Pigment Information

PR179-Perylene Maroon

Pigment Name

PR179-Perylene Maroon

Pigment Type

organic, anthraquinone

Chemical Formula



Perylene Maroon is a transparent, dull to moderately dull, deep red pigment. Its transparency makes it useful as a glazing color.  Its mixing complement is Phthalo Green, and together they produce a pure black that is darker than most carbon-based pigments.


Perylene Maroon has excellent permanence and lightfastness, and it can be an appropriate replacement for Anthraquinone Red in watercolor form.


Perylene Maroon has no significant acute toxicity. Its long term hazards are currently unknown.


Perylenes have been used as vat dyes since 1912, but they were not manufactured and sold as pigments until 1957.
