A key feature of polymer soluble dyes is high solubility that they exhibit in engineering plastics. Therefore, they provide high transparent shades which makes them the preferred choice for car- and signal-lights over pigments. Pigments used, in general results in more opaque coloristic.

In addition, all dyes from our PHILOPLAST® range offer brilliant shades with high color strength : both are beneficial for high visibility.

Injection molding is the preferred technology. These molded color filters are used in the production of car tail lights and also for signal lights used for traffic control and road marking. Polymer soluble dyes are also widely used for illuminating advertising and neo signs.
