Where can I find Fluorescent colours?


Twitter Facebook Linked In

Fluorescent colours absorb ultraviolet light and emit it as visible light which increases the perceived brightness of the colour. Used in fashion products as well as in safety clothing these colours are in demand.

Pantone developed the Nylon Brights Swatch ring which contains 21 super bright colours – brighter than can be achieved on Cotton. The colours are dyed on Nylon 6,6 to optimise lightfastness and wash fastness. Of the 21 colours, 14 contain flavine or rhodamine acid dyestuff which qualifies them as true fluorescents. Colours include Safety Yellow 13-0630 TN, Green Gecko 13-0340 TN and Knockout Pink 16-2130 TN

Pantone developed additional fluorescent colours on Polyester, found in the Polyester Swatch Book. Sun Glare 13-0663 TSX, Lounge Lizard 16-0163 TSX, Candy Kiss 15-1863 TSX, Live Wire 15-1363 TSX.

Individual large swatches are also available, select Nylon swatch Cards or Polyester swatch Cards to access the colour range.

Cotton cannot be dyed with fluorescent dyes, therefore fluorescent colours cannot be found in the Pantone Fashion, Home +Interiors Cotton TCX range.
