The pigment is mixed into the gel coat before the catalyst is added, so can be compared against the hull nearest the damage. For the very best results, use a polishing compound on the damaged area of the hull first, to remove oxidation and get to the true underlying color.
Stir or shake color pigment well before using. Use small amounts of colorant to tint base. Mix thoroughly after each addition. Add or mix colorant to one-quart resin/gelcoat. Test on a piece of scrap material before continuing the project.
GELCOAT WITH WAX
No additional patch aid additives are required. Cures correctly with no PVA, wax paper, or special equipment. The non-sagging formula fills out shallow scratches. Deeper scratches involve a filler TRUE COMPOSITES color pigment applied to the gel coat. Can be combined with TRUE COMPOSITES coloring pigments.
GELCOAT WITHOUT WAX
Ideal as the first layer when building a boat hull or composite part on a prepared mold. The non-sagging formula fills out shallow scratches. Deeper scratches involve a filler TRUE COMPOSITES One Poly Filler applied to the gel coat. Can be combined with TRUE COMPOSITES coloring pigments.
We suspend the pigments in an epoxy resin base which allows them to blend thoroughly into the epoxy to make very uniform colors. Because the pigment has an epoxy resin base, it is important not to add more than the recommended amount. Adding an excessive amount of pigment to the epoxy could alter the resin/hardener ratio, compromising cured epoxy performance.
ALWAYS MIX COLOUR PIGMENT WITH RESIN/GELCOAT BEFORE ADDING HARDENER OR CURING AGENT.
