Metallic and mineral effect color shades are becoming more and more popular for industrial applications. Clariant’s new Hostatint™ A 100—ST low viscosity preparations offer ready-to-use color solutions which enhance such effects with an intensity similar to that of dyes, while having very high light and weather fastness with no migration or bleeding.
The “super transparent” (ST) pigment preparations include highly transparent pigments, a widely compatible aldehyde resin and a solvent with a flash point above 100 ℃. This results in safer transportation, storage and handling. The new Hostatint™ A 100—ST range features nine colorants for solvent-based paint systems that allow access to the entire color circle.
Hostatint™ A 100—ST pigment preparations are easy and safe to use
Industrial coatings with the super transparency of Hostatint™ A 100—ST colorants can be used to add a quality appeal to applications by emphasizing the visibility of a substrate such as glass, wood or metal. Transparent coatings are also particularly effective in highlighting black/color contrast.
Main application fields highly transparent pigments
- Metallic effect coatings (3C coatings - e.g. computers, cellular phones, consumer goods; bicycle, motorbikes; car refinish, RAL metallic, candy color)
- Wood coatings (wood stains, UV curing)
- Glass coatings (container glass - e.g. bottles, jars; plate glass - e.g. mirrors)
- Coil coatings (on aluminum, on steel)
