Definition of Liquid-To-Powder Ratio

  1. The liquid to powder ratio is the balance of liquid monomer to acrylic powder (polymer); it is important that the manufacturer’s recommended ratio be achieved in order for the hardening process to take place; incorrect or out-of-balance liquid-to-powder ratios can cause a variety of problems with acrylic, including yellowing, bubbling, or crystallization. A good liquid to powder ratio will result in a ball that is neither too wet nor too dry.
