SPECIFICATION/CHARACTERISTICS
PREPARATION OF COLOURLESS COLD ENAMEL
HASULITH® Cold Enamel (Resin C + Hardener V 20 L) is a 2-Component Epoxy- Mixing:
System to obtain an effect like glass-enamel e.g. on (fashion) – jewelry, badges,
pins or orders.
Resin C and Hardener V20L have to be mixed in a ratio of 10:4
(e.g. 10 g Resin C + 4 g Hardener V20 L) until the mixture is completely
The colourless Cold Enamel can be used e.g. for coating photos, printed labels or homogeneous.
as a decorative protection coating for e.g. badges or orders whose deepenings
have been painted with coloured lacquers before.
The mixing ratio must be observed as accurate as possible to obtain optimal
To obtain coloured Cold Enamel the colourless Cold Enamel can be mixed with results. The tolerance of the mixing ratio is in a range of 10 : 4 until 10 : 4.5 this

Hardener V 20 L.
Other characteristics of HASULITH® Cold Enamel are:
•
•
•
•
•
good scratch resistance
drying on ambient temperature (no oven necessary)
almost no colour of its own and
very minimal yellowing on exposure to light or on aging
resistant against many chemical influences
After the Cold Enamel is dry it can be drilled, filed or polished.
RECOMMENDED MATERIALS
Please notice: excess of hardener will not lead to shorter drying time or higher
hardness. If too much hardener was used, the Cold Enamel will get a dull and
greasy looking surface mixture will remain soft and sticky.
For measuring of the compounds we recommend to use scales with appropriate
precision. In electronic shops you can buy electronic pocket scales e.g. with a
precision of 0.1 g and a maximum load of about 200 g. This kind of scales are very
suitable especially for the preparation of small amounts of Cold Enamel mixtures.
As a makeshift or for first trials the measuring also can be done by using one-way
syringes (e.g. a 10 ml syringe for Resin C and a not completely filled 5 ml syringe
for Hardener V 20 L).
This method is not very precise and it has to be sure that the compounds do not
include air bubbles which can falsify the result.
In most cases Cold Enamel is applied on metals. Other suitable materials are: Suitable mixing receptacles can be clean plastic cups e.g. film cups or other small
containers made of non absorbent materials. Absorbent materials (like e.g. paper
glass, ceramics, china and some hard plastics like Plexi, PS, ABS.
or cardboard cups, wooden boards etc.) are not suitable.
Not appropriate for plastics like PVC, PET, PE, PP, rubber, Nylon and other elastic
or flexible materials. Also not recommended for the application on absorptive For mixing a metal spatula (e.g. our Art.No.8 DSP-ST spatula, stainless steel,
185x9 mm) or a glass rod proved to be very suitable. If always cleaned after

within 30 minutes.
As already mentioned, colourless Cold Enamel also can be used for coating photos
or printed labels. On „genuine“ photos no problems have been reported yet, but on
printed photos or labels discolour or bleeding effects can occur (although seldom).
Because of the big variety of materials used on this field (e.g. printing inks, toners,
paper qualities...) sufficient trials and tests have to be made, to make sure that no
undesired effects will occur on contact with the Cold Enamel. Sometimes this
effects can occur even after the Cold Enamel looks already dry – so it is
recommended to watch the result for some time.
application of the Cold Enamel mixture:
For coating areas of several square centimeters the Cold Enamel mixture can be
cast on the object or into the cavities and spread to the borders, edges or
corners using a spatula or a small wooden stick.
In case the Cold Enamel has to be applied to smaller or even very small areas of a
few square millimeters, usually the mixture is transferred to a syringe with a
needle and applied through that.
Accordingly tests are recommended as well, if coloured painted areas are Syringe and needle have to be cleaned with an appropriate thinner (e.g. our

Suggested formulations and other useful hints you will find in the appendix of this
product information.
b) Transparent coloured Cold Enamel
can be obtained by mixing Hasulith-Dyestuff-Concentrates into the colourless
Cold Enamel. In most cases an amount of 1-5 % of Dyestuff-Concentrate (parts by
weight calculated on colourless mixture) is enough to get a deep transparent
coloured shade. Please notice that -especially on the transparent colours- the
shade will depend (considerable) on the amount of Dyestuff-Concentrate and the
thickness of the transparent coloured Cold Enamel layer. To obtain reproducable
results it is recommended to write down the amount of Dyestuff-Concentrate
which was used resp. to prepare a stock of transparent coloured Resin C
analogous like described under a).
REMOVING OF COLD ENAMEL
Because of the very good resistance properties of HASULITH® Cold Enamel,
removing of the hardened Cold Enamel is almost impossible (especially if the
drying was finished by using higher temperatures or the Cold Enamel is dry
already for a longer time).
If the coated materials can stand for higher temperatures (e.g. metals, glass) the
coating can be removed mechanically after heating to temperatures of at least
150°C.
Long term soaking (at least one day) in our Solvent NMP (Art.-No. 5NMP) also
can help in some cases. The Cold Enamel will not be dissolved but will swell, so
there is some chance to peel it off cautiously e.g. using a knife or a spatula.
If a Dyestuff-Concentrate is added to a colourless Cold Enamel mixture the shade
can change a little bit until the Cold Enamel is completely dry. For this reason we Both methods are not appropriate if the coated objects also contain plastics parts

affected or removed.
Suggested formulations and other useful hints you will find in the appendix of this
product information.
c) Coloured Cold Enamel with Pearlescent-Effect
Combinations of pearlescent pigments with Dyestuff-Concentrates in Cold Enamel
will lead to interesting decorative effects. A typical mixture will consist of 5-10 % of
pearlescent pigment + 5 % of Dyestuff-Concentrate (parts by weight calculated on
colourless Resin C + Hardener V 20 L mixture). Because some pearlescent
pigment will settle down during the hardening process, it is recommended to stir
through (e.g. with a toothpick) the applied Cold Enamel coating after 1 h drying at
ambient temperature to obtain decorative streaks in the coating.
Pearlescent pigments are available in: silver, yellow, red, green, violet, blue and
copper-brown.
Example: To a mixture of 10 g Resin C + 4 g of Hardener V 20 L, 1 g of yellow
pearlescent pigment 0.7 g of Dyestuff-Concentrate No.16, red is added and
stirred in thoroughly. About one hour after application the Cold Enamel mixture will
become thicker and has to be stirred through with a toothpick to obtain the
decorative streaks.

Resin C and Hardener V20L: Keep out of reach of children. Do not eat, drink or
smoke when working with the material. Avoid contact with eyes or skin. After
contact with skin: rinse with plenty of soap water. After eye contact: rinse with
plenty of water and see an oculist immediately. If swallowed or in case of accident:
seek for medical advice immediately. Wear gloves and goggles. Do not release to
the environment.
STORAGE/HANDLING
Resin C:
Should be stored at ambient temperature in a well closed container in a dry and
dark place. Under this conditions it can be stored at least for one year.
Hardener V 20 L:
Should be stored in a well closed container in a cool, dry and dark place. Under
this conditions it can be stored at least for 6 month. If stored in a refrigerator
(away from foodstuffs or beverages !) it can be stored at least for one year. In this
case the hardener has to be put out of the refrigerator several hours before use
to get ambient temperature.
Long term exposure to light and frequent exposure to oxygen can cause some
yellowing. This will not affect the mechanical properties but will lead to a slightly
yellow Cold Enamel.
Hardener V 20 L will slowly absorb some carbon dioxide from the air by forming
insoluble salt crusts. For this reason the containers should be always closed after
use.
WASTE
Completely hardened mixtures can be wasted together with the household
rubbish. Residues of the single components or not completely emptied containers
have to be wasted as hazardous waste according to the local regulations.

As already mentioned, the addition of Colour Pastes or Dyestuff-Concentrates to
the colourless Cold Enamel will lead to some retardation of the drying time. The
retardation of the drying time will depend on the amount of Colour Paste resp.
Dyestuff-Concentrate so it is recommended to add only the necessary amount
and to avoid excesses of this components to keep the drying time as short as
possible.

By mixing 8 g Colour Paste blue (No.1032) with 2 g Colur Paste white (No.1004)
a dark blue shade („royal blue“) will be obtained. For lighter blue shades the
amount of white has to be increased e.g. 8 g of white + 2 g of blue will lead to a
