Summary

Several factors must be considered in selecting a pigment or pigments for a specific application. These factors include the extent and tinctorial strength of the required palette, color uniformity requirements, costs, the compatibility of selected components, whether the pigment is to be used in masstone or letdown, the stability requirements during processing, and particle size requirements.
