Permanent Yellow DGR is a modified, opaque diarylide yellow pigment based on Pigment Yellow 12. It meets the requirements for the European Scale for Process printing. Compared to a Pigment Yellow 12 it exhibits a distinctly better light fastness (1 step on blue scale), distinctly higher color strength and excellent flow properties. Recommended for paste inks (newspaper printing) as well as for solvent- and water based packaging gravure and flexographic printing inks.
