Summary

About two years ago we started a research project at Drakenfeld to develop stains with improved dispersion characteristics. We felt the importance, magnitude, and complexity of this project was such that we needed to enlist the aid of our other Ciba-Geigy facilities. Besides the Drakenfeld's facilities at Washington, PA, the technical laboratories at Ardsley, NY; paint laboratories at Newport, DE; and the Corporate Research facilities at Marley, Switzerland, were also utilized. By using all these resources we could benefit from the knowledge and experience applied to other types of pigments and dyes. These pigments and dyes included classical organics, high performance organics, and classical inorganics, such as lead chromate, chrome oxide, and cadmium reds and yellows.
