Default Liquid Diamonds Resin

I did some extensive testing on the product for the distributor, Susan Putman. It threads very well and is the clearest resin I have ever used. I have done just about everything with it you could imagine. The resin is completely odor free and is very thin so it works very well when making hybrids and embedded items. It has a much longer cure time so it good for casting that need more working time. It is superior in all ways to PR.

Its a great resin, I have done all types of casting as tests but have really loved it for tube in clear casting. I even did a kitless in it from a rod and t worked great, Good stuff worth a try.

I ordered some and received it today. I'm looking forward to trying it out. I like hearing that it is odorless. I hope it works as well as I've heard it does.

Just got some and mixed up a small 15ml batch and no odor at all not even the normal 5 min epoxy glue smell.

Also super thin like water.

Epoxy resins are notorious for yellowing. Any info on LD and yellowing from sources other than the manufacturer?
Do a good turn daily!
