Details of GULFF UV Resins:
GULFF UV Resins are top-quality resin products that have been tested by renowned fly tiers.
The resin concept, with the advantages it provides, represents the best of the industry.
Due to the high-quality GULFF resin product, the resins cure quickly, and there are almost no unwanted smells produced during curing.
You can choose from several different resin products to create a range of impressive flies.
CLASSIC: for general nymph bonding and fly tying.
FATMAN BUILDER: for predator flies, fly body and head building.
NATURAL NYMPH GREEN: for realistic flies.
NATURAL NYMPH BROWN: for realistic flies.
PINK ATTACK: for rainbow trout flies, strike points and attractive bodies.
RED ALERT: for worms and strike points.
BLACK MAGIC: for heads, bodies and backs.
SHRIMP: for realistic shrimp flies.
GLOWING GREEN: for in the dark glowing nymphs, heads, bodies and strike points.
HOW TO GET QUALITY RESULTS WITH GULFF UV RESINS:
The resin should be cured by taking a UV flashlight and holding it at a distance of 1-2 cm from the surface of the resin, evenly directing the light towards each side of this surface.
With a powerful light, colourless GULFF UV resins will cure in a matter of seconds. We recommend using the GULFF UV flashlight.
After curing, allow the surface of the resin to cool for about 5 seconds, without touching it.
If the resin surface has been cured properly, it will be either shiny or matte, depending on the choice of resin, but it will always be free of stickiness.
However, if the surface of the resin remains sticky for a long period of time after being exposed to the light, ensure that the flashlight’s batteries are at full power, that the flashlight was at a distance of about 1 cm from the resin, and that the fly does not contain any oily materials.
Note that coloured resins take longer to cure than clear ones. Also, remember to change / charge your flashlight’s batteries appropriately often: even a small decrease in battery power will reduce the effectiveness of curing.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT TYPE OF UV FLASHLIGHT FOR GULFF UV RESINS:
Experts recommend always using a powerful UV flashlight (e.g. 365nm/3w).
Keep in mind that the inexpensive, general-purpose 395-405nm UV flashlights available on the market are not the best possible options for UV resins.
Inexpensive UV flashlights are often low-wattage and of variable quality.
The quality differences are due to the fact that no standard model of UV light source is used in them, the advertised wattages are maximum values, and the light-guidance mechanisms they have may not be suitable to the purpose.
Note that not all UV flashlights are appropriate for fly-tying.
UV flashlights that are specifically meant for fly tying have special light-guidance mechanisms, as they are designed to be brought close to the target object. By choosing the GULFF UV flashlight, you can be sure you are using a flashlight meant for fly tying.
Take note of safety related issues mentioned on the packaging.
GULFF UV Resin is very quick-drying resin, and can cause harm if used improperly.
There is a very high risk of harm if the resin gets onto the skin and UV light hits the surface of skin that has been smeared with the resin.
A burn may form on the skin, or the glue may become stuck to the skin.
When handling the resin and UV light, protect the eyes and avoid skin contact.
The chemicals should always be used in a well-ventilated space.
The resin must absolutely be kept out of the reach of children.
Note that the resin cures under sunlight as well.
UV resins heat up when exposed to light.
