Pigment Orange 36

Pigment Orange 36 is orange pigment with reddish shade and bright color. It is much redder than Pigment Orange 13, and its heat resistance is also better. With excellent light fastness and weather resistance, PO36 can be used in automotive paint and the fluidity is very good. When used in PVC, the light fastness will be grade 7-8. And in package printing ink, its light fastness can be grade 6-7, and its solvent resistance and light resistance is good.

Product Details
