Fiorio Colori produces a complete range of lakes of synthetic and natural colorants.
Once precipitated on an aluminum hydrate substrate, the water-soluble dyes form insoluble products with pigmentary properties, coloring by “contact”.
Compared to the water-soluble dyes from which they originate, the lakes have a better resistance to light. Their field of application is exclusively in products with a pH between 4 and 7.
While the color intensity given by the dyes is related to the quantity of product, in the lakes it is related to the level of fineness of the particles: the higher the degree of grinding, the higher the coloring power and, consequently, the smaller the quantity of necessary product.
Fiorio Colori, with its own technical staff, is constantly engaged in research and development of new solutions, many of which are suggested by specific customer needs.
