Pigment Yellow 95

Pigment Yellow 95 conforms to FDA, and corresponds to BASF K1500 (formerly Ciba GR Yellow). It has extremely high tinting strength, excellent heat resistance stability,  does not migrate in soft PVC

PY95 is excellent in light and heat resistance, suitable for general-purpose polyolefin plastics. It can be heat resistant to 270~290 °C in polyolefin. No migration occurs in soft PVC applications. When used in HDPE, the warpage of the plastic has little effect. It can also be used for coloring polypropylene and PUR dyeing.

In inks, is mainly used as a high-grade metal decorative ink, and the gravure solvent ink which used for metal decoration and packaging ink.
