Global Pigments and Dyes Market: Overview
A pigment is a chemical material uses to color other materials. It is the chemical material which changes its color into transmitted light. A pigment may absorb certain wavelengths of light. A pigment possesses high tinting strength as compared to other coloring materials. Pigmentation is totally differed from luminescence, fluorescence, and phosphorescence. This phenomenon is completely different from other light emitting materials. Dyes are naturally colored substances and have resemblance with the substrate on which they are applied. For instance, Clariant—a world leader in specialty chemicals—introduced a Neosan Lucido-pioneering pigment. It is the unique discovery for the leather industry to retain leather’s natural characteristics.
