- Which Bismuth Vanadate Pigments should be used for Plastics?
Bismuth Vanadate pigments have been incorporated into plastics since their inception over 35 years ago. They provide outstanding heat-fastness, light-fastness and chemical resistance across all colour depths, and are exceptional products for low warping applications. Coupled with their clean chromatic greenish yellow shade and exceptional hiding power, they are an excellent choice for many plastic applications.
- LANSCO 1454-LW DPP Red 254
LANSCO 1454-LW is a special grade of DPP Red which exerts less of an influence on the degree of warpage in polyolefin parts while having all of the same desirable properties of a classical DPP Red pigment, including FDA approval. DPP Red is notorious for its high degree of influence on polyolefin crystallinity (warpage). LANSCO 1454-LW minimizes this problem.
