I've worked with a few kinds of resin before in anime propmaking (mainly fibreglass), and I know that given the wrong resin and wrong surface, major disintegration can occur. Perler advocates that its beads are made from LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LDPE), but I'm not sure how polyethylene reacts to certain resins (polyepoxides or otherwise). I think that fiberglass resin will be ok with the beads, but I'm not sure yet. If there are any among you with a better grasp of chemistry than I, hopefully we can shed some light on this. I've heard many times that these creations can be very fragile, and especially for selling purposes, you don't want these things breaking on you.
