Ciba Specialty Chemicals has expanded its transparent pigment offerings with the acquisition of Sun Chemical Corporation’s perylene product line. Ciba will continue to produce perylene pigments using the same raw materials, process and production sites as Sun Chemical.
The products will be marketed under the Ciba Irgazine tradename. Perylene pigments are used in automotive effect styling, frequently in combination with transparent red pigments. More info: Ciba Specialty Chemicals, 41 61 636 11 11 • Fax: 41 61 636 12 12 • Web: www.cibasc.com.
