More About Color Pigment
Color pigment is an insoluble material that provides color, opacity, gloss control to specific functions. It is applied not as solutions but as finely ground solid particles mixed with a liquid. Color Pigments may be organic or inorganic. The majority of inorganic pigments are brighter and last longer than organic ones. Organic pigments made from natural sources used for centuries. Synthetic organic color pigments obtained from coal tars and other petrochemicals. Inorganic pigments made by relatively simple chemical responses or are found naturally as piles of earth.
The dried precipitated pigment might be in a form used immediately, but often these raw pigmentary materials require further mechanical processing, heating or chemical treatment to render them more useful as pigments. Inorganic pigments have a much larger average particle size than organic pigments. The particles sizes of inorganic pigments are much closer to this optimum than those of organic pigments, which tend to be much lower. It is the main reason why most organic pigments are considered transparent and most inorganic pigments opaque. With their larger surface area, organic pigments give much higher color strength.
Knowing the difference between organic and inorganic color pigment, you can choose which will best suit your specific application. We, at A. S. Paterson Company Limited, are excited to be of service to you. For more information, give us a call or check out our website.
