Products

BK type fluorescent pigments

BK fluorescent offset ink concentrates contain fine particles and have a high colour strength.

Benefits

  • High colour strength.
  • Excellent heat and chemical resistance.
  • Perfect for high speed printing with lithographic printing ink.   

AK type fluorescent pigments

AK type fluorescent offset ink concentrates are developed for comparison with pantone colours.

Benefits

  • Excellent heat and chemical resistance.
  • Perfect for high speed printing with lithographic printing ink.   

HK type fluorescent pigments

HK type fluorescent offset ink concentrates are developed for high colour strength.

Benefits

  • High colour strength.
  • Perfect for high speed printing with lithographic printing ink.   

VS type fluorescent pigments

VS type pigments are thermoset fluorescent pigments with unique spherical particles, (around 3.0-5.0 microns in size). They are similar to VA type pigments in their application. They also possess strong solvent resistance properties.

Benefits

  • Strong solvent resistance.
  • Specially designed for applications where solvent resistance is required.
  • No migration. 

VSP type fluorescent pigments

VSP type pigments are thermoset fluorescent pigments with unique spherical particles. Their features are similar to VS type pigments in application. VSP type pigments also possess strong heat resistance properties.

Benefits

  • Strong solvent resistance.
  • Specially designed for applications where solvent resistance is required.
  • Strong heat resistance. 

SP type fluorescent pigments

SP type fluorescent pigments are especially recommended for applications demanding greater resistance against polar solvents, plasticisers, heat pressure and migration.

ST type fluorescent pigments

ST type pigments are thermoset fluorescent pigments.

Benefits

  • Strong solvent resistance.
  • No migration.
  • Low formaldehyde. 

VA type fluorescent pigments

VA type pigments are thermoset fluorescent pigments with both strong colour strength and brightness hues. VA type pigments have better solvent and heat resistance properties than both VC and VMN type fluorescent pigments.

Benefits

  • Strong colour strength.
  • Strong brightness hue.
  • Specially designed for applications where solvent resistance is required.

VMN type fluorescent pigments

VMN type thermoplastic fluorescent pigments are available in brilliant colours and have excellent light fastness. VMN type pigments have similar general properties to VC type pigments.

Benefits

  • Strong colour strength.
  • Excellent light fastness.
  • Used in mild solvent based systems.
  • Used in water based systems. 

VC type fluorescent pigments

VC type pigments are thermoplastic fluorescent pigments with extremely bright colours. 

Benefits

  • Extremely bright colours.
  • Used generally in weak solvent based systems.
  • Used generally in water based systems. 

HVP type fluorescent pigments

HVP type fluorescent pigments are available in bright shades. Their large particle size, means that these pigments can reduce the issue of dust pollution which can occur when adding powdered pigments to solutions.

Benefits

  • Good heat stabiliser.
  • Good tinctorial strength.
  • No formaldehyde.
  • Recommended for plastic applications.
  • Large particles – reduces issue caused by dust pollution.   

VPF type fluorescent pigments

The VPF type series of pigments are based on a high heat resistant, thermoplastic resin matrix and have a very fine particle size.

Benefits

  • Good heat stabiliser.
  • High heat resistance.
  • Good tinctorial strength.
  • No formaldehyde.
  • Recommended for plastic applications.  

LVP type fluorescent pigments

LVP type fluorescent pigments have a low softening point (80-90˚C). When the temperature reaches 145˚C, the fluorescent powder melts into plastic well.

Benefits

  • Low softening point (80-90˚C).
  • Good for plastic applications.
  • Good colour shades.  

NP type fluorescent pigments

NP type fluorescent pigments are brightly coloured and have a high colour strength.

Benefits

  • Bright colours.
  • High colour strength.
  • Heat stability.
  • Easily disperse.
  • High transparency.   

NFH type fluorescent pigments

NFH type is the latest innovation in liquid pigments. The very fine particles enable these fluorescent pigments to have exceptional light, heat and chemical stability.

Benefits

  • No formaldehyde.
  • Exceptional light, heat and chemical stability.
  • Liquid pigment – no dust pollution.  

NF type fluorescent pigments

NF type fluorescent pigments are the most recent innovation in liquid pigments; completely overcoming the disadvantage of dust pollution produced by powdered pigments.  The very fine particles enable these fluorescent pigments to have exceptional light, heat and chemical stability.

Note: These pigments are not classified in the colour index.  

Benefits

  • Liquid pigments – no dust pollution issues.
  • No formaldehyde.
  • Exceptional light, heat and chemical stability.
  • Outstanding anti-washing capabilities (when used in textile products).
  • Suitable for an extensive range of applications. 

FK type fluorescent pigments

These latest innovative fluorescent liquid pigments are developed for use with all types of inks. FK type pigments are available in a bright range of colour shades.

Benefits

  • No formaldehyde.
  • Good light, heat and chemical stability
  • Bright colour shades.
  • Liquid pigments – no dust pollution issues.
  • Suitable for all ink applications. 

NT type fluorescent pigments

These thermoplastic fluorescent pigments completely dissolve in solvents. NT type pigments are developed for all types of ink applications, including UV-cure inks. They can also be used with flexible packaging papers, films and foils. 

Benefits

  • Completely dissolves in solvents.
  • Can be used in all types of ink applications.
  • High transparency.
