Bright Neon Pigments (Fluorescent)
These pigments do not have approval for cosmetic applications. Our Cosmetic Neon Pigments are a separate product.
Apart from being bright neon colors in normal light these coloured powders also glow vividly under UV light.
More lightfast (non-fading) than any Fluorescent Pigments but will still fade in exterior applications and on long term exposure to UV light.
Surface Chemistry and applications
These pigment are of thermoset type and designed for use where high resistance to solvents and temperature are required.
Used in coatings, inks and paints where strong solvents and/or temperature is used.
Not recommended for mixing into water based mediums.
Require proper mixing into resins (not just simple stirring). People with experience of how to add powders to resins get excellent results. They are not recommended for the more casual resin user who just wants to quickly stir the pigments in. For use in resin do the following: Start with pigment and add resin (Part A) to the pigment and mix until uniform. Then add hardener (Part B) and stir as per normal for resin.
Also suitable for following applications:
- PVC and Vinyl Plastics
- Paints based on polar solvents
- Flexo and Gravure Printing Inks
- Thermosetting Plastic Polymer (<180oC)
- Solvent Based Silk Screen Ink
- Aerosol Paints
- Vinyl Plastisols for Textiles
- Textile Printing and Dyeing
- UV Curing Inks
Require good mixing into the medium they are added to. Simple stirring is not sufficient.
More lightfast (non-fading) than many Fluorescent Pigments but will still fade in exterior applications and on long term exposure to UV light.
Avoid creating excess dust when using the powders. Dust generated by these powders can be flammable at certain concentrations in air so don't work near a source of heat or sparks.
