How much So-Strong pigment can I add to my urethane material?
Posted on 7/24/2014
SO-StrongTM liquid urethane colorants can be added to any Smooth-On liquid urethane rubber, urethane plastic for urethane foam (do not use with Smooth-On silicones). They can be used to create a variety of color effects
for a wide range of material applications. For glowing fluorescent color effects, use Ignite colorants.
SO-StrongTM colorants are highly concentrated, offer excellent dispersion and consistent color. A very small amount will color a proportionally large amount of liquid urethane material. The more you add in proportion to the volume of liquid urethane, the more dramatic the color effect. Recommended loading range is .01% to 3% of total system weight. Do not overload the liquid urethane system or cure inhibition / oozing may occur.
If this is your fi rst time adding color to a urethane system, it is recommended that you test the color effect by adding a few drops to a small amount of material and observe the outcome. Color Tints: Black, Brown, Yellow, Purple, Green, Orange, Red and Blue.
Color Pigments: White and Fleshtone
