Pigment Information

This color contains the following pigments:

PR176-Benzimidazolone Carmine


Pigment Name

PR176-Benzimidazolone Carmine

Pigment Type

organic, azo

Chemical Formula

C32H24N6O5

Properties

Benzimidazolone Carmine is a staining, dull red transparent pigment with high tinting strength. Its color is similar to, although somewhat darker than, Rose Madder, the natural source of the historic color Alizarin Crimson. Because it stains and tints much more strongly than natural Rose Madder, care is required to achieve the same effects.

Permanence

Although it is not absolutely lightfast, Benzimidazolone Carmine has excellent lightfastness for a transparent red organic pigment, and as a result, it is often chosen as a more permanent pigment to replace Alizarin Crimson.

Toxicity

Benzimidazolone Carmine is not considered toxic.

History

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. They differ very widely in hue.
