Pigment Dispersions in Silicone Carrier: PDI Type 61

PDI Type 61 colorants are smooth, workable pastes comprised of the highest-quality pigments dispersed in a silicone vehicle, totally compatible with all silicone formulations. Ferro silicone paste colors are designed for use at concentrations from 0.5 percent to 4.0 percent depending on the base material and desired color.

Ferro silicone paste colors work well in practically any silicone application or process. They are commonly used for precoloring RTV1 and RTV2 sealants, coatings and molding processes, as well as heat-cured molding and coatings and liquid silicone injection molding.

Colorant vehicle
