The perfect epoxy resin for your river table project

GlassCast 50 was developed specifically with resin river tables in mind, offering superb clarity, outstanding non-yellowing properties, optimum cure speed and excellent toughness.

It's no surprise that GlassCast 50 has been the #1 choice for thousands of professional furniture makers, including recognised expert's like ManorWood, for the last 3 years; there is no better epoxy resin for river tables.

This water-clear, UV resistant epoxy casting resin has been developed specifically to meet the demands of casting in thick section; especially in contact with wood. Its advanced formula self-degasses to remove air bubbles whilst its best-in-class UV blockers ensure your river table will still look fantastic for years to come; especially important if you're selling your tables commercially.

Why choose GlassCast 50 for your river table project?

  • Incredibly clear - No epoxy beats it for clarity
  • Unbeatable UV stability - Best-in-class with a 3 year track record
  • Natural air bubble release - Almost zero trapped air without degassing
  • Highly machinable - Cuts, sands and polishes beautifully
  • Solvent free - No VOCs, no odour, zero shrinkage
  • Money back guarantee - If you're not 100% happy

Maximum Pouring Depth

GlassCast 50's slow curing formulation allows it to be poured into wood (a highly insulating environment) at depths of up to 25mm per pour. For a typical river table, this usually means pouring in two layers over consecutive days.

Several of our commercial customers, including the very popular Youtube channel ManorWood, do use GlassCast 50 to cast 50mm river tables in a single pour, however - this can only be done by setting up forced cooling (such as fans) over the project and so should only be attempted by expert users.

Tints, Pigments and Effects

GlassCast 50 is water clear many river tables are made with the resin left perfectly clear, but - if you're looking to give your river table a different look then the options are almost limitless.

The most popular ways to modify the appearance of the resin in a river table are translucent tints, metallic-effect powders and solid colour pigments but if you really want to personalise your river table then just about anything can be added to the resin from pebbles, stones and shells through to photos, keepsakes, poker chips, or even an old pair of jeans!

  • Translucent Tints - See through tints can easily be achieved simply by adding a drop or two of our CULR Universal Pigments to your GlassCast 50 resin. This translucent appearance is similar to a stained glass effect and still allows light to pass through the table, enhancing the appearance of depth. CULR pigments are available in a wide range of colours including Indigo Blue for a classic blue river, or Jet Black for a see-through smoked glassed effect.
  • Metallic-Effect Powders - Sparkling, brightly coloured metallic effects can be created by adding your choice of metallic SHIMR powders to the resin which is then stirred and agitated to create ripples and swirling patterns.
  • Solid Colour Pigments - Opaque, solid colours can be created by adding CULR Universal Pigment to the resin at around 1%. Solid colours, particularly black or white, create bold contrast with the wood and result in more classically elegant furniture.
  • Encapsulations - To really put your unique stamp on a river table it is possible to encapsulate just about any objects within the resin, such as pebbles, shells, toys, trainers, badges, even car parts! The only limit is your imagination.
  • Glow in the Dark Powders - Photoluminescent powders, often in blue or green but also available in other colours, can be mixed into the resin to create a river that glows in the dark.

Yes you can layer the resin in that way. The ideal method is to pour the second and any subsequent layers when the first layer has become firm but is still tacky. At this stage no further preparation is needed and you are likely to get an almost invisible join line.

If you need to wait until after the first layer has fully cured, then the resin will need a key with sand paper and a thorough clean before pouring the next layer.

Yes GlassCast 3 can be used in this way. If you are making a river table and want a thin layer of resin right over the top of the wood as well, then using GlassCast 3 in this way over the top of the GlassCast 50 will give a smoother finish on the surface.

I've been using glass cast 50 since the beginning and have now produced nearly 20 river tables and similar projects. I tested a few other resins in the beginning and settled on glass cast 50 because of the cure speed and bubble free finish. Other resins I tested for river tables were much too slow to cure. One took a week to cure and still felt too soft to machine properly. Great product.

TOP PRODUCT!! have used Glasscast 50 for 3 river tables now, they have all worked perfectly and great technical support from Warren who helped me figure out a problem I was having with tiny air bubbles (was caused by jiffy mixer - dont use one!). Great product, great service.

brilliant product, really happy with the end result, did exactly what it said on the tin. only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it would have been better if I could buy a 2.5kg kit, the 5 was too big and the 1kg is too small.

I have been working with resin for quite a while now, using various resin products, with varied results. After trying GlassCast, I have found a product I'm sticking with. Easy to work with, easy to finish. Night and day from others I have used. Highly recommended.

I use a combination of GlassCast 50 for the deep pours I do and GlassCast 3 for finishing and flood coats. I love the products and the service I receive from the team. A score of 5 is not high enough for the quality and service you get from the team!
