Pigment grades for automotive coatings

The challenge when combining pigments for the automotive industry is to balance the specifications of bright, chromatic color shades and sufficient opacity of the coating. Our products comprise pigments with excellent weathering fastness, high transparency and chromaticity, and good dispersibility.

Not only for Automotive OEM (original equipment manufacturing) but also for aircraft, railroad and trucks the ideal combination of binders and pigments is clearly essential. Clariant cares about the performance of the final application as much as we do about the color, and we serve these markets with tailored solutions.

Our high-performance pigments fulfill the quality requirements and supply consistency for Automotive refinishing applications. This makes it easy for our customers to match an OEM shade for a repair job which is virtually invisible.
