Measure equal parts by volume (eg, 100mls : 100mls)
Mix for 3 minutes, or until combined, scraping sides and bottom of vessel
Open time of approx. 80 mins at 25 degrees Celsius
24 hour cure time
Full cure at 7 days
A kit includes equal parts Resin and Hardener Part A and Part B
To achieve optimal results, blend equal volumes (such as 100mls : 100mls) for three minutes until thoroughly mixed, making sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the container. Apply this mixture effortlessly onto your desired surface area. It will take around 80 minutes at a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius for the applied material to fully dry. For maximum effectiveness, allow a complete cure by waiting seven days. However, note that after just one day (24 hours), you can handle your creation with caution as it continues to harden and gain more durability.

Colouring OceanCote with Pigments
The use of any Just Resin pigment can be used in conjunction with this product.
Pigment pastes <10%
Pigment powders <20%
Considerations When Using OceanCote
Adjusting the resin to hardener ratio does not affect the cure time.
To minimise air bubble formation, stir the substance gently.
Improper mixing will result in curing problems.
Allowing combined epoxy to sit in a mixing container for an extended duration can speed up the curing process and trigger an exothermic reaction.
If the relative humidity surpasses 80%, moisture absorption may occur on the surface of the cured item, resulting in a less glossy finish. In such conditions, we recommend using a fully controlled environment for coating purposes.
It can be stored for up to 12 months in its original containers, tightly sealed with the lid, in a dry dark room/cupboard at 15-30ºC, out of direct sunlight. Ensure that the materials are conditioned at 25-30ºC to reduce viscosity and facilitate air release if they have been stored at temperatures below 15oC for prolonged periods. Crystallisation may occur if the materials have been stored at temperatures below 15ºC.
Safety Considerations When Using OceanCote Epoxy
Please refer to the Materials Safety Data Sheet before use, and for more information.
What makes OceanCote Different From DiamondCote?
Compared to DiamondCote, OceanCote has a higher viscosity. The OceanCote product is excellent for lacing and cell effects, but DiamondCote has greater air release properties, as a result of its viscosity difference. Due to its longer pot life of 80 minutes, OceanCote also has a longer cure time.

What Are The Benefits Of Using A High Viscosity Resin In Resin Art Projects?
Compared to low viscosity resins, high viscosity resins offer a number of advantages in resin art projects. A high viscosity resin does not flow as much and cures slower, so you can build thicker layers and achieve a more three-dimensional look with them. They also typically cure slower, so you have more time to work with them. One of the reasons you might want to use a high viscosity resin is to create a more even and consistent texture throughout your resin art piece. High viscosity resins are also less likely to run or drip, so they are ideal for working on multilayered artworks of high depth. Finally, they are easier to pour and work with compared to their low viscosity counterparts since they have a thicker consistency.
