Hansa Brilliant Yellow 2GX 72-S for Paints and Coatings

Pigment Yellow 74

Hansa Brilliant Yellow 2GX 72-S is a surface-modified version of our well-known Hansa Brilliant Yellow 2GX 70-S.
It is coloristically and performance-wise very close to the well-known Hansa Brilliant Yellow 2GX 70-S.
Through the pigment's modification, optimum tinting strength can be achieved in relatively short time using a dissolver and suitable dispersing agents in waterborne systems. The simplified dispersion process that does not include a bead mill results in a cost efficient manufacturing of pigment dispersions.
