Quick FAQs

Commercially available dyes and pigments can be found under thousands of different trade names. A dyes and pigments dictionary called the “Color Index” was created to reduce communication problems. The “Colour Index” lists dyes and pigments by colour and a number depending on their structure. The names of dyes and pigments are unique, e.g. “Colour Index Pigment Yellow 74” (CIP 74) or “PY.74”. In many cases, manufacturers publish their CI numbers so they can be cross referenced and compared.

The pigment selection process involves several key factors to ensure the best match for specific applications. Initially, the color shade and intensity desired are determined. Then, the pigment’s performance attributes, such as lightfastness, heat stability, and chemical resistance, are considered. Compatibility with the intended medium, whether it be inks, plastics, or coatings, is also crucial. Environmental impact and regulatory compliance are assessed to meet sustainability goals and safety standards. Finally, technical support and expertise  help optimize formulations and achieve the desired outcomes in the final product.

Several factors influence the final cost of a pigment. The complexity of the manufacturing process is a primary factor, as some pigments require more intricate synthesis or purification steps. The availability and source of raw materials also affect cost, with scarce or hard-to-process materials driving prices higher. Additionally, the pigment’s color strength and durability attributes, such as lightfastness and chemical resistance, can impact cost due to the need for higher quality and more expensive raw materials. Regulatory and environmental compliance can also contribute to costs, especially if special handling or processing is required to meet stringent standards. Finally, market demand and supply fluctuations can further influence the pricing of pigments.
