JC-100 Fluorescent Pigment

FORMALDEHYDE-FREE PLASTIC COLORANTS

With broad compatibility in most plastics, J COLOR JC-100 fluorescent pigment exhibits many advanced properties: brilliant clean fluoresce, superior tinting strength, melt-in type, easy mixing over the range of 135 to 235, low plateout, no formaldehyde emission, good low-temperature (150 to 180) dispersion, etc.  JC-100 series is thus recommended for processes such as extrusion, injection molding and blow molding. in manufacturing of toys, safety equipment, graphic sheeting, display packaging, vacuum-formed products, banners, and many other eye-catching substance.

 Processing Advantages

-          Formaldehyde-free. Environmental-friendly.

-          Melt-in type with low softening point

-          Broad processing temperature range between 135 - 235

-          Greatly reduced plateout in processing equipment, resulting in less downtime.

-          A neutral additive; dose not add or detract from the lubricity of the plastic for processing

-          excellent heat resistance,

 Caution: Some color shift may occur under severe heat conditions. The addition of one part antioxidant per hundred parts of plastic to be processed is recommended to minimize color shift.

 Application in Plastics

 Suggested Colorant Level

 For transparent plastics, the fluorescent pigment level needed to develop fluorescent brilliance versus the thickness of the plastic part are recommended below:  

Thickness (mm)

0.1 - 0.25

0.25 - 0.75

0.75 - 1.5

> 1.5

% Pigment by Wt

5.0 - 7.5

3.5 - 5.0

2.5 - 3.5

2.0

 For opaque plastics, fluorescent pigment produces only surface fluorescence (resulting in pastel shades), regardless of the concentration of pigment used.

 Colorfastness

The degree of colorfastness of JC-100 pigments depends on the type of plastic, concentration of colorant, film thickness, type and direction of exposure.

 The incorporation of 0.5 to 1.0% ultraviolet screen of benaophenone or benzotriazole types may result in 10 to 30% improvement in exterior light stability. Clear acrylic coatings containing 2 to 4% of UV screens are also usually effective in enhancing exterior colorfastness. However, one should be careful in selecting a compatible UV screen for the particular plastic systems.

Storage

Under conditions that are cool, dry, covered, away from direct sunlight and free of airborne contaminates, the shelf life of the JC-100 pigments will be indefinite. Upon extended exposure to heat and humidity, JC-100 pigments may form hard lumps that must be crushed prior to use.

Toxicity

Tests conducted through independent laboratories have reported that JC-100 fluorescent pigments are essentially non-toxic. Material safety data sheet or MSDS is available upon request.olor Chemicals makes no warranty on the merchantabilit
