Update - March 2013: Formula, Trademarks and Patents

 

We're one step closer!!!  Good news from our chemist: our new ArtResin formula will be exportable internationally!

There are 3 main properties I have been pushing for, which is why development is taking so long:

  1. no VOCs (exportable and safe!)
  2. serious protection against yellowing (not 100% possible, but we can make something far superior to existing products... apparently we've achieved it!)
  3. 1:1 mixing ratio (this one has been the hardest to get, because naturally resin wants to be a 2:1 mixing ratio.... and the additives to bring it to 1:1 often yellow...

Please drop me a line via artresin.com to chat!

Lastly, our Canadian and USA trademarks are coming along! What a process. Apparently you do not patent chemicals because the patent gives away the ingredients and you can easily switch up some things to get around them.. so you call it a 'secret recipe' or 'proprietary formula'. Thanks for following along and all the interesting emails and phone calls I've been getting.
