Aka-Resin Liquid Epoxy is a clear liquid epoxy resin that has to be mixed with a hardener, either Aka-Cure Quick or Aka-Cure Slow. Each hardener provides different advantages. Which epoxy hardener to choose depends on your requirements to the final mount.
Aka-Cure Slow is an epoxy curing agent (epoxy hardener) that provide the lowest possible shrinkage and thus great edge retention. It is suitable for vacuum impregnation and heat sensitive samples. Mixed with the epoxy resin, Aka-Resin Liquid Epoxy, it cures in 8 – 24 hours at 22 °C.
Aka-Cure Quick is an epoxy curing agent providing very hard, transparent mounts and great edge retention with low shrinkage. It is suitable for vacuum impregnation of porous samples and cures in 30 minutes at 80 °C. The short curing time makes it ideal when very short preparation times are required. For epoxy mounting of very large samples, Aka-Cure Quick can be used with a room temperature curing overnight followed by a post cure at 80 °C. This low temperature curing results in large mounts with negligible shrinkage.
