Default liquid weight versus cured weight

I was wondering about this, does epoxy or poly resin "loose" weight as it cures? Would 1 oz of liquid resin/hardener still weigh 1 oz when set or does some of the weight ?evaporate? during the process? And if so, is it a significant amount (10 to 20%) or just an insignificant amount?

There wont be a weight difference, unless you add to the mix. IE - Micro Balloons, Alcohol
