Powder pigments mixing instructions
- We recommend mixing the pigment powder into the hardener after it has been poured into your mixing container; this allows for the pigment to be mixed well without the risk of the epoxy setting up during the mixing process.
- You should start with small amounts of pigment. Mix it into the hardener, then add more according to your goals. You can always add more if it is not enough.
- Once the pigment is mixed into the hardener, you can add in your resin. Follow the mixing times of the epoxy instructions included in the box with your order.
- As soon as the resin has been adequately mixed into the colored hardener (make sure you follow the instructions from your order), it needs to be poured onto the surface immediately to prevent it from curing inside the mixing container.
- There's no standard calculation for mixing colors into epoxy. It is based on the user's visual preference. However, in our research we have found a common range of 1g of color pigment per 1oz to 8oz of epoxy. We recommend starting with 1g pigment per 8oz of epoxy. You can increase the amount of pigment from there until you get the color depth you're looking for.
When deciding how much pigment to use, consider the following factors:
- Pigment type
- The effect you're going for
- Desired appearance
- How opaque you want the epoxy to be
- The color and appearance of the substrate you'll be pouring the resin onto.
We strongly recommend you do a small test pour to see if your mix looks the way you want it to for your project.
Note: When using any type of red pigment, we suggest having a black surface underneath to get the true color. The lighter the surface underneath the red pigment, the lighter it will appear.
Liquid pigments mixing instructions:
- Please note that there is no exact ratio of liquid pigment to epoxy.
- General use: One bottle of liquid pigment per mixed gallon of epoxy will result in a solid color of your choice.
- For optimal results, start with only a small amount of pigment. Continue to add more until you have achieved your desired color.
- We recommend adding the liquid pigments to the epoxy hardener side before you mix it together with the resin component.
- For example, if you are pouring one gallon of epoxy total, you would measure out a half gallon of hardener in its own container, then slowly add and mix the liquid pigment into it completely before finally combining the hardener with the resin.
Purchasers should, through their own tests and evaluation, determine the suitability of such products for their specific use.
