Schmincke manufactures this non-polluting alternative to the original toxic chromium yellow using two modern organic pigments.
Pigment Yellow PY155 is a greenish yellow with high tinting strength and good solvent resistance. It is often used as a replacement for chromium yellow.
Pigment Yellow PY155 has very good lightfastness, but some monoazo yellows have better weatherfastness. It may not be suitable for exterior applications. Grades with coarser particles have been reported to have much better weatherfastness.
Bisacetoacetarylide pigments are a subgroup of the disazo pigments. Although many have been described and patented, only a few are commercially available. Pigment Yellow PY155 is used in paints, plastics, printing inks, and industrial coatings.
Novoperm Yellow 4G
Nickel dioxine yellow is a semi-transparent, lightly staining yellow pigment with high tinting strength, although less than that of the diarylides. It is considered a good color match for Indian Yellow, a historic pigment that is no longer available. Drying time is average.
Nickel Dioxine Yellow has excellent lightfastness.
Nickel metal is toxic and may irritate skin.
