Pressure Pot For Resin Casting
A pressure pot for resin casting manufactured by Burhani Hardware And Fittings is required for bubble-free and air-trap-free resin castings. This is especially critical in creating clear resin castings applications, as trapped air can affect the appearance of a crystal clear casting. The BHFTECH Pressure Pot for resin is designed for use in applying pressure to force air out of resin and to force resin into thin sections of a mold. This eliminates air bubbles and air traps in the cured castings
Perfect Pressure Pot for Resin Casting Application
This is the best pressure pot for resin casting includes a gauge and all the other pneumatic fittings, valves and gauges . However, you will also need to purchase an air compressor with pressure pot for resin casting of at least 3 H.P. and a ¼-inch adapter or coupling to attach the air compressor to the pot.
