Colorants & Fillers
Different types of colorants made especially for urethanes, epoxies and silicones let the user color any creation. Fillers are often added to casting resins to change the properties of the plastic, lower the weight or achieve a variety of finishes including metal, stone, porcelain, marble, wood, etc.
Silc Pig™ Electric Fluorescent Silicone Pigments are used for coloring tin-cure silicone rubber compounds such as Mold Max™ translucent ‘T’ Series products and platinum-cure silicones such as Dragon Skin™ and Ecoflex™ rubbers. Castings appear brighter in ambient light and appear to glow under UV light (black light).
