Formaldehyde-free Fluorescent Pigments for Waterborne and Solventborne Systems


Formaldehyde-free Fluorescent Pigments for Waterborne and Solventborne Systems

(Posted on 28/07/16)

As of 1st April 2015, formaldehyde has been reclassified as a category 1B carcinogen (presumed to have carcinogenic potential for humans).

The entry into force date for the above reclassification was eventually confirmed as 1st January 2016. Some formulators may wish to consider formaldehyde-free raw materials as a consequence. Cornelius is pleased to offer two ranges of formaldehyde-free fluorescent pigments from Radiant Color N.V., both spanning a full range of colours.

Radglo GRT: The excellent brightness and resistance to solvents means the Radglo GRT series is ideal for use in a variety of solventborne applications (inks, paints, and many others). In particular, it works well in PVC. Read the technical datasheet here

Radglo GWT: Offering good water resistance, lightfastness and heat stability, the Radglo GWT range is broadly compatible with a wide range of waterborne systems including inks, paints, textile coatings, and more. Read the technical datasheet here
