We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions to give you more information about ORCO and what we provide. Please visit our Contact page or contact your ORCO Representative if you have a question that has not been answered.

Are your dyes and pigments bio-derived and all-natural?

Despite our name, our dyes are NOT the all-natural “organic” type dyes as the word is used these days. Our dyes are derived from Organic Chemistry and manufactured via traditional methods. However, we do have a number of dyes that ARE either EPA Approved, Safe for human contact, or approved for food contact.

Will you sell to consumers?

While we don’t mind hearing occasionally from Aunt Mildred who wants to re-dye her couch cover, we only sell to established businesses in production-sized quantities – 25 lb and larger boxes of powdered dyes, drums and totes of liquid dyes.

Do you have dyes in stock?

We attempt to keep a stock of our most popular dyes and pigments for our continuing and repeat customers. We do work closely with our customers on forecasting so that we can enhance product availability. Your ORCO Representative can provide a better specific dye or pigment availability status.
