Hansa Brilliant Yellow 2GX 70 for Paints and Coatings

Pigment Yellow 74

Hansa Brilliant Yellow 2GX 70 is a yellow pigment with good fastness to light and weathering for air-drying paints. Very good hiding power as an organic pigment. As it has good rheological properties, it can be used even at high pigment concentrations (about 20 % relative to solid binder) without any effect on gloss. Eminently suitable for the production of intense opaque yellow shades for lead-free or low-lead paints. Not suitable for stoving enamels because of the high risk of blooming
