Kerr Satin cast 20 with pink tint


#1

Hi,

Does anyone use KERR SATIN CAST 20? I have for YEARS, and just
opened a new box, measured and mixed and notices a pink hue to this
new box. Anyone else notice this? I haven’t had time yet to ask my
supplier about this, but believe me, I’m NOT crazy! LOL Seemed to be
just fine, but the pink hue threw me back a bit.

Let me know, Thanks,

Hi Steve,

Did it turn bright pink, but only after you mixed it with water?
(it’s white when powder.)

If so, then you got a box of the special stuff they use for
stone-in-place casting. If it’s just generically pink, than your
guess is as good as mine.

HTH,
Brian

Hi, Brian

Yes it’s white in powder form but when I mixed it with water it
turned bright pink.

That was my suspicion but I thought I would ask.

After pouring the gold and tried to quench it, it was like concrete.
I think that was the give away!

Thanks for the info.!
Sincerely,

The pink color comes from the blending process at the facility. It is basically a ‘leftover’ from a previous production run of plasters, which are pink in color. This happens every once in a while, but it does not affect the performance of your investment powder. Hope this helps.
