Compared to other pigments, there are various types of red azo pigment; it is more complicated than other color pigments. Therefore, the manufacturing company needs to modify the color hue and particle size to each customer request, and the quantity of each manufacturing lot is not large. Additionally, pigment strength and its resistance against light, water, organic solvent, chemical reagent, etc. also needs to be suitably modified to each customer’s request. Lastly, red azo organic pigment needs to be carefully chosen for individual usage such as for paint, printing inks, toner and inkjet ink, and so on. Pigment needs to be finely tuned for high quality, especially for inkjet ink and toner.
Fuji Pigment has been meticulously making effort in this regard, and that is the major reason why they have been active in high-level research and manufacturing of red azo organic pigment over 80 years. Fuji Pigment also has extensive knowledge in the manufacturing technology of color ink products such as ink for stationery, stamp and inkjet ink etc.
With their pigment and color ink knowledge, they are now ready to accelerate the red azo organic pigment and color inks sale to outside of Japan. Fuji Pigment is also planning to build a foreign branch office and manufacturing facility, pending increased demand for pigment and color ink.
