How to order?

Our Tru Metal Pigments are designed to be typically added to gallons of 100% solids epoxy coating at a standard rate of one unit or 2 ounces per gallon. In the case of TI Epoxy HP, a typical kit is a 3 gallon kit, so 1 units or 6 ounces will be appropriate. The standard application rate of epoxy is 75 -100 square feet per gallon. This thickness will ensure the Tru Metal Pigments can work their magic. Once the epoxy is applied, the pigments start to move and create their patina in a matter of minutes.

Though epoxy is the most typical coating, the Tru Metal pigments can be used with great results with many other coatings. These include polyaspartics (PolyKoat), polyureas, polyurethanes, MMA sealers, solvent AND water-based acrylics, water-based acrylics, and water-based epoxies. Bear in mind that the thickness of the coating greatly determines the density and 3-D affects of the coating. What that means is that a typical acrylic sealer is applied at approximately 225-250 sq ft per gallon. To get the same density and a typical metallic epoxy application at say 75 sq ft per gallon, you will three times as much Tru Metal pigment (6 ounces per gallon) for a similar affect. If the sealer you chose gets a coverage rate of 150 sq ft per gallon, then you will need twice, or 4 ounces of pigment per gallon.
