Solubility in an organic solvent is a characteristic physical property of a solvent dye. Some of these typical solvents are alcohols, ethers, ketones, aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, oils, fats, waxes and chlorinated hydrocarbons. There are however important applications in which the solvent dye is incorporated directly into the product to be colored.
Uses for Solvent Dyes / Oil Soluble Dyes
Their very nature – soluble in non-polar mediums – allows their versatility and many uses. Oil or solvent dye is used in applications such as foil printing, printing inks, marking pens, ball point pens, candles and other waxes, polishes, leathers, wood stains, acrylic resins, varnishes and shellacs. They are used in signaling smoke and in the pyrotechnics industry. These dyes are also used to color lubricants in the automotive and industrial cutting industries.
However, the most frequent application of solvent dyes is in the plastics industry. Within the industrial plastics community, solvent-based dyes are used to color a variety of solid materials, such as acetates, nylon, polyester, acrylics, PVC, PMMA, PETP, polystyrene and styrene monomers.
In addition, many solvent dyes are used as components by the biological stain manufacturing community to produce stains that will identify various cell structure components in medical diagnostics and scientific research.
New uses are always being found for solvent and oil soluble dyes. An Abbey Color representative can help with your specific application.

What are Solvent Dyes?
A solvent day is a dye which is soluble in organic solvents and is frequently used as a solution in those solvents. This category of dyes is used to color items such as waxes, lubricants, plastics, and other hydrocarbon-based nonpolar materials. Any dyes used in fuels, for example, would be considered solvent dyes. They are not soluble in water, however.
Solvent dyes come in red, yellow, blue, and green colors.
