SnowWhite is the epoxy we would recommend if you are looking for a white finish. SnowWhite is a pre-blended, stand-alone epoxy that does not get mixed with FlowCast or UVPoxy, but is an independent blend.
Compared to adding pigments to a clear epoxy, using SnowWhite produces a much better vibrancy that is more evenly blended and more cost-effective than buying a clear epoxy and white pigments. By using pigments, you end up needing a lot to get close to the same rich effect of SnowWhite.
SnowWhite consists of fillers and extra white pigments suspended in epoxy resin which are blended thoroughly, allowing for a uniform and incredibly brilliant white finish. SnowWhite mixes easily and is non-toxic with low order, making it a perfect solution if you are looking for a bright white color for your next project.
SnowWhite can be easily worked using the same tools you would use when woodworking. It can be sanded, shaped, drilled, tapped, machined, and routered and will remain tough and durable for life. It will adhere and create a very strong bond with the surface it’s applied to.
3:7:1 by weight - 2:5:1 by volume
2 hours depending on ambient temperature
24 hours depending on ambient temperature, humidity and thickness
1/2" - 1.5" per Layer. Maximum recommended pour depth of 1.5”. Not recommended for pours less than ½” depth
10-14 hours at 1-1 ½”
SnowWhite will cure more rapidly if left in pail. Have your mold ready, and pour epoxy immediately after mixing. Mold must be sealed thoroughly to avoid blowouts. Epoxy will flow like water, and can escape through even the smallest cracks.
Mix resin and hardener separately for 30 seconds. In a clean, dry container; combine (by weight) 3.7 parts resin with 1 part hardener, and mix thoroughly for 2 minutes.
Although pigments can be added, the effects will be very limited. For instance, if you were to add black to this rich white the best you’ll get is grey. Additionally, if you were to add in metallics, they will all turn white as the formulation of SnowWhite would overpower the metallics' effects.
Between 14 - 24 hours providing the previous layer is firm but still tacky. Once tack-free it is necessary to sand between layers to ensure proper adhesion.
50 degrees F. through 77 degrees F. with tightly sealed lids.
Epoxy has a shelf life of about 2 years providing it is properly stored in sealed containers.
