Re: Safe Resins for Model Production?

Westerfield <westerfield@...>

Victor - If you want to be really safe and can use structures with thick walls, use dental plaster. The cheapest resin and easiest to work with is polyester. However, it is the least safe. It outgasses styrene monomer which in large quantities can have many adverse health effects. Urethanes are harder to work with but are safer. The quicker the cure, the safer because there is less chance of breathing the fumes. But use ventilation with any resin. - Al Westerfield

This is a little topic but its seem there are folks in this group that
are in the know here.

I actually am not interested in rolling stock but structures.

Thanks in advance
