Brass, copper, aluminium, iron and bronze are commonly available but nickel can also be found. When added to polyester, vinyl ester or epoxy resins these materials can minimize resin drainage from vertical surfaces, increase bonding properties, reduce the cost of the resin mix, improve abrasion resistance or improve sanding properties, reduce or increase the mixed weight and lower shrinkage rates. Amongst a wide range commonly used are Fillite (an alumino-silicate ash) and other ‘glass microspheres’; chalk, talc, marble dust or limestone sand (i.e. Obviously kits consist of individual parts. Weight isn’t really a factor as the terrain pieces aren’t huge themselves. also calcium carbonate but finer than the above. Neither copper nor brass powder will affect standard working time too much.
