PVC, PU, Silicone & Plastisol
These are plastics systems which require more complex processing but these can also be pigmented with Sterling Colour daylight fluorescent pigments. The choice of pigment depends very much on the chemistry of the system and the particular processing conditions. Low molecular weight monomers can present individual challenges of bleed resistance.
Sterling Colour offers four pigment types, all of which will provide very bright, clean colours.
210 Series is the recommended product for these applications where its unique chemistry provides the optimal blend of heat stability and resistance to bleed and migration. It can be used in almost every type of plastics application where processing is below 220°C.
810 Series offers very bright, clean colours in systems where resistance to bleed and migration are not quite so important.
850 Series is a high strength product and is a popular choice for calendared PVC and polyurethane and also works particularly well in plastisols. 850 Series is also best used in systems where resistance to bleed and migration are not critical requirements.
911 Series does not carry any resistance to bleed and migration and is only suitable for spread-coated PVC.
