Doming: what is it?


DROPEX is a Manual Doming System that is used by applying a two-component resin on a label, decal or any other non-porous surface.
After curing it becomes 3D, transparent, giving at the same time mechanical and chemical resistance properties.

Typical Doming label’s structure is shown on a picture:
1. Polyurethane lense (1,5 - 2,5 mm)
2. Basement (self-adhesive vynil or PET film) with or without printed image
3. Adhesive (water-based for indoor applications and solvent based for outdoor)
4. Liner (siliconized paper or PET film)

Starter Kit


We reccomend to use STARTER KIT for beginners to test the system
with minimum investment.
MD-22-KIT Manual Doming Starter KIT includes:
MD-50 Dispensing Gun - 1 pc
MD-22 Resin Cartridge (A+B), 50 ml - 1 pc.
MD-10 Mixing Tube - 1 pc.

Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What is the shelf life of the Dropex resin?

Answer: Dropex resins and hardeners have high level of UV stability; the shelf life of unopened raisin is guaranteed for 12 months from the date of manufacture.


Q: What's recommended room temperature for application?

Answer: Best working environment conditions are: Temperature: +20-25°C; Humidity: not more than 50% (less humidity is better for resin).


Q: What type of materials can I use as the base for doming?

Answer: Dropex resins can be applied on many different non-porous materials such as: Ink-Jet Media with coating for water-based or eco-solvent based inks, Vinyl or Polyester Films, Plastics (PVC, PMMA, PP, PET etc.), Metals (Aluminium, Brass etc.), Magnets, Stones (Marble, Granite etc.).


Q: What type of printing can be used with doming?

Answer: Normally all kinds of printing types can be used with Dropex Manual Doming (Ink-Jet (Water based inks, Eco-solvent and Solvent ink), Thermal Resin, Color Laser traditional print processes such as silk screen etc.) It is necessary to wait up to 24 hours to remove all solvent from the surface before doming.


Q: What shapes and sizes can be used for doming?

Answer: In general there are no limitations with regards to shape (circles, ovals, squares and rectangles with rounded corners are ideal) or size. We do not recommend the use of shapes with sharp corners, simply because it is time consuming to apply resins on such shapes. It is important to apply the correct amount of resin on decal. When the correct amount is used, it can be easily applied in one shot. Then it will flow and stop at the edges.


Q: How do I calculate the correct amount of required materials?

Answer: Resin capacity depends of doming thickness. Normally it is between 1,5mm (for small labels – up to 30mm in diameter) to 2,5mm (for big labels). Calculation of Resin Consumption (ml) is very easy: AREA (cm2.) multiplied by HEIGHT (cm) + wastage.

e.g. Square 25mm = 1ml:
Area = 2,5x2,5 cm = 6,25 cm2
Consumption = 6,25 x 0,15 = 0,94 ml
e.g. Circle 25mm = 0,8ml:
Area = 3,14 x1,25 cm = 4,9 cm2;
Consumption = 4,9 x 0,15 = 0,74 ml
e.g. Rectangle 25x50mm = 2 - 3,5ml:
Area = 2,5x5,0 cm = 12,5 cm2;
Consumption:
(Thickness 1,5 mm) = 12,5 x 0,15 = 1,88 ml
(Thickness 2,5 mm) = 12,5 x 0,25 = 3,13 ml
Q: How high can the dome be?

Answer: Doming height depends on shape, size and tension of the base material. Normally it varies from 1,5 to 2,5mm.


Q: Does care need to be taken to avoid contact to skin?

Answer: Resin is NON-HAZARDOUS, nonetheless, skin contact must be avoided. We recommend to use single-time used gloves for protection. In case of skin contact, wash affected areas thoroughly with soap and plenty of water. For more information please read MSDS (MD-22 Part A / MD-22 Part B).
