Thanks for the reply Carol. I had shown my customer the site and that information. She tells me that without seeing the certificate, or copy of, that shows your product with that compliance, the information on the website can be falsified.
Apparently my customer got ahold of another resin crafter and they are saying the same thing. This is becoming a mess. Anyhoo, thanks again for the response.
No, I will not stop using it as I believe you guys follow that compliance.

Let me see what I can do for you, I am sure we have falsified nothing. We don't have an FDA approval certificate... the chemicals in the formulation are all FDA compliant IF it is measured, mixed, and cured properly according to direction.
Hello I just started using Alumilite amazing clear cast for tumblers like 2 days ago. While applying the alumilite I use the blue nitrile gloves(double up on gloves) and spread the alumilite with my hand. The cup is then placed on a tumbler turner and in the morning it is dry and hard. I wanted to know
1. if it is safe to touch the cup after 24hrs with your hands?
2. If the cup is still sticky and some epoxy from the cup accidentally gets on your hands, is it ok to wash hands with soap to remove and does this remove it?
3. How long does it take the cup to completely cure?
4. How long should you wait before washing the cup with soap and water?
5. After applying epoxy should the cups be placed outside while they cure? I have been applying epoxy in the apartment in front of the open patio door to let air circulate and with a face mask.
I'm new to the forum and have a few quick questions, the first one on FDA has been answered!
I am making a large walnut river table 11' x 4' x 2.5' which will require around around 16 gallons to complete the pour. I'm not sure what to pour such a large area with, polyester or polyplopine I'd like to be able to machine and glass polish level with the wood after. The shop is well ventilated and the temperature is a constant 75-80 almost year round, its Florida after all.
If anyone has completed a table pour or has any advise or recommendations on what Alumilite product to use, I'd love to hear from you.

If you go to Bartopcoating.com there is a Coverage Calculator there based on dimensions of the table you are wanting to coat. Our Bar Top Coating/Amazing Clear Cast is used for multiple coating applications, both on River Tables and tumblers. The Amazing Clear Cast is not as polishable as the Clear Urethane's used for turning.
In Florida care needs to be taken with humidity in the liquid state and some care with excessive heat. It can soften if constant exposure to heat, not melt but it could soften.
