Distinguishing Features

Hostatint Blue A-BTR 100-ST is much redder in hue than Hostatint Blue A-BTG 100-ST. While the latter is the preferred choice for blending with Hostatint Yellow A-N4G 100-ST to achieve halogen-free greens. Hostatint Blue A-BTR 100-ST is preferred for blending with Hostatint Magenta A-EB 100-ST to achieve halogen-free violets. Both can be used as sole colorants on wood or on transparent substrates, or in combination with aluminum or mica pigments for metallic or mineral effect shades.
