Properties

Basacid® dyes are high-purity, water-soluble dyes. They offer vibrant colours and excellent tinting strength for exceptional photo-quality printing.

Orasol® high-grade, solvent-soluble dyes are metal-complex dyes in powder form. They are readily soluble in a large number of organic solvents. They give rise to intense colours with high transparency and high chromaticity.

Neptun® dyes are metal-free solvent dyes with high purity and very low insoluble fractions.

Lumogen® are brilliant specialist pigments for crack detectors, fluorescent markings, artist’s colours, crayons and wax crayons.

Applications

Basacid® water-soluble dyes are intended for aqueous inkjet inks.

Orasol® dyes are used in solvent-based printing inks in all kinds of printing technologies and applications. They can be applied to most substrates. When applied to metal foil or transparent films, Orasol® dyes give excellent brightness, transparency and colour depth. In combination with metallic or pearlescent pigments stunning effects can be created. Many Orasol® dyes combine these attributes with good light fastness.

Neptun® dyes are used for the colourant in the printing industry.
