DPP Red (PR-254)

        Unparalleled by other organic reds, this relatively new pigment threatens to give cadmium a run for its money as the unusurpable king of reds.  With a lightfastness rating that provoked a sea change of red in the car industry, Diketopyrolepyrole (DPP) is a veritable dynamo. Strength of chroma, lightfast, nearly opaque in covering power, and lacking the health hazards associated with cadmium, DPP Red receives full marks.

Lightfastness I ; Semi-opaque     
Bound in alkali refined linseed oil to maximize color warmth.
