Liquid Lens Brings New 20th Anniversary Edition Desktop Doming System to Trophex Live 2018 at the Birmingham NEC from January 14th-15th
(and keeps trophy-makers legally compliant in the process)

2018 marks the 20th Anniversary of Liquid Lens, the UK resin labelling company that has become the world leader in desktop doming systems for the trophy and merchandise industry.

To kick off annual celebrations, Liquid Lens has developed a new resin doming system that enables smaller producers of labels, signs and badges to make crystal clear 3D gel labels for trophies, medals, plaques and awards more quickly and easily than ever before – but that’s not the only benefit.

Mercury-Free Badges for Trophies

As the leading supplier of DIY desktop doming machines, worldwide, Liquid Lens has been supporting the UK trophy industry since 1998 and continues to be one of the only companies to offer high-grade resins that are free from mercury.

“This move by the EU to ban mercury catalysts is a positive one that improves the safety and environmental impact of resin, which is something we’ve supported since we started. We’d like to let all customers of our resins know that we have only ever sold mercury-free resins. They have been and will continue to be compliant, and won’t need to make any changes,” commented Steve Hastie, MD at Liquid Lens.

Crystal Clear and Beautifully Smooth

“A few people were historically misinformed that the mercury-free resins weren’t as durable or quick to dry, but that’s just a myth. In actual fact, mercury-free resins do air dry and can also be accelerated in the oven. The mercury-free resins also have a superior, non-tacky finish that is smooth to the touch, exceptionally durable and beautifully clear, which is why they’ve remained so popular for badges and name plates on trophies and awards.”

Liquid Lens will be demonstrating just how easy it is to create your own domed resin badges for trophies with the new desktop equipment at Trophex Live 2018 Stand A12 throughout the show, where visitors will also be in with the chance to win a starter kit in their Trophex competition.
