Ultramarine Blues (Pigment Blue 29)
UPL is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of Ultramarine Blue. Our Ultramarine Blue is used across a range of products, from chairs for the Beijing Olympics to professional artist colours in Europe. Found in nature as the semi-precious stone Lapis Lazuli, it is highly heat and light stable, tolerates high temperatures, is non-toxic and does not stain cloth. It lends stability to plastic structures, reducing warpage, and is considered an optical brightener and an excellent tinting agent. It is widely used to make whites whiter, to make greys and blacks more attractive, and is a unique and attractive reddish Blue.
At UPL, we manufacture over 50 grades of Ultramarine Blue, varying in colour, strength, moisture content and other physical and chemical properties. We also make more specialized grades, depending on the customer’s needs, including thermal stability, acid resistance, filter pressure values, etc.
We currently cater to the plastics, coating, inks, cosmetics, fiber, stationary, laundry, paints, mining and construction industries.
