Trans Tint Dye
I purchased this product in the hopes that it could be added to epoxy resin and hardener mixtures to darken the resin without affecting the ability of the catalytic reaction. I've tested a small batch on some scrap wood and it seems to work well in terms of uniformly darkening the mixture and did not interfere with the curing of the epoxy. My only negative comment is that the small bottle requires opening the tip in order to gain access to the produce. I cut the tip of my bottle too much and now it is difficult to control the drop rate. In light of that, I would recommend using a small nail, heated with a torch, to carefully introduce a hole in the bottle tip rather than to attempt clipping off a bit of the plastic.
