Working with glass clear casting resins.
The resins used are actually even clearer than glass, totally waterproof, very strong and hardwearing. The incorporation of encased metals offers not only great strength but it looks very beautiful at first hand. The resin pieces have been very difficult to photograph and still do not fully reflect the true qualities of objects appearing to float in mid-air.
In order to cast glass clear resins on a large scale the conditions have to be absolutely perfect. It is a very precise process and there is no one else doing castings on this scale to this level anywhere. It is unique to Jaz Asbury Metal Design. You may see acrylic castings (such as barbed wire in loo seats ,etc) but this can only be done on a huge volume production basis.
The limits of applications for this recently perfected technique of using totally clear resins are endless. Tables, chairs, doors, windows, security windows, partition walls, friezes, lighting and stair treads are some of the most obvious applications. The resins can also be curved to some degree. Development in how much it can be curved is ongoing.
Whatever resins are used the outer layer of all resin work is always coated with a very hard resin which makes scratching very difficult. However, for applications such as treads for public stairs the clear resins are not recommended. For private use, especially in houses where footwear is normally removed at the door, the treads would last forever and in the unlikely event of a scratch appearing it can be polished out easily or re-coated.
