Nope, original Araldite (sets in about an hour and cures fully in 8-24
hours, faster at higher temperatures) and Araldite Rapid (sets in 5-10
minutes, and cures in about an hour) are both clear-to-amber epoxy resins.
 Both are mixed 50:50; both come as light amber resin and transparent
bluish hardener. The company does make other products, including Aerolite,
and some other epoxies, perhaps what you've seen is one of those.
