Fuel Lubricants

Fuel, Oil & Lubricants

OrcoSolve™ dyes are used extensively in fuel, oil, lubricant, grease, and wax coloration applications. These highly-concentrated heat-stable colorants, available in liquid and powder form, are soluble in polar solvents and hydrocarbon-based oil and lubricants. Their high concentration allows the formulator to use minimal amounts of dye thereby causing no change to the product’s original physical characteristics. In addition, their stability to high heat makes them a good match for lubricants, engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, and grease. Some lubricants are water-based and would require our water-soluble dyes or possibly pigments.

Ink & Toner

Organic Dyes and Pigments is a supplier of water-soluble OrcoScribe WS™ purified and crude ink dyes, and solvent-soluble OrcoSolve SS™ solvent dyes.,  These colorants are applicable to ink-jet printers, ink pads, roller-point pens, permanent, erasable, and fluorescent markers, and other specialty applications.
