Chemical Formula



This Hansa Yellow ranges from reddish yellow to greenish yellow with temperature shifts from cool to warm hues. It has good tinting strength and average to slow drying time.


Hansa Yellow PY74 has excellent lightfastness, particularly in the darker shades. Pigment PY74LF is a proprietary preparation of PY74 for which the manufacturer claims better lightfastness.


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


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.
