SANODYE YELLOW 3GL
Sanodye® Yellow 3GL
Sanodye® Yellow 3GL is a homogeneous, water-soluble dye which is distinguished by high fastness
to light, weather and heat.
Sanodye® Yellow 3GL suitable for interior and exterior architectural purposes.
Sanodye® Yellow 3GL is also suitable for alloys containing silicon (Grinatal type); pleasant fast to
light olive shades are obtained.
1. Dye-specific data
Commercial form: fine granules
Shade: greenish yellow (lemon yellow)
Chemical character: methine dye
Bulking volume: 750 g/l
Solubility in water: 100 g/l at 20°C
Storage stability: virtually unlimited, store containers closed tightly
Ecotoxicological data: see Safety Data Sheet.
2. Application conditions
ConcentrationDyeing temperature Dyeing time
Standard coating thickness (12 µm) 0,05 - 3 g/l 25 - 60°C 10 - 20 min
Sanodal coating thickness (25 µm) 3 - 4 g/l 55 - 60°C 30 - 45 min
pH: 5,5 ± 0,5
Buffer: The dyebaths are preferably buffered with
8 g/l sodium acetate trihydrate
+ 0,4 ml/l acetic acid for pH 5.6
Water quality: preferably deionized
Sealing: preferably with Anodal® ASL (one or two stage)
3. Preparation of the dyebath
When preparing the dyebath care must be taken that the dye is well dissolved.
The dye can be dissolved in deionized water (80 – 90°C) in a separate container (5 parts water
to 1 part dye). This stock solution is then stirred into the dyebath.
4. Fastness of the dyeings
Sanodye® Yellow 3GL is distinguished by outstanding lightfastness and heatstability.
- Lightfastness of Sanodal® dyeings: rating > 9 (ISO 2135)
- Heatstability: no change after 12 h at 250°C/482°F.
5. Special remarks
- Unsealed dyeing can be stripped with nitric acid.
- The dyebaths are sensitive to sulphate and aluminium; anodized objects should therefore be
rinsed thoroughly before dyeing.
With the exception of exterior building elements, the dye can be applied together with
Sanodal® Turquoise PLW Liquid for green shades.
- Prevention of mould formation
An addition of an antimicrobial product can inhibit mould formation for a long time.
We recommend the addition of Nipacide CI 15 (See Technical Information) 25 – 50 mg/l.
6. Disposal of the dyebaths
Spent dyebaths must be disposed of; e.g. with Anodal® WT-1 Liquid. The precipitation method
is described in detail in the Technical Information bulletin for Anodal® WT-1 Liquid.
The table below shows the additions required for precipitating Sanodye® Yellow 3GL.
