This vehicle system has been optimized for use in paper and board, with possible applications with some surface-treated or oxidized films as well.

Typically used to make Process Blue (Cyan) inks, 35% to 55% of RadionBase PBX Phthalo Blue by total formula weight is considered a normal loading for most paste ink formulas.
