Holliday Pigments' Ultramarine Grade 71

Following customer feedback and a change in regulation, Holliday Pigments' latest pigment has been developed for use in children's toy applications. Ultramarine Grade 71 enables customers to continue using ultramarine blues in complete confidence for the most demanding applications as specified in the recently updated EU Toys Safety Directive (Safety of Toys: Directive 2009/48/EC) which came into effect on 20 July 2013.
