JC-200 Fluorescent Pigment
melt-in type and formaldehyde-free colorants, JCOLOR®
JC-200 series fluorescent pigments are designed for coloring
high performance plastics under higher temperature processing
conditions. They are universal plastic colorants with broad
compatibility, very good fade-resistant property, outstanding
heat stability, excellent
plateout resistant, and minimal
color shifts over a wide processing temperature range. JC-200
series can be used for preparing extruded color compounds and
liquid color dispersions for use in
injection, rotational and blow molding, extruded film and
sheet, blown and calendared film, vacuum forming, casting,
Specifications of the Pigment:
properties of the plastic,
level of colorant loading, film or object thickness,
presence of a protective overcoat or agent and the nature and
incident angle of the light source are among the factors
affecting fading. An improvement of 10 to 30% in exterior
light stability results from the incorporation of 0.5 to 1.0%
of a benzotriazole or benzophenone type UV screen. Care should
be taken in selecting an UV screening compound that is
compatible with the plastic in which it is to be incorporated.
In Plastic Systems
can be employed to color the following plastics:
recommended, but thorough test before using is
safety equipment, consumer product containers, toys, sheeting
and graphics arts displays, sporting goods and apparel, visual
attention-oriented packaging, wire coating, and housewares.
noted, JC-200 is recommended for plastics systems with
processes temperatures up to 300°C. The addition of 1% of an
antioxidant can result in enhancement in heat-stability.
JC-200 series can be processed easily without dispersion aids.
But if it is determined that processing aids are necessary,
zinc-based additives should be avoided whenever possible since
the presence of zinc tends to cause color shift.
Under conditions that are cool, dry, covered, away from direct
sunlight and free of airborne contaminates, the shelf life of
the JC-200 pigments will be indefinite.
