Anyone tried finishing WSF with SmoothCast 300 or other similar casting plastics? I want to try because it has a fast cure time (20 minutes) but I've heard it gets real hot when it reacts (up to 100c) and the WSF page says it has a heat resistance of up to 80c, was wondering if anyone has tried it or recommends for/against it.

i have limited experience with fast cast. but i believe it might depend on how much resin you are using.

small amount = less heat generated

(i cant see any info in the tech sheet on it. so it probably varies too much between different jobs)

i imagine that if you got something with a slower curing time the heat wouldnt be as much of an issue.

any chance you could upload a picture ?

or expected volume?
