Nerosol dyes are true solutions, not dispersions, and therefore have very little or no filterable solid matter. However, they are high-strength concentrates with typical dye content of 20–35% relative to “pure” powder. The actual dye content may vary, as the product is quality controlled for color strength and not for solids content.
Fast drying / flash point
Nerosol dyes are relatively fast drying, yet they have been formulated with flash points that allow them to be shipped as non-flammable in accordance with IATA and U.S. DOT regulations.
Nerosol US (Universal System) dye liquids are produced using HAPS free, lower flash point solvents and glycol ethers for added flexibility in final coating and finishes formulations. They are labeled as flammable. The Nerosol SN range is formulated with predominantly ethanol and to a lesser degree water.
At room temperature and when kept sealed in original containers, Nerosol dyes should remain stable for a minimum of one year. If the dyes are exposed to prolonged cold or freezing conditions, some gelling or precipitation of the dye may occur. This can generally be reversed by heating the dye to approximately 100˚F (38˚C) and applying agitation.
