AOC LLC’s (Collierville, Tenn.) new Vicast A830 casting resin for cultured marble applications reportedly saves users up to 10 percent on material costs because the resin allows significantly higher filler loadings at the same styrene monomer content as traditional cultured marble casting resins. The nonthixotropic, low-shrink resin series incorporates dicyclopentodiene (DCPD) chemistry, ranges in vis-cosity from 150 cps to 250 cps and is engineered for use with marble-quality calcium carbonate or spe-cific lightweight fillers. Designed for hand batch mixing, auto dispensing and continuous metering/dispensing (autocasting), the product is prepromoted for room-temperature cure using methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP) initiator and has a shelf life of 90 days.
