Easily Dispersible Pigments: An innovative approach for flexible, economic and sustainable paint production
Easily Dispersible (ED) pigments offer the unique opportunity to combine cost reduction with operational efficiency by simplifying the pigment dispersion process for organic pigments. With this innovative approach, ED Pigments are an easy and sustainable solution to achieve perfect colors.
In addition to its presence on the booth, ED Pigments will feature in the ECS 2013 conference program. Dr Anaïs Bialy from Clariant will present the topic: “Easily dispersible pigments: An innovative approach for flexible, economic and sustainable paint production”.
Exolit AP: Superior fire protection that is efficient and more environmentally compatible
Clariant’s flame retardants for intumescent coatings are the ideal method for combining an attractive architectural appearance with excellent fire safety. The ammonium phosphate (APP) Exolit® AP line of products emits no emissions during processing and disperses readily in compatibility with most binders. In the event of fire, they reduce smoke corrosivity and density considerably.
Ceridust TP: Renewable-based waxes for powder coatings and printing inks
Ceridust® 7820 TP and Ceridust 8330 TP provide renewable resource-based solutions for powder coatings and printing inks, respectively. At high wax concentrations, Ceridust 7820 TP shows almost no matting and virtually eliminates pinholes without reducing the gloss level, for high quality surfaces. Ceridust 8330TP is a powerful, rub-resistance additive for all ink systems based on a natural polymer.
Hostavin Disp. : Water-based UV stabilizer dispersions offering better performance at lower dosage
Clariant offers coatings manufacturers a major step forward in enhancing the durability and UV protection of waterborne coatings with new high performance UV absorber Hostavin® 3330 disp. XP. The first high loaded triazine dispersion allows waterborne coatings to achieve the performance of conventional solventborne systems at optimized costs.
POS Tinting Systems: One-stop-shop convenience
When Clariant acquired Italtinto in April 2011, the company gained more than 40 years of experience in tinting systems. As a result Clariant now provides its worldwide customers with Point-of-Sale (POS) Tinting Systems, a comprehensive solution to meet all their color needs.
