A solvent dye is a type of color dye that can dissolves in organic solvents, creating a solution, which we call solvent soluable. The ability to mix with solvents is due to the nonpolar nature of the dye chemicals. This type of dyes is widely used in a range of products including inks, plastics, and resins. Within the class of solvent dyes, there are other types of dyes that relate to specific colors, such as red or yellow and green or blue.
Chemicals that can easily dissolve in other chemicals and form a solution are called solvents. They cannot, however, be dissolved in water. These dyes are completely soluble in organic solvents, which means they will not form a separate layer or residue. The ability of the dye to completely dissolve is important to achieve a consistent color.
Unlike other colorants, solvent dyes do not easily ionize. Ionization refers to a compound’s ability to change polarity by gaining or losing an electron from another compound. This function results that solvent dyes do not dissolve in water, a highly polar substance. This dye class tends to be made of aromatic, colored compounds that easily dissolve. The naming system for these dyes use a color index, following a classification system: solvent + color + number like solvent black 5.
Our solvent dyes are now expoting huge to these countries: Korea, Argentina and Peru. And plan to keep enlarging our market in southeast Asia as well as south America.https://cycolorant.com/products/
