Our laboratory has more than four times the space and equipment than previously.  The lab is now divided into two areas; one for the solvent colorants and the other for water soluble colorants.  The water soluble colorants lab conveniently houses our instruments for R&D and QC for Ink Jet Inks, Markers, Ball Point Pen Inks and Food Drug & Cosmetics colorants.
