Pigments are insoluble materials that are capable of imparting its color into a substrate. They alter the appearance by selective absorption or by scattering of light. These pigments can be organic or inorganic, finely divided crystalline solids, and chemically unaffected materials. They are capable of protecting the surface from corrosion and weathering. Moreover, pigments tend to be highly durable, heat stable, and migration fast, hence they are widely being used in textile, paints, ink, plastics, paper industries, and many others.
