Clariant: Focusing on High-Performance Pigments and Celebrating a New Joint Venture in Hangzhou

From November 7-9, the ChinaCoat 2006 will be held at the International Convention & Exhibition Center in Guangzhou, China. This internationally renowned event offers the coatings sector an ideal platform to feature new products and trends. In Hall 1D, Stand 525-534, Clariant’s Pigments & Additives Division will show its „70s“ brands. These high-performance pigments are a perfect alternative to conventional pigments containing lead, and they can be used both for industrial coatings and OEM automotive coatings.
The “70s” brands are established organic pigments whose individual properties make them especially suitable for decorative, industrial, and automotive applications. They stand out by high opacity, excellent rheological properties, and good dispersibility. They are also an ideal substitute for pigments containing heavy metals, whose use is increasingly restricted by stricter environmental legislation. The latest members of the “70s” brands are bright red—they are pigments based on diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) chemistry. Two high-performance grades are available in Colour Index Pigment Red 254. Hostaperm® Red D2G 70 is a high-value red pigment that is particularly suitable for OEM automotive paints and refinishes. Hostaperm® Red D3G 70 has high color strength and opacity, which makes it an ideal addition to Clariant’s range of pigments for industrial coatings, but also for automotive refinishes.
