Item details

Cactus Juice Stabilizing Dye
Cactus Juice Stabilizing Dyes are the perfect addition to any stabilizing operation and will add a vibrant pop of color to any piece of wood you want to stabilize. These dyes are completely liquid and will not settle or separate over time and this will achieve the super vibrant colors that Alumilite dyes can't achieve.

Cactus Juice Stabilizing Resin can be dyed with these vibrant colors whenever you want to add some to the material you are stabilizing.

The best success will be obtained with either Cactus Juice Stabilizing Dyes or Alumilite Dyes. They are both very concentrated and produce nice, vivid colors that mix and work well with Cactus Juice. Some powdered dyes can work as well but typically have a hard time dissolving thoroughly, leaving a residue in the bottom of the mixing container and on the blanks, sometimes preventing proper uptake of the resin. Cactus Juice Stabilizing Dyes and Alumilite dyes will not affect the cure of the Juice since they are specifically made for use in plastic resins. Be sure to use more dye than you think you need!

There is no formula available to give consistent results from wood to wood. This is due to the way different species and even different pieces of wood within the same log take the dyed Cactus Juice. It is all a matter of trial and error! Stabilizing itself is a science while dying and stabilizing is an art!

MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
I recommend starting out with a ratio of 1oz per gallon of Cactus Juice. Add the dye to the Cactus Juice in a jug and shake vigorously. Then run a sample batch with the wood you plan to do to completion. After cured, cut in half lengthwise to see what the color inside looks like. If it is too dark, add clear Cactus Juice to your mix. If it is not dark enough, add more dye. Just keep in mind that it takes a LOT more dye than you think to get good color in most woods.

Hardwoods will require more dye than soft punky woods. Wood color will also have an effect on the final product.

Suggested Starting Mix Ratio: 1oz per Gallon
Maximum Loading Ratio, Do Not Exceed: 4oz per Gallon



WARNING TO CUSTOMER: CACTUS JUICE STABILIZING DYE IS ONLY FOR USE WITH CACTUS JUICE STABILIZING RESIN! (It will NOT work with other casting resins such as Alumilite, Polyester, and Epoxy)
