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.
