SoyaSpersion™ 1237 GS PERM Reflex Blue
Packaging Options:

SoyaSpersion 1237 PERM Reflex Blue is a high tint strength, red shade, multi-purpose dispersion of 37% Carbazole Violet 23 & Blue 15:3 (Phthalocyanine Blue) pigment in a near-zero VOC multipurpose vehicle for conventional paste inks. SoyaSpersion 1237 PERM Reflex Blue  can be used alone for making many types of fade-proof, chemically-resistant Green Shade Reflex Blue inks. Typical Reflex Blue formulas call for 30 to 50% loading of SoyaSpersion 1237 PERM  Reflex Blue. SoyaSpersion 1237 PERM Reflex Blue is acceptable for making Reflex Blue inks for color blends, but SoyaSpersion 1237 PERM Relex Bue has a more green tone which is preferable for making reflex blue blending base.


Additionally, SoyaSpersion 1237 PERM Reflex Blue can be used to "tone" many black inks, using approximately 3 to 10% for most paste inks. ​ Helpful note: To minimize bronze reflex, use high gloss letdown vehicle with maximum hard resin content. For maximum bronze reflex, use low resin, high filler content letdown vehicle.
