Clariant is launching two new pigment dispersion ranges for North America’s industrial and architectural coatings manufacturers, plus its latest 2019 Automotive Styling Shades Trendbook.
The Hostatint A 100-ST range features nine ready-to-use, highly transparent pigment dispersions that offer the entire colour circle to solvent-based paint systems. They provide a cost-efficient way for manufacturers to enhance effects with colour intensity similar to dyes but with very high light and weather fastness, and no migration or bleeding.
This provides a cost-efficient way for manufacturers to meet trend directions in lifestyle electronics, consumer goods, wood, glass, coil coatings and automotive applications. The pigment dispersions are highly-stable, contributing to safer storage, transportation and handling, and a long paint shelf life.
Hostatint UV range for easy and safe colouration of radiation cured coating systems for industrial and wood coatings. The high-performance, easy-to-use colourants are offered as ready-to-use liquid pigment dispersions that support UV curing’s gain in popularity. They are high in pigment content but with a low viscosity that ensures good flow. The pigment dispersions go the next step in supporting easy formulation of low VOC high performance coatings, adding further value to the increased productivity, lower costs and surface performance improvements of UV cured wood coatings. The tinters are suitable for both interior and exterior coatings and cover the full colour spectrum in opaque and transparent applications for dual and 100% UV systems.
