Transparent coloured epoxy resin

Transparent tinted glass effect colours
Transparent colours are frequently created by casting epoxy resin to make colours similar to water, gold or browns. This process produces a depth effect, a peculiarity of coloured epoxy resins.
The creativity and the combination that is created with materials such as wood, for example, give rise to games of unique transparencies and colours, where material and air bind together, generating a tactile and striking visual impact. For business and professional use
The final result has made it possible to produce specific pigments suitable for the Low, Medium and High thickness casting resins.

The pigments we use are different from other pigments because they react with the hardener and therefore do not lead to structural changes or other defects that can be found when using inks with wood primers.
The amount of colour in the resin is adjustable and is related to the intensity and depth of the colour you want to achieve. In general, the greater the thickness of the casting, the smaller amount of pigments will be needed. For 2 to 3 cm thickness, we recommend using about 2% of pigment. You can change this amount based on your testing.

The pigments developed by Cromas are vivid colours that allow you to create unique colour shades:
  • 91008 SOLAR YELLOW – Ideal for making gold effects on metallic substrates
  • 91013 SCARLET RED – Extremely vivid and transparent
  • 91019 AQUAMARINE – Ideal for water effect
  • 91020 SMOKY QUARTZ – Black pigment ideal for burnishing and smokey effect
  • 023 AMBER BROWN – Warm brown colour
  • These pigments can be used alone or mixed together to obtain new colours, such as green and purple, which are easily achieved.
    These coloured resins can also be used to make multicoloured castings where you can see the unmixed colours in layers.

    The importance of pre-production testing
    The use of coloured pigments with epoxy resins are easy for professionals and crafts people, but we recommend that you always carry out application tests.

    We suggest that you refer to the instruction manual of the resins you intend to use in your application. Our advice is based on our extensive research and testing. However there are many factors in this process, so it is always advisable to test each product before moving on to the production stage.
