Stunning colour tints for epoxy creations added to Entropy Resins range

by Jake Young 1 Aug 04:00 PDT

An exciting line of liquid colours has been released to add bold and beautiful tints to epoxy. The tints are part of the bio-based Entropy Resins® product range and can be added to epoxy creations (after the resin and hardener is mixed) to bring stunning deep colour, or to add softer translucent tones.

Specifically designed for epoxy river tables, jewellery and other crafts as well as sporting equipment like surf, skate and snowboards, the beautiful selection of colours come in two thematic packs, Soft and Vivid.

The Soft Tint Pack contains: Lavender Hills, Flamingo Pink, Caribbean Blue, Turquoise, Snowy Peaks and Fresh Apricot. The Vivid Tint Pack contains: Berry Red, Lemon Zest, Eclipse, Lily Pad Green, Snowy Peaks and Celestial Blue.

The tints are in liquid form and, in keeping with Entropy Resins ethos of being environmentally friendly, they are water based. Each tint comes in a 25g recycled plastic bottle with a droplet nozzle designed for precision control. Both packs contain six complementary tones, ready to inspire all creatives. They're available from all good retailers as well as entropyresins.com, RRP £19.99 (inc. VAT).

The tints are straightforward to use as a blanket colour, a translucent effect and/or to add highlight threads into designs. They are particularly effective when used with Entropy Resins products. That's because the bio-based epoxy has low viscosity for easy pouring, is brilliant at degassing and has a lengthy pot life to allow time for stunning creative work.

"The Entropy Resins tints were developed in response to customer needs," says Ian Oliver, managing director of Wessex Resins and Adhesives, the company which manufactures Entropy Resins under licence from Gougeon Brothers Inc. "There are people all over the world using Entropy Resins for the bio-based formula, being kinder to the environment. They're making stunning river tables, wonderful jewellery and a whole range of crafts - and they were clamouring for colour tints specifically designed to work within the crystal-clear finish of Entropy Resins Clear Casting epoxy - we are really excited to see what they produce with the tints."

Also in the Entropy Resins product line are recycled plastic graduated mixing pots (800ml) and wooden mixing sticks.

As well as crafts, Entropy Resins products are used in a variety of applications, from coating and laminating at room temperature, compression moulding, and casting and embedding to produce water clear, UV-stable finishes. Due to their sustainability credentials, Entropy Resins epoxies are used extensively by action sport goods manufacturers for the construction of items such as surf and snowboards.
