Coloring 5200

Anyone know what color base would work ok in coloring 5200? They have tan so there must be some tint that will work in the product?

3M “5200" polyurethane adhesive/sealant is available in White, Black, Mahogany, & Tan, completely cures in 5-7 days with no shrinkage; after which it is paintable. In fact 5200 will even cure under paint (& water), so might be overpainted after a 48 hour set.

I wouldn’t play with the chemistry, trying to colour it.

I know it's not the same, but I've heard of people who have taken silcone sealant and poured coloring into it, most memorably, lime jello. They were trying to make a new fishing lure by coloring it and squirting it into a mould made from a bar of soap.
