Hansa Brilliant Yellow 5GX for Paints and Coatings

Pigment Yellow 74

Transparent Yellow pigment for air-drying paints with considerably higher tinctorial strength and a slightly greener shade than Hansa Yellow G grades which it can often replace to advantage.
Because of the high risk of blooming it is not suitable for stoving enamels.


  • 20-40%* higher tinting strength than other Hansa Yellow G grades (*depending on dispersion parameters)
  • Very good light fastness
  • Recommended for air drying paints
