Formaldehyde - free: With broad compatibility in most plastics, J COLOR JC-100 fluorescent pigment exhibits many advanced properties: brilliant clean fluoresce, superior tinting strength, melt-in type, easy mixing over the range of 135 to 230C, low plateout, no formaldehyde emission, good low-temperature (150 to 180C) dispersion, etc. JC-100 series is thus recommended for processes such as extrusion, injection molding and blow molding. in manufacturing of toys, safety equipment, graphic sheeting, display packaging, vacuum-formed products, banners, and many other eye-catching substance.
Processing Advantages: Formaldehyde-free. Environmental-friendly. Melt-in type with low softening point Broad processing temperature range between 135 - 230C Greatly reduced plateout in processing equipment, resulting in less downtime. A neutral additive; dose not add or detract from the lubricity of the plastic for processing Excellent heat resistance
Caution: Some color shift may occur under severe heat conditions. The addition of one part antioxidant per hundred parts of plastic to be processed is recommended to minimize color shift.
Colorfastness: The degree of colorfastness of JC-100 pigments depends on the type of plastic, concentration of colorant, film thickness, type and direction of exposure.
The incorporation of less than 1.0% ultraviolet screen of benaophenone or benzotriazole types may result in up to 30% improvement in colorfastness. Clear acrylic coatings containing 2 to 4% of UV screens are also usually effective in enhancing colorfastness. However, one should be careful in selecting a compatible UV screen for the particular plastic systems.
Storage: Under conditions that are cool, dry, covered, away from direct sunlight and free of airborne contaminates, the shelf life of the JC-100 pigments will be indefinite. Upon extended exposure to heat and humidity, JC-100 pigments may form lumps that need to be pulverized before use.
Toxicity: JC-100 fluorescent pigments are essentially non-toxic with zero formaldehyde emission and extremely low heavy-metal content, safe to be applied in end products such as toys. Material safety data sheet or MSDS is available upon request.
