Coloration of Plastics is a key process which is mainly carried out to improve Plastics’ aesthetics and to enhance Plastics’ performance in use.

Pigments are of two types: organic and inorganic. Organic pigments are brighter, purer, and richer in colour than inorganic pigments; however, they are more susceptible to ultraviolet radiation damage, chemical damage, and colour bleeding. Also, organic pigments are translucent and therefore do not add to the hiding ability of the paint. Inorganic pigments are considered hiding or semi hiding pigments and are low priced. However, the colours of inorganic pigments tend to be earthy and muddy.

Available Pigment with SNG Microns Private Limited


Alpha Blue
Phthalocyanine Pigment Alpha Blue 15:1 is the more heat stable than Pigment Blue 15:0. It is also an alpha modification of CPC (Copper Phthalocyanine Pigment) Blue Crude. We recommend this pigment for PVC Pipe applications. More heat stable form makes it be selected for the polymer / plastic applications. Wide range of grades for specific applications of Phthalocyanine Pigment Blue 15:1 is available with us. 15.3, 15.4 are beta modification of CPC (Copper Phthalocyanine Pigment). 15.0 is alpha modification of CPC but weaker than 15.1

Ultramarine Blue
Ultramarine Blue Pigments offer a unique reddish blue shade that make white shades appear whiter, grey shades appear bluer, and black shades appear deeper.  They are semi-transparent to visible light and provide transparency.

Our Ultramarine Blue pigment properties include ease of dispersion with excellent dimensional stability, resulting in no warping or shrinkage.

Types of Pigments
Based on the method of their formulation, pigments can be categorized into two types: inorganic pigments and organic pigments.

Organic Pigments Inorganic Pigments

Organic Pigments
This type of pigments occurs naturally and they’ve been used for centuries. They’re quite simple in their chemical structure. They’re named organic as they contain minerals and metals that give them their colour. Organic pigment manufacturers produce them through a simple process that’s made of washing, drying, powdering and combining into a formulation.

Compared to inorganic pigments, this usage of these pigments is less frequent and that’s why there are limited number of organic pigment suppliers. These pigments are used when the required colour strength isn’t too much.

Inorganic Pigments
As you can guess by its name, this type of pigments is exactly the opposite type of organic pigments. These pigments are also known as “synthetic pigments.” They’re formulized in labs and offer great scope of control to inorganic pigment manufacturers. Inorganic pigments are manufactured by relatively simple chemical processes such as oxidation.

Inorganic pigment mainly gets used in plastics, paints, synthetic fibers and ink industry. It is useful where bright colours are required, organic pigments are used as they bolster high colour strength. Inorganic pigments include white opaque pigments which are commonly used to lighten other colours and also to provide opacity.
