Pigment Yellow 150

Pigment Yellow 150 is yellow pigment powder with greenish shade. It is a heterocyclic azo nickel complex pigment.PY150 has excellent light fastness. Its light fastness can reach 7-8 in full strength coating, and its light fastness and weather fastness decreases little in the tinting system. PY150 also has good acid and alkali resistance in the printing ink, and the coloring strength is good.
