It is durable, odourless, and resistant to galvanic baths, making it an excellent product for setting metalwork or protecting engravings. It catalyses at warm temperatures and can be worked for 40 minutes in small quantities.
It takes 24 hours to air cure or one hour in the oven. Epolac can be smoothed with a sander or sandpaper, re-polished, or worked with a “cathedral” glass effect. It is unsurpassed for its tenacity to grinding. Epolac is safe on the wearer’s skin.
