Hostafine Red P2GL 30

Pigment Red 179

Hostafine Red P2GL 30 is a pigment dispersion of approx. 25% pigment and is based on nonionic dispersing and wetting agents and glycol. The Colour Index of the basic pigment is Pigment Red 179. The extremly low particle size distribution gives very good gloss, transparency and sedimentation properties in aqueous systems. Hostafine Red P2GL is suitable for stationery, woodstains, latex and viscose fibres where high lightfastness and weatherfastness is required.Hostafine pigment preparations are especially suitable for water-based transparent wood stains. They can also be used for other applications such as aqueous emulsion paints, glass paints, water-colors, latex and water resistant inks, inks for fiber-tip fineliner and roller-tip pens. A final evaluation in the customer system is necessary.


  • Ultra finely dispersed pigment preparations
  • High tinting strength and brilliance
  • Outstanding transparency
  • Superior fastness properties compared to dyes
  • Easy-to-handle liquid pigment preparation
  • Highly consistent quality
