Pyrrole Red is a unique modern opaque pigment with very high chroma. Originally developed for automotive finishes, Pyrrole Red yields cleaner mixes for artists wanting an opaque mixing red.

Pyrrole Red is non-toxic and therefore is a perfect alternative to cadmium reds. Pyrrole has equal opacity but is superior to cadmiums especially for exterior application due to better resistance against strong UV light and moisture.
