Ultramarine Blue
 
Ultramarine Blue is an inorganic Mineral Pigment. Chemically it is a SODIUM ALUMINO SULFOSILICATE. The typical chemical analysis of medium Ultramarine Blue is SiO2-37%: Al203-28% : S-14%: NA2O-19% 
The tap density varies between 0.5 kg/1 per for the clearer type and 0.8 kg/1 for the darker ones.

Its synthetic manufacturing process and possibility for close control over its physical, chemical, and colour characteristics enable the production of several types of this blue pigment, which are readily accepted by plastic, printing ink, paint, cosmetic and many other industries due to advantages over other organic pigments and dyes.
