Pigments and dyes are complex raw materials and they require an extraordinary understanding. Across our laboratories, we have over 90 years of collective color knowledge—so we understand them very well.
We don't rely solely on sophisticated equipment to address your issues and we don't write boilerplate conclusions or remedies. Our application specialists approach each project with an unbiased perspective and thoroughly consider how your pigment or dye will work in an integrated system. Our team's unparalleled color experience and interpretation of global regulatory requirements are evident in the innovative, reliable, and compliant results we deliver.

The superiority of our pigment dispersions lies in our ability to control pigment size—and tailoring it to create custom formulations for specific client applications. With sub-micron grinding, we can design a pigment that behaves more like a dye. With a slightly larger pigment size, we can control opacity for it to hold up against fading or adjust other characteristics.
When faced with several unknown factors, it may be necessary to analyze at a deeper level.This might include identifying compounds in a sample, determining the composition of elements in a molecule, or the structure and amount of a compound—all of which might be impacting the outcome of a formulation.
FDA MIGRATION STUDIES
When performing in-house FDA migration studies, we do assess the results—but we go beyond what the numbers reveal. We team with our Product Stewardship group to ensure the data you receive has been interpreted accurately—and can advise on compliancy for your end application.
SALTS ANALYSIS WITH SONICATION
Whether determining the residual sulfate content after solvent dye production or validating the absence of it to ensure purity in pigment dispersions, preparing samples for salt analysis by performing sonication provides a greater level of accuracy.
