Nerpa Polymers Coating Resin
Nerpa Polymers Coating Resin is designed for coatings, crafts, arts and jewelry applications. It is formulated to be a convenient 1:1 by volume mixing ratio system with a working time of 25 minutes. Nerpa Coating Epoxy Resin 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 and other applications
- Two-stage UV protection
- Optical Clarity
- Resistant to blushing
- Made in Canada

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.
Nerpa Epoxy Resin is made responsibly
Nerpa Polymers uses a complex approach to manufacturing our resins. They employ sustainable methods for producing their resins, such as a zero chemical waste policy with no solvent-free resin manufacturing and equipment maintenance. Nerpa 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.
Nerpa uses a post-manufacturing treatment process to accelerate their Coating Epoxy’s reactivity and cure speed without using potentially toxic nonylphenol and catalysts in our product. Read more about nonylphenol and why they decided not to use it in their 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.
