UVO Concentrated Pigment for Plastics Foams & Epoxy
By adding a small amount of UVO® to epoxy, urethane rubber, plastic or foam product, these pigment dispersions will yield opaque castings (vs. SO-Strong color tints that can yield translucent urethane castings).
UVO® Colorants are highly concentrated, phthalate-free polyurethane color pigments that resist ultra-violet light.
UVO® colorants are highly concentrated, offer excellent dispersion and consistent color. A very small amount will color a proportionally large amount of liquid epoxy or polyurethane. One drop will color 1 pint (454 grams) of mixed material. The more you add in proportion to the volume of liquid material, the more dramatic the color effect. Recommended loading range is .01% to 3% of total system weight. Do not overload the liquid system or cure inhibition / oozing may occur.
User determines amount to add: If this is your first time adding color to an epoxy or polyurethane system, you may want to test the color effect by adding a few drops to a small amount of material and observe the outcome. It may take a few test castings to attain the desired color outcome. Important: Results may vary depending on UV resistance of epoxy or polyurethane product.This pigment has also proven to be popular with surfboard manufacturing for it's consistent results and UV resistance.
I have been using these to tint the resin for my surfboards and really pleased with this product. Super vibrant colours, very strong and no filtering required. I'm using around 1.5-2% and getting good results. The standard colours are also really great so little or no mixing needed to get some nice colours.
Not much to say really, it tints as it should.
Good to hear, thanks Hayden :)
