PR179-Perylene Maroon


Pigment Name

PR179-Perylene Maroon

Pigment Type

organic, anthraquinone

C26H14N2O4

Properties

Perylene Maroon is a transparent, dull to moderately dull, deep red pigment. Its transparency makes it useful as a glazing color.  Its mixing complement is Phthalo Green, and together they produce a pure black that is darker than most carbon-based pigments.

Permanence

Perylene Maroon has excellent permanence and lightfastness, and it can be an appropriate replacement for Anthraquinone Red in watercolor form.

Toxicity

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

History

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