Default Epoxy for Outdoors

I have a customer that wants me to engrave some corian 3x6 with
their logo that will be epoxy filled ( orange & black ) and installed in concrete work they do. I'm concerned about the epoxy fading and the
durability of the corian.

Coastal Enterprise, the manufacturer of Precision Board, makes a "doming" epoxy that will work. PB Resin. I use it regularly on signs. Like any epoxy, it wil "yellow" but you'll not notice it on any colour other than white.

Default PB Resin

The lettering on this is domed with PB resin. It still looks awesome after 2 years of facing south.
I almost always gild over domed epoxy, which is no testament to its longevity. This is one of the few I've done with no leaf covering the epoxy.
You tint it with solvent base paint, or perhaps powdered pigment. Universal tints don't work so well.... at least not the PPG/Porter ones I have.
