Pigments are substances that are able to impart colour to other materials, substances and things. They are colourants that are used to give colour to objects or materials. They are known to be insoluble in water and other solvents. Organic pigments consist of and are composed of carbon chains, compounds and rings. These carbon components make organic pigments very stable.
The majority of pigments used are dry colourants that are often crushed into a fine powder and utilised in the manufacturing industry and the visual arts industry. This powder is combined with a binder which is a mostly neutral or colourless substance that holds and suspends the pigment to create a liquid/fluid colour like paint. This is why there is virtually no difference between pigments and powder pigments, they ultimately are used to achieve the same objective of imparting colour.
Organic pigment powder manufacturers like us; Saujanya Exports, use these very powders to create our colours and pigments. Usually, pigments are manufactured using a simple process that contains washing, drying, powdering and mixing into a colour.
Pigments are divided into 2 categories, namely Natural and Synthetic. Natural pigments are such colourants that can be sourced from natural materials and synthetic pigments are those that are created through chemical and man-made means.
Both Natural and Synthetic pigments are then further categorised into 2 different types, namely Organic and Inorganic pigments. Natural inorganic pigments include substances like iron oxide and lead oxide while examples of synthetic inorganic pigments include sulphides and chromates.
Natural organic pigments are subdivided into colourants sourced from either vegetables or animals. E.g., In the case of the first category, Saffron or Kesar contains crocetin and crocin antioxidant compounds which are also called carotenoid pigments. These pigments are found extensively in nature in plants, bacteria, etc. They impart yellow, red, orange, and purple colours. In the case of the animal category, the pigment Carmine which imparts a bright red colour is sourced from the shells of cochineal insects.
Synthetic organic pigments are sub-divided into 2 types, namely Azo and Non-Azo:
Also, synthetic organic pigments are known to be generally sourced from aromatic hydrocarbons like coal tars as well as other petrochemicals.
Organic pigments come in the following types:
