SIMPERM | Organic pigments for water solvent and oil-based inks
SIMPERM is the trade name for our range of organic pigments of water, solvent and oil-based flexographic, gravure, lithographic, offset, inkjet and UV ink systems. Synthetic organic pigments are carbon-based molecules, usually manufactured under intense heat or pressure from petroleum intermediate compounds, naphthalene acids and other chemicals. These pigments are insoluble in water and most organic solvents but are easily dispersible in water, solvents and other mediums. Our products are classified into two categories; azo and high-performance pigments including phthalocyanine pigments to suit different performance requirements in the final application.
SIMSPERSE A | Acrylic Dispersion Pigments for aqueous applications
SIMSPERSE A is a range of pigment dispersions based on a styrenated Acrylic resin. These are free flowing high strength concentrates for aqueous applications especially inks and construction materials. These are NPE / APE free and are also free of MIT. This range offers benefits such as high gloss and transparency in ink applications and excellent compatibility in construction application demands.
SIMACID | Acid dyes for Flexographic and Gravure Inks
SIMACID is the trade name for our dyes that are a range of acid dyes, They are generally sodium, calcium or ammonium salts of an organic acid which are anionic in aqueous solution. These water soluble dyes are known for their bright hues. Selected dyes are available in different forms such as dry powders, granules and liquids. Suitable for use in various applications, such as flexographic and gravure inks, these dyes are known for their vibrant colors and high strength.
SIMBASE | Basic dyes for Flexographic and Gravure Inks
SIMBASE is the trade name for our range of basic dyes. They are usually the chloride, oxalate or double salt of an organic base which is cationic in solution. These dyes are soluble in polar solvents such as alcohols, ethers, glycols and also in water in the presence of acetic acid. These dyes are known for their vibrant colors and high strength. Available in powder, crystal and acetic acid stabilised liquid forms. Suitable for use in various applications, such as flexographic and gravure inks, these dyes are known for their vibrant colors and high strength.
SIMPSOL | Solvent Dyes for Inkjet, Flexographic and Gravure Inks
SIMPSOL is the trade name for our range of solvent dyes. These are non polar dyes with excellent solubility and miscibility in a wide range of organic solvents in addition to synthetic and natural resins. Popular solvent dyes fall in several main chemical classes; Azo dyes which are yellow to red in color, metal complex dyes, phthalocyanine dyes and Anthraquinones which are green to blue. These dyes are used extensively in various applications, such as inkjet, writing, flexographic and gravure inks.
SIMPEARL | Pearlescent Pigments for Flexographic, Gravure and Offset Inks
SIMPEARL is the trade name for our range of pearlescent effect pigments. These pigments consist of a Mica base along with various metal oxides to produce shades of silver, gold, bronze and copper amongst others. Varying the particle size of the Mica base allows for effects ranging from a fine satin with high hiding power (small particle size) to glitter with high transparency (large particle size). These pigments can be used in combination with other dyes and pigments to produce stunning effects in a range of applications, such as flexographic, gravure and offset inks.
