Silc Pig® silicone color pigments are used for coloring Smooth-On’s silicone rubber compounds including Mold Max® translucent ‘T’ Series, Dragon Skin® and Ecoflex® rubbers. Silc Pig® pigments also are also used to create mind blowing skin effects with systems such as Psycho Paint® and Skin Tite®. Silc Pig® pigments are concentrated, offer excellent dispersion and consistent color. Silc Pig® pigments are very concentrated and a very small amount of pigment will color a proportionally large amount of silicone. The more you add in proportion to the volume of liquid rubber, the more dramatic the color effect.
Silc Pig® pigments are concentrated, so a little goes a long way when coloring Smooth-On silicone products. Recommended loading range is .001% to 3% of total silicone system weight.
Do not overload silicone rubber with Silc Pig® or cure inhibition may occur.
Attaining just the right color for your application may require trial and error testing. Small scale testing is recommended before using substantial amounts of material for any project.
Pre-mix Silc Pig® pigment in container thoroughly before dispensing as settling may have occurred. Add Silc Pig® colorant to the Part A side of the silicone rubber system and mix well before adding Part B.
The Pantone Color Matching System is most commonly used in the printing industry to communicate color. As it relates to Smooth-On color tints and pigments, the represented color is an approximation and people’s interpretation of these colors may vary. The user will determine suitability of a color or combination of colors for the rubber, resin, foam or other product used specifically for their application. Due to the variability in products that are being colored, application, color concentration and other factors, Smooth-On makes no warranty with regards to the color.
