Pigment Red 122

Pigment Red 122 is a very bright red with bluish shade, and its color is close to magenta. It has outstanding thermal stability and excellent migration resistance. It gives magenta color and pure blue-red. PR122 is mainly used in high-end inks, paints, and plastics (PS,PO,ABS,PVC,PC,PBT) , the coloring of rubber and the coloring of the original pulp of synthetic fibers. At present, the output and grades of high-performance organic pigments in China are developing rapidly, and annual capacity of PR122 is over 1,500 tons.

Product Details


Pigment Red 122 is brilliant red pigment powder close to magenta. It has bluish shade type and reddish shade type, and its dispersibility is good. Transparent and semi-transparent type are available. It has high heat resistance and excellent light fastness. The effect is similar to Clariant Pink E. PR 122 is good in alkali, acid resistance, solvent resistance as well as migration resistance. It has a heat resistance over 280 degree and it has good handling properties in printing ink and printing ink for laminated package films
