Cinilex Red SR3C (PR 177) is a transparent blue shade red pigment, which is a fantastic tinting partner of Cinilex DPP Red SR1C (PR 254) and Cinilex DPP Red SR2P (PR 254) in OEM and industrial paint applications. Cinilex Red SR3C is FDA compliant and suitable for food contact application. Good performance in polyolefin and PVC.
