|Pigments Create Smoot, Colored Finishes|
West System® Brand 501 White Pigment and 503 Gray Pigment are epoxy-based liquid colorants used to tint an epoxy mixture, providing an even color base for the final finish system. However, cured, pigmented surfaces will require an additional paint or UV filter coating for ultraviolet protection.
Pigment is added to the mixed resin/hardener at a rate of approximately one teaspoon per 8 fluid ounces of epoxy. More pigment will increase opaqueness and mixture viscosity. One 4 fluid-ounce bottle of this pigment will tint about 1.5 gallons of epoxy.
For additional colors, powdered pigments such as tempera paint, colored tile grout, aniline dyes or universal tinting pigment can be added to the epoxy mixture. West System 423 Graphite Powder will color the epoxy black or impart darker shades to colors.
The 501 White Pigment retails for $15.40 and the 503 Gray Pigment is $15.60.
