Epoxy Paste Pigments 0
Our Epoxy Paste Pigments are pure, dry, colored, pigments dispersed in in an epoxy resin blend. They are pourable, easily measured, and contain no solvents, and may be blended with one another to produce additional colors. Since they are dispersed in an epoxy resin blend, they react into the system and do not change its cured properties. The proper way to use these pigments is to add them to the resin (Part A) side and then add the hardener(Part B) at the correct ratio for the epoxy system being used.

Hot Tubbing with SilverTip Epoxy 0
This is the Super "R" hot tub from Maine Cedar Hot Tubs, Inc. The outer shell of these tubs is constructed from an oil finished Western Red Cedar and accented with brushed stainless steel bands to mirror the appearance of the traditional cedar or redwood tub. Maine Cedar Hot Tubs, Inc. use System Three Silvertip Epoxy to cold-mould and overlay the cap rail, base rail, and inner shell of the tub.
Samantha Malay Uses MirrorCoat for Metal Tiles 0
I like to make durable surfaces using resin and small pieces of salvaged metal. I learned about MirrorCoat™ from Darin Montgomery, furniture designer-builder and owner of Urbancase. Nick Gucker at System Three Resins was very helpful, by phone and email, when I had technical questions about its use.

Custom 10' Skiff 0
My latest project, a ten-foot, flat bottom skiff. Designed and built by yours truly. The boat was built with 1/4" meranti plywood from Edensaw Woods, and of course, System Three general purpose resin and T-88, (purchased from Revchem in Tacoma).
