All the dyestuffs can be supplied as powders. In some cases alternative form are available such as granules or flakes or as liquid concentrates consisting of solid dyestuff solutions in aromatic solvents.
The solvent solubility tables list the maximum standing solubilityˇ¦s at normal room temperatures. In most cases it is possible to obtain much higher solubilityˇ¦s although with increasing quantities of insoluble material. These figures are quoted with no guarantee because of the many factors which can affect the solubilityˇ¦s of commercial colors, but they can serve as a useful guide in the choice of a suitable color for a particular solvent. Users are strongly recommended to carry out their own storage and shelf life tests using their own solvent medium.
