West System Pigment, 4 ounce
Select Color

Adding WEST SYSTEM pigment to epoxy should, like everything in life, be done in moderation. Without exception, adding pigment to WEST SYSTEM Epoxy will weaken the cured physical properties to some small degree. Because of this, we suggest you use very small amounts of pigment, about 5% by weight. As a result, thin films of colored epoxy are somewhat transparent. It usually requires several coats to make the film opaque.
Pigments are available in three colors, white, black and gray. We suspend the pigments in an epoxy resin base which allows them to blend thoroughly into the epoxy to make very uniform colors. Because the pigment has an epoxy resin base, it is important not to add more than the recommended amount. Adding an excessive amount of pigment to the epoxy could alter the resin/hardener ratio, compromising cured epoxy performance.
WEST SYSTEM pigments are epoxy-based liquid colorants used to tint the epoxy mixture to provide an even color base for the final finish system. The colored surfaces also tend to highlight flaws and imperfections. Cured, pigmented epoxy surfaces are not a final finish surface, but require an additional paint or UV filter coating for ultraviolet protection. Add to the mixed resin/hardener at a rate of approximately one teaspoon of pigment to 8 fl oz of epoxy. More pigments will increase opaqueness and mixture viscosity. One 4 fl oz bottle will tint approximately 1.5 gal of epoxy.
