A Solvent Dye is a dye soluble in organic solvents. It is usually used as a solution in an organic solvent. Solvent dyes are used to color organic solvents, hydrocarbon fuels, waxes, lubricants, plastics, and other hydrocarbon-based nonpolar materials. Fuel dyes are one use of solvent dyes. Their molecules are typically nonpolar or little polar, and they do not undergo ionization. They are insoluble in water. They form a colloidal solution in solvents.They have poor (basic dyes) to good (metal complex based) light fastness.

Used In
  • Paints

  • Inks

  • Plastics & Polymers

  • Coatings And More

Characteristics
  • (Sd)High solubility in recommended mediums as per application

  • (Sd)Excellent light fastness

  • (Sd)High resistance to acid and alkali

  • PSD is high dispersing colorants for plastic application

  • PSD replaces several conventional/ traditional products improvising the effectiveness of the colored polymer
