Application Information

Printing Inks

MONARCH 280 is a high structure pigment black that is broadly applicable in a variety of inks. It is particularly suitable for web offset and gravure printing where matte finish is required. It also offers very blue undertone, excellent hold out or lay with excellent dispersibility.


This pigment black can be used in a variety of coatings applications. It is recommended for underbody/underhood automotive, general industrial, or architectural trade sales applications where high jetness is not required. It is also recommended for use as a tinting black since the relatively large particle size allows for high loading while the high structure allows less mobility in the wet film of the applied coating. This reduces problems with floating and flooding in liquid tinting applications. It can be easily dispersed using a high speed disperser for liquid coatings or a single screw extruder for powder coatings.

Other Applications

In addition to the applications listed above, this product is commonly used as a pigment in Concrete & Cement and Metallurgical Applications.
