Step 4. Now your ready for the lamination phase. Depending on the size of the part your making the peroxide/catalyst becomes important. For small parts to achieve their best appearance you’ll want to reduce heat in thicker laminates. For a thick laminate we’d recommend United Initiators MCP-75 or for thinner laminates or faster cycles use their 750E.

Step 5. Now your ready to pigment your clear gelcoat or resin to the color of your choice. It’s recommended to do some test plaques before going directly into production. *Video below show this step for step.
Step 6. Now you can proceed with your CSM/Chop Strand Mat layers as usual. *NOTE Pigmenting the resin white with TIO2 will ensure your veil stays the same color as when you started, a light beige will do the same. Once the pigment color has been decided on, begin adding recommended laminate thickness.
