Clariant’s range of next generation pigments (formerly ED pigments) simplifies the paint manufacturing process by avoiding the additional milling step. Eliminating bead milling carries a lot of benefits such as reduced production time (up to -85%) and lower energy costs (up to -90%), which is both profitable (up to -30 % cost savings) and sustainable. Additionally, reduced amounts of additives and less cleaning effort is necessary and less waste water generated.
Compared to conventional pigments, the time for bead-milling can be reduced. In many cases, expensive bead-mill operations can be completely replaced by simple dissolver dispersion.
Several of these pigments can be combined in one mill base formulation or co-dispersed with inorganic pigments to achieve a specific shade. This simplified process reduces manufacturing costs, improvesproductivity, and offers lower cost options.
»The next generation pigments from Clariant are so easy to disperse that your production gains flexibility and speed - bringing additional business within your reach. Besides, saving energy is good for everyone caring about sustainability - and profits.«
