  • Title: Solving incompatibility and inconsistency problems in industrial coatings through pigment dispersions.
  • Abstract: The broad diversity of industrial coating bases can add complexity to tinting and lead to costly reformulating in order to achieve an exact color match. Manufacturers frequently experience problems such as color float, rub-up, or inconsistent tinting; finally, a true “drop-in” solution is available for industrial coatings.

  • Title: Clariant's new Exolit® solutions for fire protective water- and solvent-borne coatings
  • Abstract: Based on more than 40 years of experience in the manufacturing of ammonium polyphosphate and its application in various fields Clariant has developed two new halogen-free flame retardants for water- and solvent-borne coatings. Exolit® AP 435 lowers your formulation viscosity, supports easy and constant production and product quality and keeps your water-based formulations flowable, even at low temperatures. Exolit® AP 418 (TP) improves the fire protection performance by offering an earlier on-setting reaction in solvent-based formulations.
