EASILY DISPERSIBLE PIGMENTS

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.

Dissolver Dispersion

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.

Co-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.

  • Hostaperm Yellow H3G 02

    Hostaperm Yellow H3G 02 is a “next generation” Pigment Yellow 154, using a more ecological finishing process. While the pigment maintains the universal application profile which is typical for P.Y. 154 pigments, it is particularly easy to disperse in water-borne systems: Optimum tinting strength can be achieved much faster in a bead mill or just by using a high-speed dissolver and suitable dispersing agents. Dispersions made with Hostaperm Yellow H3G 02 can be used to tint the new generation of low VOC decorative paints. * * As defined in EU directive 2004/42/EC, annex II, phase II. VOC standards and regulations vary by location. Product specific VOC information is available to customers upon request. It is the responsibility of the coatings manufacturer to determine standard compliance and appropriate claim for their products.

  • Hansa Brilliant Yellow 2GX 72-S
