Pigments, Inks, and Dyes

Overview Industry Overview:

In our modern world of color printing, flashy graphic banners, and colorful office supplies, the demand for quality pigments and inks is off the charts. Pigments, inks, and dyes can accomplish much more than this, though. They are utilized for contrast materials in medical imaging, dye-based laser beams are utilized in astronomical and spectroscopic research, and special inks are used as anti-counterfeiting measures.

Inks can be created from pigments or dyes, and the two are primarily differentiated by their solubility. Dyes are water-soluble solutions that cling to whatever they are applied to. Pigments, on the other hand, are insoluble materials combined with binders which are designed to be steadfast and resilient.

App Common Applications:

  • Curing – UV, EB etc.
  • Photo initiator, monomers, oligomers, etc.
