Manufactured according to the original formulas, the Artisti line includes authentic, hard to find colors like Prussian Blue and Bitumen. With the exception of the whites, which are ground in safflower oil, all Artisti Oils are prepared using top-quality, cold pressed linseed oil.
Perinone Orange is a strong, clean, reddish orange pigment classified as a vat pigment. It has an average drying time.
Perinone Orange has excellent lightfastness and weatherfastness.
Perinone Orange is not considered toxic.
Perinone orange is often used in plastics and vinyls, automotive finishes, and printing inks. Its high cost limits its application to products for which superior lightfastness and weather resistance is essential. In textiles, it is used in synthetic fabrics that must survive in harsh conditions, such as tents and awnings.
Benzidine Yellow GG
Pigment Yellow 17 is a somewhat greenish yellow that has very high tinting strength and good resistance to solvents.
Pigment Yellow 17 has good lightfastness if prepared using the proper procedures. Because procedures for preparing PY17 vary, artists may want to conduct their own lightfastness tests to verify that the manufacturer has selected quality pigment.
Benzidine dyes are not bioavailable. Although benzidine-based dyes can be reduced to their amine precursors in vivo, creating a compound that is carcinogenic, benzidine dyes are believed to be so insoluble in water that they are unlikely to be absorbed in a quantity sufficient to be carcinogenic.
This Benzidine Yellow dye was first reported by Esitelty in 1949. Initiailly, it was reported to be less lightfast than yellow monoazo pigments, which limited its usefulness. A method for making Pigment Yellow 17 more permanent was patented in 1972 (United States Patent 3785843), and the improved dye became known as Permanent Yellow. Permanent Yellow 17 is widely used in printing inks, textile dyes, paints, plastics, and coatings.
