SoyaSpersion 1240 GS is a high tint strength, multi-purpose dispersion of  40% Triarylmethane Violet & Blue (Phthalocyanine Blue) pigment in a Zero VOC, high bio content multipurpose vehicle for conventional paste inks. SoyaSpersion 1240 GS can be used alone for making many types of Green Shade Reflex Blue inks. Typical Reflex Blue formulas call for 25 to 50% loading of SoyaSpersion 1240 GS. SoyaSpersion 1240 GS is ideal for making Reflex Blue inks for color blends. Additionally, the high solids content of SoyaSpersion pigment preparations permit their use for high adhesion lithographic inks intended for printing on plastic film and metal. Metallic driers such as cobalt, manganese, zirconium and cerium are particularly effective when used with SoyaSpersion products.

Additionally, SoyaSpersion 1240 GS can be used to "tone" many black inks, using approximately 3 to 10% for most paste inks.
