Coating Epoxy High Viscosity (Original Coating Epoxy)
So beautifully thick so much less dripping
Once you start using this you will not settle for anything less
One of the things holding me back from resin work was the smell. I could wear a respirator while doing the work but it would take many hours for the smell to dissipate and I couldn’t subject the house to that. Randomly came across Nerpa recently, was keen to try it after seeing one of my mentors reviews. Locally owned? Yes, please. I ordered a “small” 1L kit of the High Viscosity Coating resin. It arrived well within the estimated timeline and I love the branded box.
I’ve tried the resin a few times now and I’m still delighted with it. It covers my pours when other resins didn’t, bubbles dissipate nicely, and ii got crystal clear results.
I do not have one bad thing to say about this resin.
Nerpa Polymers Coating Epoxy is designed for coatings, crafts, arts and jewelry applications. We formulated it to be a convenient 1:1 by volume mixing ratio system with a working time of 25 minutes. Our Coating Epoxy is made responsibly with bio-based content from recycled glycerol. A medium-high viscosity, similar to liquid honey, makes it easy to achieve thick, hard, durable coats. This unique thick consistency in a liquid state is also ideal for creating amazing patterns in your resin art project with Nerpa Liquid Colourants, as it offers more freedom for colour manipulation and blending.
- No nonylphenol content. Safe for home use
- Simple 1:1 mixing ratio
- Slightly longer working time for stress-free resin art, geode and other applications
- Two-stage synergistic UV protection
- Increased heat resistance
- Optical Clarity
- Resistant to blushing

For the best experience, we recommend warming up your epoxy kit to 22-27°C before use. You can also use a propane torch or heat gun to remove the air bubbles.
Our epoxy is made responsibly.
Nerpa Polymers uses a complex approach to manufacturing our resins. Our company employs sustainable methods for producing our resins, such as a zero chemical waste policy with no solvent-free resin manufacturing and equipment maintenance. Our Coating Epoxy is made responsibly using a by-product of bio-diesel production - plant-based glycerol. Coating Epoxy resin contains 26% of annually renewable carbon. Learn more.
We use a post-manufacturing treatment process to accelerate our Coating Epoxy's reactivity and cure speed without using potentially toxic nonylphenol and catalysts in our product. Read more about nonylphenol and why we decided not to use it in our blog.
Nerpa Polymers Coating Epoxy is stabilized with a two-step complimentary UV protection sequence. It is based on preventing initial damage to cured resin by absorbing harsh UV light and not letting it reach the molecular structure, followed by the second step of neutralization of unwanted radicals capable of damaging the molecular network.
