Dioxazine violet is transparent and has a very high color strength.
In its pure application without dilution, it seems almost like Black and produces a metallic-golden glow. With Titanium White, however, it mixes a medium, opaque, violet hue. PV 37 is a bit more bluish in his shades then dioxazine violet PV 23 or cobalt violet.
A mixture of dioxazine violet, burnt sienna or translucent yellow earth yields pure, dark black. If you mix dioxazine violet into a green, you get a warm shade of green that is very suitable for shades. Likewise, a blend with translucentred is very suitable for warm shades.
Dioxazine violet is also used as a blending component to give phthaloblue a red engraving.
The color is only useful unmixed as a thin glaze and in this case it has a wonderful effect.
Dioxazine violet is known since 1928 as a pigment, but only in 1952 reported the Hoechst a patent on the manufacturing procedures. Shortly thereafter appeared Dioxazine commercially.
