Hours*

By introducing heat to your project, you will cure your project quicker. This can be done with a heating pad or a curing machine. I can’t recommend a heating pad because they vary widely and if you get it wrong, it will ruin your project. Luckily Puduo has solved this problem for us. The new Puduo Curing Machine will soon be here!

Here’s what they have told us so far:
1) In tests, they were able to remove their projects from the mold in 2 hours.
2) The unit is big enough to house a cup turner.
3) Adjustable temperature range from 95 – 160 F
4) Adjustable timer from 1 – 300 minutes
5) Adjustable fan for cooling after curing has completed

They have received a prototype and are currently testing it to see how it performs using different times and temperatures. They will use this data to come up with an informed  instruction sheet so that we all know how to use it effectively. We will keep you updated on this exciting product!

Is This Product Suitable for Your Project?

This product will help you be more productive by giving you the ability to quickly produce your ideas and create as much as possible within your available time.  If you want to get more done, this product is perfect for you.

Another plus to this product is that you will be able to use the curing space for more projects throughout the day. We have a small space available for curing, and when we are working on many projects, we will have to stop because there’s no more room to cure items. This will free up your curing space quicker and allow you to move on to your next project.

*Note: Only the Puduo 1:1 has been tested so far. The 2 hour curing time applies to the 1:1 formula. We will update you with the curing times for the other formulas as we test it.

Puduo Anti-Yellowing Formula Has Arrived!

3X Anti-Yellowing Puduo Epoxy Resin

Puduo Anti-Yellowing Epoxy Resin is a new product on the market that has been gaining popularity among DIY enthusiasts. It is a two-component epoxy resin that comes in a 1:1 ratio and can be mixed easily. The UV resistance of this epoxy resin makes it perfect for outdoor projects. Puduo Epoxy Resin is known for its easy to use formula, casting, and crafting properties. When mixed together, the two components form a clear liquid which can be used with silicone molds, live edge river tables, suncatchers, jewelry, home décor, and much more.

To mix Puduo Anti-Yellowing Epoxy Resin you will need:

Puduo Anti-Yellowing Part A – This is the Resin

Puduo Anti-Yellowing Part B – This is the hardener

Gloves – Your choice of material, just protect your hands.

Mixing Sticks (Included) – Take care of these silicone sticks by wiping them with a paper towel when done.

Mixing Cups (Included) – The included cups measure 100 ML max. For larger cups, please click here

Pigments (optional) – Choice of pigments can include: Glow in the dark, resin tint, resin dye, resin paste, glitter, or any other item you want to use that is completely dry. Water/moisture is not recommended and can ruin your project

Silicone Mold (Optional)For more molds, please click here

Mixing Puduo Resin Like A Pro:

1) Measure the amounts equally using a 1:1 ratio. For example 40 ml of part a to 40 ml of part b. Note: I do not recommend trying to mix smaller than 80 ml total. This is because it makes it too easy to get the measurements just a little bit off.

2) Mix thoroughly. This does not mean to only mix for 3 minutes and call it good. This means to mix the product until it is perfectly clear. Make sure that you get the sides on the bottom of the cup really well.

3) Pour your mixture into another cup. Get as much of the product out of the cup as you can. Then mix the new mixture again. Mix it for approximately a minute.

4) Split the mixture into as many cups as you have pigments. For instance, if you are only using red, black, and clear, split it into three cups. Mix the pigments in well. Then let the product set for approximately 15 minutes to release all of the bubbles and begin its exothermic reaction.

*The mixing instructions are the same for all Puduo Epoxy products.

Puduo Hand Cleaner Vs. Rubbing Alcohol



The Complete Guide to Resin Cleaning Agents

One of the most important aspects of working with resins, of any form, is being able to safely and effectively remove it from your skin, tools, and molds. Safely removing products from your skin is by far the most important point to consider. Rubbing alcohol, Acetone, and Hand Scrubs are the most common cleaning agents.

The most widely used cleaning agent for epoxy resin is rubbing alcohol. This, and Acetone, are not recommended for the same reasons. First, both are flammable, which means that it poses a danger if you are working with an open flame or near an open flame. Secondly, they can dry out your skin and cause irritation or allergic reactions. Finally, both work by thinning the resin so that they can be rinsed off. This could pose a hazard if absorbed into the skin.

A better option is a hand scrub such as Puduo Hand Scrub. Puduo Hand scrub works by adhering to the resin and coating the particles so that they can be easily rinsed off with water. This product contains fine abrasive particles which work with the liquid to lift the resin off of your skin. Rinse with water and your hands will be clean with a fresh scent!

Puduo Hand Scrub works on your tools and molds too! The surfaces of your tools and molds should be free from dirt and other contaminants, otherwise the resin can become contaminated with particles, and may not adhere to the mold properly. In order to maintain cleanliness, a cleaning agent should be used after every use.

Puduo Hand Scrub is available now on the PuduoFamily website and on Amazon
