Chemical Formula



Perylene Red is a moderately intense, semi-opaque, medium red pigment, appearing somewhere between a Cadmium Red and a Cadmium Deep Red hue. It has excellent brightness and tinting strength. Its partial transparency makes it useful as a glazing color.


Perylene Red has excellent lightfastness and permanence, but its tints may darken after extended exposure to sunlight. It is not considered suitable for exterior use.


Perylene Red has no significant acute toxicity. Its long term hazards are currently unknown.


Perylenes have been used as vat dyes since 1912, but they were not manufactured and sold as pigments until 1957.
