Hot nylon shades are ideal on their own or can be mixed together to create more intense colour schemes.
Each nylon brights swatch ring set includes a BHT-free amber UV pouch to protect the colours while not in use.
Includes COLOR MANAGER software download (a saving of £32/39 €) enabling digital design with all PANTONE Colour libraries
Of these 21 super bright colours, 14 contain flavine or rhodamine acid dyestuff; this qualifies them as “true” fluorescents in that they absorb invisible ultraviolet light and emit it as visible light, increasing the colour’s perceived brightness. However, colours containing fluorescent dyes are, by nature, less resistant to the degrading effects of light and water. There are treatments that can be added to increase colour fastness and durability. To learn more about managing fluorescent colours, visit www.pantone.com/nylonbrights/colorfastness

Every PANTONE nylon brights dye lot is evaluated against a master digital standard and must pass both digital and visual evaluation. All colours are dyed in Nylon 6.6, a much improved fiber for light fastness and wash fastness over Nylon 6.
