A new inorganic pigment, discovered as the result of an accident, is now reaching the market place and will shortly be added to the Colour IndexTM.
The pigment is a brilliant blue, known as “YInMn” blue. It’s based on an oxide made of Yttrium(Y), Indium (In) and Manganese (Mn). The YInMn name is shorthand for that. The pigment will be used in a wide range of coatings and plastics.
