Product Description

Set of 6 stunning neon pigment colours (fluorescent / day-glow) translucent tinting pigment intended to add a vivid bright neon colour to clear casting resins like GlassCast, ArtResin and most other polyester, polyurethane and epoxy casting resins. The neon tints also glow under UV light to produce dramatic effects.

Only a few drops of these special day-glow tints are needed to add translucent colour effects to resin castings and so each 25ml bottle is sufficient to tint large quantities of resin.

These translucent pigments are compatible with:

  • All GlassCast clear epoxy resin systems
  • ArtResin safe, clear art coating epoxy
  • Polyurethane casting resins (such as our Waterclear Polyurethane Casting Resin)
  • Waterclear polyester casting resins
  • Epoxy resins

They have been tested with products from our own range but should also work well with resins from other manufacturers however you should always conduct your own tests as to their compatibility with other resin systems.

As stated above, when 'tinting' clear resins the key is to use only a tiny amount of these translucent pigments. 1 droplet is enough to pigment around 20-40g of resin, depending on how strong you want the colour tint to be.

Remember that thicker castings will require a lower percentage of pigment because the tint will appear stronger the thicker the section is. Conversely, thinner castings will require a higher percentage of pigment in order to appear to be the same colour as thicker castings.

Since most electronic scales are incapable of the accuracy required to measure pigment ratios of around 0.005% we would suggest using the table on the specification tab as a guide, but in all cases experimenting yourself adding a tiny amount of pigment at a time until you achieve the desired level of tint.

The pigments disperse very quickly into epoxy resin and polyurethane resin. When using the pigments to tint larger quantities of polyester resin it is recommended to make a resin 'dispersion' by mixing the pigment into a small amount of the resin first and then mixing the small pigmented batch of resin into the larger batch to aid distribution of the pigment throughout the resin.

When pigmenting more reactive materials such as fast curing polyurethanes you will find it helpful to mix the pigment into one side of the resin (either part A or part B) thoroughly before mixing the two parts together and starting the reaction. This allows as much time as is needed to thoroughly disperse the pigment before starting the reaction. If you do choose to pigment just one side of the resin first it's helpful to remember that the addition of the second half of the resin will 'dilute' the tint when you add it.
