How to Add ShimiColors to your Acrylic, Urethane or Epoxy Resin
Adding a touch of colour is a simple way to get the most out of the epoxy resin you're using. Adding colours lends depth and complexity to surface coats, and you can add coloured resin between coats to mark a clear boundary, which comes in handy later if you have to sand off the topcoat. By adding just a little dye to a clear or white epoxy resin, you can achieve almost any effect you're going for.
ShimiColour addition rate is as low as 100mL to 1000mL per 20L of formulated epoxy, or acrylic resin products. Lesser quantities are normally required for Acrylic systems. The concentrations of ShimiColours in your resin may dictate the opacity and coverage level of your finished products and your desired result.
Most epoxy resins can accept colorant at a saturation between 5 and 20 percent. ShimiColours are SO STRONG that you never need any concentration over and above 5% (1.0L per 20L Resin). Even the high addition of 5% is rarely desirable.
Choose from many colors or mix them to create custom colors in order to produce the desired effect for your surface.
