SoyaSpersion™ 5237 Phthalo Blue
SoyaSpersion 5237 Phthalo Blue is a multi-purpose dispersion of Phthalocyanine Blue (Phthalo Blue) pigment in a near-zero VOC, bio-based litho vehicle for paste inks. SoyaSpersion 5237 Phthalo Blue can be used alone for making many types of Process Blue (Cyan) inks such as Quickset/Sheetfed Lithographic, low-VOC Heatset Web Offset, Business Forms, and Newsinks. 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.
Typically used to make Process Blue (Cyan) inks, 25% to 40% of SoyaSpersion 5237 Phthalo Blue by total formula weight is considered a normal loading for most paste ink formulas.
