PANTONE Nylon Brights
These electric hues add color vibrancy and a brilliant pop to your designs!
A collection of nylon swatches featuring the 21 most important shocking fluorescent shades provides designers developing products in various materials with an internationally recognized standard for accurate color selection, specification and reproduction. Set of 3 x 11 cm loose format nylon swatches are conveniently packaged on a single ring for easy removability and generously sized to provide greater visualization.
These bold bright colors have been especially selected for apparel use in the swimwear, outerwear, activewear, workwear and safety industries.
Hot nylon shades are ideal on their own or can be mixed together to create more intense color schemes. Each nylon brights swatch ring set includes a UV pouch to protect the colors while not in use.
Includes Color Manager software download enabling digital design with all PANTONE Color libraries (if you need technical support for this software please contact Pantone's customer service).
Of these 21 super bright colors, 14 contain flavine or rhodamine acid dyestuff; this qualifies them as “true” fluorescents in that they absorb invisible ultraviolet light and emit it as visible light, increasing the color’s perceived brightness. However, colors containing fluorescent dyes are, by nature, less resistant to the degrading effects of light and water. There are treatments that can be added to increase color fastness and durability.
Every PANTONE nylon brights dye lot is evaluated against a master digital standard and must pass both digital and visual evaluation. All colors are dyed in Nylon 6.6, a much improved fiber for light fastness and wash fastness over Nylon 6.

What do the suffixes TPG, TPX, TCX in the Pantone Fashion Home + Interiors -color system mean?
TPG/TPX and TCX - suffix simply tells you whether it is a color produced on paper or cotton.
- TPG = TEXTILE PAPER GREEN (launched in 2015 with environmentally friendlier pigments)
- TPX = TEXTILE PAPER, EXTENDED RANGE (launched in 2003, no longer in production and outdated)
- TCX = TEXTILE COTTON
Is there a difference in the Pantone textile system colors between the codes TP and TPG/TPX?
Yes, there are differences between the colour systems. The letter G (=GREEN) at the end tells it is a colour from the latest system, updated in 2015 with new colors added in 2020. The TPG suffix indicates more eco-friendly formulations.
The letter X at the end tells it is a colour from the EXTENDED RANGE system, updated in 2003 and no longer valid or in production.
If you are still using the TP or TPX system, you should update to TPG as quickly as possible.
