It has a similar mass tone (but more transparent) as Cadmium Orange, although it remains brighter in its tint when mixed with white.
A painter cannot mix a secondary colour with the same purity and power of this orange, which means it has value on most painter's palettes. When you use it thinly a rich glowing glaze can be created, bouncing the light back and forth through the top layers.

According to the Munsell colour charts I've produced with all my paints, this is the orange oil paint with the highest chroma. I've tested it against almost 30 tubes of various brands. It's remarkably lightfast for such a vivid colour.
