Default Cast Blank Material Cross Reference

May have missed it but did not find a cross reference of the different types of cast blanks and how they cross the materials.

For example: I believe Inlace Acrylester and Rhino are similar. Are they made of PR or something else?

Which brands/types actually are PR?

I know Alumilite is Alumilite but are their “brands” made of Alumilite that are called something else?

I expect their is enough knowledge on here to figure it out, then I could combine into a list for site. Tell what you know.

Inlace Acrylester and Rhinoplastic are both polyester resin, but with differing workability.

Alumilite is a company that markets a variety of urethane resins. Alumilite Clear, Water Clear, White, and RC3 Black (et. al.) have been used to make commercially available pen blanks by a variety of casters. Again, the various resins have different turning characteristics.

There are also 2-part and UV-cured epoxies, and quite a range of other synthetic materials on the market.

See Not all plastics are "acrylic" for more information.

Thanks for the link, Eric. Your previous info and the reference link will take me a long way to creating what I am after.

Alumilite is a company name. One of their resins we use is a polyurethane resin and the other is an epoxy. Just saying Alumilite does not distinguish between the two. Just saying.
Do a good turn daily!
