Today, the Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolor range benefits from continued advancements in pigment technology and production methods, building on the company's already high standards to produce even brighter, more transparent, and more stable colors.
Color Swatches created using heavy application/diluted application and were applied on cold press watercolor paper (150 lb) material.
Benzimidazolone Orange is a staining, yellowish orange pigment that can become dull in tints. It has an average drying time, and it loses some of its intensity as it dries. The yellowish orange varieties are more transparent.
Benzimidazolone Orange has excellent lightfastness and outstanding heat and solvent stability for a monoazo pigment.
Benzimidazolone Orange is not considered toxic.
The benzimidazolone group of pigments was developed and patented in 1960 by Hoechst A.G., a German chemical manufacturer that was a forerunner of the pharmaceutical company Aventis. Use of benzimidazolone pigments in the auto industry, especially Benzimidazolone Orange, became common in the 1980s because they were common replacements for lead chromate pigments, which were phased out during this period.
