Tinting epoxy?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Took a chunk out of my topsheet skiing (and tumbling in) some cake batter yesterday..

 

I'm going to seal up the exposed area with some epoxy I previously bought from Alpinord's shop. What would you guys use, that is locally available, to tint the clear epoxy white to match the topsheet?

Are you talking about mixing a tint into the epoxy, or overlaying something onto of the epoxy to make it match the top sheet?

i've had success tinting epoxy with sun valley tools tint.  Repaired some yellow Fischers that came out great.  Here's the link http://www.svst.com/Categories3.aspx?Category=2843b19d-3fe0-42af-b4cc-05c6d8b6475d

I was thinking of just coloring the clear epoxy white. I had not thought of overlaying something on the epoxy, since I don't have the piece of top sheet that chipped away.

This pretty much is what I was looking for, but it doesn't seem to be easy to obtain..  

 

Any ideas on how to get ahold of SVST products without being a dealer? They don't seem to allow regular orders.

Look on line for a Marine Gelcoat/Epoxy repair kit. They usually come with a set of tintsor in white I repaired the topskin with one of these on a pair of Brown Metallic Atomic R11 Beta-puls. It came it really good.

 

Here is an example
