Re: Epoxy: Tinting
In Response To: Re: Epoxy: Tinting ()

I've used graphite in epoxy on a few projects to "grease up" hulls and (supposedly) avoid big scratches and snags. I felt like I had to use quite a bit to get a truly opaque black, though- I'm guessing a pigment additive requires less "filler" and is stronger?
Regardless- I'm not so graceful getting in and out of a kayak as it is so I probably shouldn't add graphite to the mix! lol.
