Pigment Yellow 97

Pigment yellow 97 is semi-transparent and yellow powder with neutral shade. It is similar to Pigment Yellow 1, but with better fastness and good heat resistance. In baking and self-drying coating, the light fastness of Pigment Yellow 97 is 6-7, and the heat resistance can reach 200℃/10min. It can be applied in the high end decorative coating. The other main application is in different plastics with high light fastness and migration resistance

Product Details


Pigment Yellow 97 is medium yellow shade green powder, which is very close to pigment yellow 1. In soft and rigid PVC, the heat resistance of light fastness can reach 200℃/10min. In HDPE, there is no size change at 240℃/5min. It also applied well in PE and polystyrene coloring.
