Clariant’s expansive range of pigment preparations provide a variety of ways for manufacturers to achieve the desired light fastness and opacity needs in their wood coatings and decorative stains. Our innovative pigment dispersions help protect wood and enhance its natural beauty in applications ranging from traditional solvent borne wood stains and clear wood finishes to environmentally conscious systems like water-based, water-miscible, and UV-curable wood coatings.
Aqueous binder-free pigment preparations based on non-ionic wetting agents and manufactured without using APEO additives. They are recommended for transparent wood stains & glazes. Binder free transparent Iron Oxide pigment preparations manufactured without using APEO additives are recommended for transparent wood stains & glazes.
Colanyl 100 Range
Binder free water-based organic and inorganic pigment preparations manufactured without using APEO additives. Colanyl 100 range is recommended for opaque or semi opaque wood stains & glazes.
Colanyl 500 Range
Aqueous binder-free pigment preparations manufactured without using APEO additives. These aqueous pigment preparations are compatible with water-based low VOC and VOC-free decorative coatings (1) and are recommended for opaque or semi opaque wood stains & glazes.
Hostatint 500 Range
Hostatint 500 is a range of binder-free pigment preparations manufactured without using APEO (alkylphenol ethoxylated) additives. They are developed for modern low VOC decorative coatings and are recommended for opaque or semi opaque wood stains & glazes. These multipurpose preparations are compatible with water-based and solvent-based decorative coatings.
Hostatint A 100 Range
Solvent based organic and inorganic pigment preparations containing an aldehyde carrier resin. They are recommended for semi opaque wood stains & glazes, using the organic-based & opaque Iron Oxides types and are recommended for transparent wood stains & glazes, using the newly developed transparent Iron Oxides types.
Hostatint A 100-ST Range
The Hostatint A 100-ST range contains pigments which have no halogens (chlorine or bromine) in their molecular formula. Bright green shades can now be formulated to meet the restrictions on halogen content in the electronics industry. Supplementing the well-established range of Hostatint A 100, the ST-preparations are based on a widely compatible aldehyde resin and a solvent with a flash point above 100 °C. This results in safer transportation, storage and handling. Suitable for highly transparent wood stains and glazes.

Hostatint UV Range
Hostatint UV is a range of pigment preparations, which do not contain water or solvents. They are designed to work best in 100% UV systems, but are also suitable for solvent-borne UV systems. Both, the binder and the diluent (HDDA) contained in the preparations, crosslink into the coating film under UV curing conditions.

Hostanol HW 30 Range
Hostanol HW 30 is a range of solid pigment preparations based on polyvinyl butyral as carrier material. It is suitable for use in alcohol containing systems, esters and glycols can be used as additional solvents. Main fields of application are highly transparent solvent-based wood stains and marker inks. Furthermore, they can be used in gravure and flexographic printing inks based on nitrocellulose and for coating aluminium foils.
