Pigment Information

This color contains the following pigments:

PR170-Naphthol Red

PY74-Hansa Yellow

PO16-Dianisidine Orange


Pigment Name

PR170-Naphthol Red

Pigment Type

organic, naphthol AS

Chemical Formula

C26H22N4O4

Properties

Pigment PR170 is a bright deep red with bluish undertones. It has an average drying time. It has two crystaline forms that differ significantly in opacity. The more transparent form (F5RK) tends to be more bluish and is less lightfast.

Permanence

The lightfastness and weatherfastness of Pigment PR170 varies, depending on the application and the crystaline form. The opaque form (F3RK) has very good lightfastness, and is more weather resistant. The transparent form (F5RK) has lightfastness that is considered acceptable in pure applications, but it fades more in tints. Neither form is considered suitable for exterior use.

Toxicity

Naphthol Reds are not considered toxic. They may cause eye, skin, or respiratory irritation. Contact with dry pigment should be avoided.

History

Naphthol pigments are actually dyes that are "laked" to form pigments. First developed by the German chemical company Hoechst A.G. before World War I, their use in artist paints began in the 1920s. Pigment Red PR170 is a Naphthol AS pigment, chemically related to the diarylide yellow pigments. The Naphthol AS pigments comprise a range of reds. They are used in plastics, textiles, and printing inks.


Pigment Name

PY74-Hansa Yellow

Pigment Type

monoazo

Chemical Formula

C18H18N4O6

Properties

Pigment PY74 is one of the most commercially important pigments of the Hansa Yellow group, considered superior to many others in its class based on both tinting strength and lightfastness. Several PY74 grades with different particle sizes are available. Grades with finer particle size are more brilliant and transparent. Pigment PY74 ranges from reddish yellow to greenish yellow, with temperature shifts from cool to warm hues. It has high tinting strength and average to slow drying time.

Permanence

This Hansa Yellow has better lightfastness that other yellow monoazo pigments, particularly in the darker shades.

Toxicity

Hansa Yellow has no significant acute hazards, though its chronic hazards have not been well studied.

History

Hansa Yellows were first made in Germany just before WW1 from a series of synthetic dyestuffs called Pigment Yellow. They were intended to be a synthetic replacement for Cadmium Yellow.


Pigment Name

PO16-Dianisidine Orange

Pigment Type

organic, disazo

Chemical Formula

C34H32N6O6

Properties

Dianisidine Orange is a semi-opaque orange dye that can be laked to form a pigment. This pigment  ranges from yellowish to reddish orange in different laked forms.

Permanence

Dianisidine Orange has only fair lightfastness.

Toxicity

A Japanese study in which rats were given large daily doses of Dianisidine Orange revealed no acute toxicity or mutagenic effects.

History

Dianisidine Orange is used mostly in coloring plastics and in inks, in applications where safety is important but lightfastness and longevity are not paramount.
