Overview of the market development of ink-based organic pigments
The use of organic pigments as an important colorant in printing inks is quite extensive. According to statistics, more than 60% of organic pigments are used in the ink industry; the development of domestic organic pigments is near It has been quite rapid for more than ten years, and the quality has been effectively improved. Basically, it can meet some popular requirements of inks, but it is undeniable that it is in line with the products of some internationally renowned companies. In comparison, there is still a certain gap between domestic pigments. Pigment Orange 64 Uses: Mainly used for high-grade paints, inks, plastics (PS PO ABS PVC PC PBT), coloring of rubber and coloring of pure pulp of synthetic fibers. Pigment Red 254 is a benzimidazolone, giving a blue light red hue, excellent heat stability, light and weather fastness, and migration resistance. It is mainly used for coloring plastics (PVC, HDPE) and coatings. Pigment red F3RK pigment is a substance that can make objects dye. Pigments are soluble and insoluble, distinguishing between inorganic and organic. Inorganic pigments are generally mineral substances. Humans have long known the use of inorganic pigments, using colored soil and ore, to paint and smear the body on rock walls. Organic pigments are generally obtained from plants and marine animals, such as madder blue, garcinia cambogia, and ancient Roman purple from shellfish. At present, the total output of ink in the world is about 3.5 million tons, of which the total output of ink in China is about 350,000 tons. China has become the world's fourth largest ink producer (Produce), and its ink output is increasing by more than 10% every year. With the continuous deepening of the WTO, China has become a processing base for printing packaging products. Although the country has recently cancelled the export tax rebate policy for inks, the growth of China's ink industry will still far exceed the national economy. (Economy) growth rate. With the improvement of people's livelihood (basic explanation: people's livelihood), the level of flowing water has increased, and the demand for inks used in books, magazines, and newspapers has also increased. Yellow 12, red 57: 1, and blue 15 : The demand for third-grade pigments has also risen (rise). In addition, environmental protection (Environmental protection) is getting more and more attention. Environmental protection (flexo, gravure, offset) inks are growing rapidly; benzene-based gravure inks, high-solvent (character: transparent, colorless liquid) ratio flexo inks and High VOC. The use of offset inks with high aromatic content will decline year by year; due to the limit of harmful heavy metals, many inorganic pigments will be replaced by organic pigments. In addition, the relatively low amount of ink consumption per capita in China also means that the potential for ink growth (referring to the possibility of personal ability development) will be huge.
