David Johnson, our Sales Director, conducted a workshop in Turkey, focusing on the applications of ENTROPY RESINS. The event was centred around the use of biobased ENTROPY RESINS Clear Casting Epoxy.    

 

The workshop was hosted by Sema Carckci of Etap Marine, the Turkish Distributor for ENTROPY RESINS. The 25 participants engaged in various activities, such as creating River Tables, penny casting, and surfboard making.

David began the day by demonstrating the process of creating a ‘starter’ River Table using a cardboard mould, lined with Sellotape. He then moved on to more complex projects, including a five-litre volume River Table and a Tree Section table, both made with ENTROPY RESINS CCR Clear Casting Epoxy and CCS Slow Hardener.

The initial projects second pour took place four hours after the first, however as the Tree Section project had a depth of 85mm, the second pour started 12 hours later.

For the first two projects, the second pour was conducted four hours after the initial one, while for the tree section, due to its depth, the second pour was carried out 12 hours later.

David, always finding inventive solutions, utilised a paper template to craft a small surfboard. He found three pieces of polystyrene / EPS foam in a skip, which he then laminated using ENTROPY CLR Clear Laminating Epoxy and CCF Fast Hardener. To create an impressionistic representation of the French flag on the board, he used colour pigmented style accents.

As the day came to an end, each participant had used silicone ice cube trays to craft unique keyrings and jewellery. They also created detailed chess pieces from the silicone moulds. It was a day full of hands-on learning and creativity.

David expressed his excitement, stating, “It was exceptional to be surrounded by such passionate individuals who could envision the boundless potential of the product. We are genuinely thrilled about ENTROPY RESINS, its capabilities, and its prospective applications. It’s evident that it has been rapidly embraced by the surf market for laminating boards globally, and now it’s being adopted by a diverse range of creators. We are always delighted to see the innovative projects that continue to emerge!”
