Pigments & Dyes

Try our pigments and dyes to tint polyester, vinyl ester, epoxy resins and polyurethane foam.
When it comes to increasing the bond strength between two materials, TAP Plastics is the ultimate source for supplies. With over 60 years of experience in plastic fabrication and distribution, we understand just how vital it is to have the tools you need to complete any project with confidence. One of the most versatile products we supply is epoxy plastic filler. When added to polyester or epoxy resins, these fillers can dramatically change the properties of the final product and make resins thixotropic without increasing viscosity. Whether you use Cab-O-Sil to thicken, Microspheres to reduce weight, Talc to cut down on costs, or glass fibers for reinforcement, we have you covered. We also offer a vast collection of plastic dye colors that can be customized to suit a specific application.

TAP Cab-O-Sil is a synthetic, hydrophilic amorphous silica that can be applied as a thickening and thixotropic agent in unsaturated polyesters, coatings, printing inks, adhesives, cosmetics, and other products. Cab-O-Sil controls sag and allows work on overhead surfaces. We offer several sizes to choose from, so you can stock up or save on just enough for your particular set of needs. TAP milled glass fibers are designed to increase mechanical, impact, tensile, flexural, and compressive strength. This efficient resin filler also increases dimensional stability. Microspheres are hollow “glass” spheres that can be used as an epoxy plastic filler that adds air particles to solid materials and improves the sanding characteristics of resin. Looking for a solution that increases the structural strength of resin? Look no further than chopped fiberglass.

While you are stocking up on resin filler, remember to check out our collection of resin dye. Our own premium pigments can be used for coloring fiberglass-reinforced plastics, polyester, or epoxy. Are you performing repair work? Blend any colors to create any hue on a color wheel. TAP super pigments are concentrated and pourable, making them a smart solution for casting rubber parts, models, and more. We offer a wide variety of epoxy dye colors to choose from, so you can find the best solution for your DIY project.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by calling 888-827-7330 or emailing info@tapplastics.com to learn more.
