AromataGroup produces a complete range of synthetic and natural dyes and lakes. 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, lakes have a better resistance to light. Their field of application is exclusively in products with a pH between 4 and 7. Normally, the colour intensity given by the colorants is correlated to the quantity of product; with lakes, it is related to the degree of fineness of the particles: the higher is the grinding level, the higher is the coloring power and, consequently, the lower is the quantity of product required.
