SudapermTM: premium-quality organic pigments


Sudarshan’s new Sudaperm™ Violet 2945K (PV 23) is a blue-violet color pigment which is now widely used in the plastics industry for LDPE, HDPE, PP, PS, EVA and PVC applications. It stands out for its excellent color strength, low filter pressure value and superb dispersing properties.

New high-performance pigments for plastics and coatings

The company’s innovative Sudaperm™ Yellow 3031K (PY 138) is a bright yellow pigment that features a slight greenish hue, excellent color strength and low filter pressure value. It is recommended for use in plastics such as LDPE, HDPE, PP, PS, EVA and PVC, offering impressive non-fade properties, weather fastness and heat stability. The pigment’s exceptional dispersing properties make it very well-suited to coloring single pigment concentrates (SPC), especially in polyolefins.


Sudaperm™ Yellow 3032 C (PY138) is an opaque, bright greenish-yellow pigment with excellent light and weather resistance that was specially developed for use in coatings applications. It has become popular for a wide variety of systems like water-based decorative color coatings, powder coatings and all types of industrial coatings. The new pigment offers good covering power, low viscosity for water-based paints and outstanding color fastness.
