Pigment Dispersions in DINP Plasticizers: PDI Type 48

PDI Type 48 colorants are smooth, workable pastes comprised of the highest-quality pigments dispersed in a DINP plasticizer, totally compatible with all polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin formulations.

Colorant vehicle

Di-iso-nonyl phthalate, a monomeric phthalate ester which provides good permanence, low-temperature flexibility, and good heat and light stability for polyvinyl chloride and other thermoplastic resins. This industry standard has FDA approval for certain packaging applications. This monomeric phthalate ester's wide range of compatibility makes it an ideal color carrier for such resins as:

  • Acrylics
  • Alkyds
  • Cellulose
  • Cellulose
            acetate-butyrate
            acetate-proprionate
  • Chlorinated rubber
  • Ethyl cellulose
  • Nitrile
  • Nitro-cellulose
  • Phenolics
  • Polyamides
  • Polycarbonates
  • Polyesters
  • Polystyrene
  • Polyvinyl butyl
  • Polyvinylidene chloride
  • PVC
  • SBR

Typical applications

  • Adhesives
  • Coatings
  • Film and sheeting
  • Molding and extruding
  • Plastisols and rubber

Types of pigments

  • Energy Efficient
  • Chemical resistant
  • FDA compliant
  • FD&C compliant
  • Fluorescent
  • Heat stable
  • Heavy metal free
  • Organic
  • Inorganic
  • Light stable
  • Pearlescent

Energy Efficient (Cool) Colors

A range of single pigment dispersions that have infared (heat) reflective properties. These dispersions can be combined in various ways to yield an array of colors that are ideal for many applications.

Specific Applications
