12 month shelf life if stored in 75 degrees or lower and out of direct sunlight!
Use of more than 1oz/gal of Alumilite dye is not recommended. Too much will not improve your results and could over activate your resin.
Use of aniline dye may affect cure times. It may be necessary to cure at 220F and may take a bit longer than usual.
Stabilization is a process. Resin is just one part of the process. If your results are not as desired, get in touch with us. There may be other issues or ways to improve your results.
The best formula I've tried
This stabilizing resin performs perfectly in every way. The new, less bubble-y formula allows me to do larger batches and increase production. It soaks quickly and cures well!
Great product and customer support.
The quality of this product is only surpassed by the quality of service you receive from Ken and staff. I’m a repeat customer and will continue to be one. The material is fantastic to work with- buy it, you will be satisfied!
Great resin. Great service.
I’ve been using SOS-726 for the past year and really like it. I feel it works faster and penetrates more evenly than Cactus Juice due to it being slightly thinner. The same goes for 3.0 with the added benefit of less foam than both. I worry less about my flasks over flowing. My customers really enjoy how well it polishes so I’d say everybody wins.
I reached out on Facebook with some questions about 3.0 and they were externally helpful and quick to reply. Would highly recommend Shed Life.
Here’s to another year and many more gallons of resin.
I really liked the 726 stabilizer and then this came out. It bubbles very little. When I start up my vacuum chamber I can slam the valve shut and not worry about bubbles going to my vacuum pump. The UV dye is a cool addition where you can flash a UV light at your, uh, wood, and not wonder if it’s done. The temp required for cure is about 220 so if you’ve got a thick block make sure you have ample room in your oven to keep the piece away from the elements. The higher temp is my only complaint. Other than that Ken ( Shed Life) has been a joy to work with. His customer service is above and beyond what one would expect. Deal with confidence.
