Environmentally friendly yellow-orange pigments provide colour opportunities

17 June 2013

Rockwood Pigments’ Solaplex range of bright Yellow to Orange inorganic pigments based on Color Index Pigment Yellow 216 has been granted a Food Contact Notification (FCN1252) by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).

The approval from the FDA opens up new formulating options in coloured coatings, plastics and construction related applications that demand high performance or indirect food contact. Extending the colour palette with new chemistry PY216 extends the limited colour palette of traditional colours and enables brilliant shades with long-lasting UV durability, good hiding power and stability at high temperatures up to 400°C.
