Re: Copper in Blue and Green Dyes

Yes, there are blue and green dyes that do not contain copper.
The problem is that in some cases that do not meet the fastness
requirements of the customer.  Copper dyes will meet the requirement.
Turquoise is especially hard to get without copper.  If you need more info,
e-mail me at hboyter@cstone.net.  I've been working on this problem for
over ten years.

P2 Tech -

Does anyone know if there are any blue and green dyes that do not contain
copper? Or contain a reduced amount of copper?

Thank you,  Becky
