General Purpose Polyester Resin Crystic 2-8500PA is an orthophthalic polyester resin with low styrene emissions which quickly saturates reinforcements. Tailored for non-critical and industrial uses, this resin is unsuitable for boat building, applications requiring chemical resistance, or for items in contact with food.
For optimal performance, General Purpose Polyester Resin Crystic 2-8500PA resin should be brought to room temperature (18°C - 20°C). Mix it thoroughly, either manually or using a low shear mixer to prevent air entrapment, and then let it sit briefly to restore its thixotropic properties.
We recommend using Catalyst M (alternatively Butanox M50) as the catalyst, added at a 1% ratio to the resin. Ensure complete blending of the catalyst into the resin, preferably using a low shear mechanical stirrer.

Perfect for me
20 October 2022  | 

I've been using this resin for years and find it very easy to work with and always gives excellent and consistant results. I've used it way beyond it's shelf life with no issues too. Delivery is always fast from East Coast Fiber as well so I wouldn't go anywhere else.
